Eastman Cooke was tasked with transforming a 2,500 sq. ft. former bank into a high-tech Epic Training Center for medical professionals. The facility was constructed to facilitate the integration between two major healthcare providers, to familiarize staff with the Epic electronic medical record software system, and to improve accessibility for Long Island staff who no longer have to commute to Manhattan for training.
Crews worked diligently (including nights and weekends) to meet an expedited project schedule to construct a 22-seat classroom, staff offices, conference room, kitchen, and individual workstations. Eastman Cooke worked closely with the Nassau County Fire Marshall and the Town of Hempstead Building Department to meet all code requirements and inspections, and continuously demonstrated careful consideration of building occupants.
The exemplary teamwork exhibited throughout the project resulted in excellent communication between architects, construction crews and clients, as well as project managers, superintendents and subcontractors. Weekly meetings helped to minimize field changes and a punch list of any outstanding items.
Our strong relationship with the client helped to drive this exciting project, and we look forward to more collaboration in the future.
