Mission Hospital for Advanced Medicine

North Carolina

The new 12-story, 611,500 square foot tower includes 220 patient rooms, consolidated Operating Rooms (ORs) with support space, expanded Emergency Department space, Interventional Cardiology and Interventional Radiology, and indoor and outdoor gathering areas for families, visitors, friends and loved ones. The construction project is the largest in western North Carolina’s history.

Walter P Moore solved several major challenges on the project. The steeply sloping site coupled with extensive rock excavation required a customized foundation solution and constant communication during construction. The building was designed to accommodate future vertical expansion with minimal disruption during future construction activities. The concrete framing system was optimized to accommodate same-handed patient rooms, floor depressions, and floor penetrations while maintaining regular formwork modules and consistent, efficient reinforcing.
