UVA Hospital Expansion
Century (in collaboration with Skanska USA) broke ground on the UVA Hospital Expansion in August 2016. The $142 million, 520,000 square foot project will increase the current emergency department and add surgical services suites, numerous ancillary spaces and a six-story inpatient tower. Century’s contract includes four 12-story (205’ tall) core walls, 421,000 sqaure feet of slab on deck and 52,000 square feet of slab on grade, requiring two tower cranes (227’ and 266’ to hook) and 13,500 cubic yards of concrete.
