Cedars Sinai Medical Center
Los Angeles, California
Following the devastating Northridge earthquake in 1994, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center needed to replace a badly damaged building. Working closely with Swinerton Builders, Universal Metro completed this eleven story (250,000 square foot) tower in 2006. Under the pressure of an incredibly compacted schedule, the general contractor leaned on Universal Metro’s team to ensure the accelerated scheduling demands could be met. Utilizing Universal Metro’s expert labor technicians, the final four floors were completed at one time under the direction of four separate crew leads. The work in this 150-bed facility included a moisture sealer and Ardex treatment, heat welded and self coved sheet goods, carpet, ceramic tile, and even a state-of-the-art helipad on the building’s roof.
