Alvin H. Butz, Inc. Completes Lobby Renovations for Lehigh Valley Health Network

Allentown, PA, May 20, 2014 . . . Alvin H. Butz, Inc. recently completed renovations to the Medical Imaging Lobby at Lehigh Valley Hospital - Cedar Crest.

The lobby renovations and expansion added additional space, creating a more comfortable atmosphere while making it easier for patients and visitors to enter the building and find their destination within the hospital.

The multi-phased lobby renovations consisted of:

  • 806 sq. ft. of additional space
  • 2,500 sq. ft. of significant renovations
  • 4,000 sq. ft. of upgrades to the walls, floors and ceiling
  • New 4,600 sf. ft. canopy to replace the existing 1,800 sq. ft. canopy
All areas surrounding construction were occupied and fully functional during the renovations. The project also required strict compliance with Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) class 3 guidelines.

"The Butz project team was more than willing to work with us and incorporate a team mentality into the project," said Randal Shelly, Senior Project Manager at Lehigh Valley Health Network. "This ensured that all aspects of the project met our needs."

While construction was underway, employees and visitors of the hospital were allowed access to a temporary lobby entrance.

Prior to this project, Butz also completed an expansion and renovations to the hospital's rapid response laboratory and pathology department.

"Patient care is a top priority for both the hospital and the entire community, and we are pleased to know we've helped improve it," said Greg L. Butz, President and CEO of Alvin H. Butz, Inc.
