HWC Engineering provided civil engineering design services for the expansion of Witham Hospital.
The expansion included a four-story structural steel building, relocated utilities, and revised access for the site. The project required modifications to several areas of the campus. The existing detention pond in front of the hospital was modified to allow for expansion and additional parking. The existing detention pond north of the site was expanded to account for the new drainage analysis.
A new parking lot was added to the east side of the building, and an expansion of the southwest parking lot added more parking for the existing facilities. The building expansion was in the area of an existing parking lot and required modifications to sanitary sewers, storm sewers, waterlines, electrical lines, and parking lot lighting. The expansion also added a new patient loading area and sidewalks for access around the new building.
