When Inspira Medical Center of Vineland, NJ, wanted to add two floors to its acute care building, they set some ambitious goals. Specifically, they needed to match the design theme of the existing single-story structure. And they were looking for a quick solution, even though it was the beginning of winter. General contractor Hunter Roberts Construction Group brought in StoPanel Technology affiliate Jersey Panel for design-assist support and ultimately chose StoPanel Classic NExT® ci as the cladding.
The decision proved especially advantageous since the winter turned out to be very harsh. And the spring weather was even worse. Rather than taking a conventional construction time frame of four or five months, Jersey Panel built 30,000 square feet of exterior wall panels at its nearby manufacturing facility and shipped them to the site. Installation took less than two weeks. “The cost savings was off the chart,” according to Jersey Panel CEO Dominick Baruffi. And Inspira Medical Center had its 72 new patient rooms operating much sooner than expected.
