Topping off ceremonies are a tradition in the construction industry, marking the completion of a new building’s steel structure.

As owner’s representatives for Beaumont Health’s $160 million Master Facilities Plan expansion and renovation initiative, our staff would like to congratulate Beaumont Hospital-Farmington Hills for reaching this significant milestone in the construction of its South Tower.

Plante Moran Cresa has worked with Beaumont Hospital-Farmington Hills (formerly Botsford Hospital) since 2011. Now our team acts as owner’s representative for its hospital renovation and expansion projects.

Beaumont Hospital-Farmington Hills expansion details

The South Tower construction is only one part of the hospital’s Master Facilities Plan. The capital program encompasses the following projects:

  • New construction of two patient towers, the South tower and the East Critical Care Tower
  • Construction of a new Central Energy Plant, which will be 30% more energy efficient than the previous plant, quieter, and more environmentally friendly
  • 473-car parking structure
  • Infrastructure improvements within existing hospital buildings

The two hospital expansion projects and energy plant will ultimately add 193,000 square feet to Beaumont’s existing 495,475 square feet.

The target completion date for some of the renovations and the towers’ construction is early 2019; the rest of the hospital renovations are expected to wrap up by early 2020.
