Mercy Orthopedic Hospital

The addition of the Orthopedic Hospital to Mercy’s Healthcare Facilities in Springfield, Missouri has added numerous opportunities for several contractors in the Southwest region of the state. Emery Sapp & Sons Inc. was amongst these contractors and was fortunate enough to capture a large part of the project when the Springfield Branch was awarded the mass grading, underground utilities, and miscellaneous pavement items.

Scope of Work

The selection and dedication of a successful construction delivery team proved to be a critical success factor throughout the build-out of this new medical facility and campus for Mercy. Even before the plans were finalized best practices, schedule, and cost savings collaboration by Emery Sapp & Sons, Olsson Associates, and McCarthy Building Companies enabled this project to move forward without delay and with a unified site construction plan & approach. Emery Sapp & Sons self-performed multiple civil components of this project to include the mass grading of this 80-acre project, underground storm, sanitary and utility; concrete structure and permanent retaining walls and naturally landscaped green scaped areas. In and throughout the entire construction schedule, good environmental stewardship and concern for the adjacent neighborhood populations were promoted. The overall scope of the project included 12 acres of clearing, stockpiling 10,000 cubic yards of topsoil for future use, and nine sanitary manholes.
