Fisk Electric Company secures $41 million subcontract for Gloria Drummond Patient Tower at Boca Raton Regional Hospital
Boca Raton, Florida – Tutor Perini Corporation, a prominent civil, building, and specialty construction firm, announced today that its subsidiary, Fisk Electric Company, has secured a $41 million subcontract from Robins & Morton, the project’s general contractor, for the electrical component of the forthcoming Gloria Drummond Patient Tower at Boca Raton Regional Hospital in South Florida.
The nine-story patient tower will feature 184 private patient rooms, cutting-edge surgical suites with 20 operating rooms, critical care units, and a pharmacy. Additionally, it will accommodate the Michelle and Michael Hagerty Center for Graduate Medical Education, more than doubling the existing education space and attracting top medical school graduates.
The tower will span over 417,000 square feet, bringing the hospital’s total area to more than 1.08 million square feet. The Gloria Drummond Patient Tower represents a significant aspect of Boca Raton Regional Hospital’s transformation, aimed at enhancing care for the expanding South Florida community.
The project is striving for both LEED sustainability certification and WELL certification, potentially making it one of the first hospital facilities in Florida to achieve WELL certification, a performance-based international standard for promoting health and well-being within the built environment.
Work on the project has already begun, with substantial completion expected in July 2025. The contract value will be incorporated into the company’s second-quarter 2023 backlog.
