On June 3rd Hartford Medical Group (HMG), Eastern Rehabilitation Group (ERN), Hartford Hospital affiliates and the design builder, O,R&L Construction, celebrated the construction of a new medical building at 1025 Silas Deane Hwy in Wethersfield.
In attendance were, Mayor Adil of Wethersfield and several area officials along with staff from Hartford Hospital, HMG, ERN and many involved in the planning and construction of the project.
Instead of the traditional shovels breaking the earth groundbreaking, this event had representatives of the project ride up in a scissors lift to tighten the steel with gold wrenches as representation of the security of the continuing steel phase of construction.
During the design-build process, O,R&L Construction was able to incorporate green building strategies, including the upgrade of insulation and windows through incentives from the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund, high performance mechanical systems, energy-conscious lighting design and non-irrigated/water conserving landscaping.
