A few more details on the Harrison project

We now know the primary contractor, the rough start date and the rough completion date for the new Harrison Medical Center hospital in Silverdale.

The builder, Balfour Beatty Construction, was announced by Harrison Wednesday. Work will be overseen by Howard S. Wright, Balfour Beatty’s Seattle-based Washington Division.

0925_Harrison_Silverdale_HORZ_KSI caught up with Chris Martindale, health care lead for Howard S. Wright, on Friday to learn more about the plans.

Martindale said the firm is already lining up subcontractors for electrical and mechanical work. It expects to bring on about 50 subcontractors for the project as a whole, and will hire as many locals as possible.

“We’ll absolutely be reaching out to local partners,” he said.

Martindale estimated the expansion will require roughly 585,000 man-hours. About 150 people will be employed at the job site.

Site work will begin in late summer at the earliest. Structural work could commence in January 2016. The expanded campus is expected to open in 2018.

Martindale believes Balfour Beatty was a good fit for the project because it has both a local presence and national resources. Balfour Beatty is the nation’s third largest builder, and seventh largest builder of health care facilities.

The company has a few Kitsap connections. A senior superintendent for the Harrison expansion, Greg Rosinski, and project manager Ahren Boettger both live in the county, Martindale said.
