University Medical Center of El Paso.

Work included the renovation of an existing 60-year-old hospital as well as the construction of two new major additions, including the 224,000-sq-ft women and children’s hospital in a new 11-story tower.

MMC Contractors performed mechanical pre- construction for the new facility.

The $195 million project began in March 2007, and careful planning kept the hospital operating during the entire construction process.
