Opened in September of 2004, the $227 million South Tower was planned to replace part of the original 50-year-old facility. Shaw was selected in 2001 by Barton Malow, HarleyEllis, and Beaumont as the Design/Assist Electrical Contractor. Because of Shaw’s performance during this process -- plus past performance over the decades on other projects -- Shaw also was awarded the G.M.P. contract for all of the electrical and systems work for the new project.

As part of the Design/Assist process, Shaw Electric drew on its long history of health-care facilities to provide more than $4 million worth of alternatives and cost-savings ideas. These ideas included material savings, installation savings and alternative manufacturers and suppliers.

Also, Shaw provided constructibility review of the drawings to identify conflicts during the design stages that helped avoid costly problems during the project.
