Norton Children's Hospital Renovation and Addition

Louisville, KY

Norton Children’s Hospital is consistently ranked by U.S. News Media Group as one of the top pediatric hospitals in the nation. To maintain their position among the elite pediatric hospitals, Norton needed to renovate their existing downtown facility to create additional space for support.

  • Includes a new electrical vault and generator building which houses a primary electrical service and backup electrical system – the backup electrical system was tunneled under a downtown roadway

  • Additions included a new trauma elevator and additional floor space for conference rooms, work rooms, on-call rooms and offices
