Houston Methodist Hospital has awarded two renovation and expansion projects to McCarthy Building Cos., Inc. A demolition, renovation, and expansion of the Houston Methodist Research Institute’s imaging suite and a build out of a new GMP cleanroom in the facility’s outpatient center will be the scope of the work in Houston.

A complete demolition on the first level, 16,500-square-foot imaging suite will begin at Houston Methodist Research Institute and the suite will be reconfigured and expanded. When completed, the unit will house three new pieces of imaging equipment.

The other project is a 5,000-square-foot demolition and build out of a new cleanroom on the third floor in the outpatient center. This will include approximately 1,500 square feet of a pre-fabricated GMP cleanroom space and 3,500 square feet of support spaces as well as renovations on level two and four.

Construction on both projects is expected to be complete in Spring 2019.
