Women’s Hospital of Texas
In 2014, The Women’s Hospital of Texas, a Houston hospital dedicated to the health of women and newborns, underwent a major renovation and expansion. Pieper-Houston Electric assisted with both phases of the project. The renovation involved a 7,400 sq. ft. update to the existing East wing of the hospital. Pieper also helped with the 61,000 sq. ft. vertical expansion to the West wing of the hospital. The expansion included the construction and wiring of the hospital’s brand-new pediatric unit and intensive care pediatric unit.
Completing electrical work in an actively operating hospital always involves particular challenges because of the need to maintain a continual power supply for patient care. The electrical work is also particularly complicated, having to plan for complex medical equipment and additional back-up systems.
