Holy Cross Hospital - Germantown

The first new hospital facility to be built in Montgomery County, Maryland in 35 years, this project involved the construction of a six-story hospital building, a medical office building, a parking garage, surface parking lot, and a storm water management pond.  The new 93-bed hospital facility offers emergency, surgical, medical, psychiatric, and obstretric care with all private patient rooms.  Construction of the project also included a site utility package defined as:

  • Installation of 19 storm water management facilities and associated storm drains, including: bio-swales, micro bio-retention facilities, and a green roof component.
  • The connection of onsite water and sewer to the systems provided along Observation Drive.  The water connection has two meter vaults with an on-site loop for redundancy and will also service the onsite fire hydrants.

Landscaped gardens include hardscaping and aesthetic amenities such as walls and a dry stream bed.  Additionally, sidewalks, site lights, bike racks, benches, railings, and other miscellaneous features are located in strategic areas across the property. Sustainable design elements were incorporated within the project’s design to achieve Gold certification.

SK&A provided soil analyses, testing and inspection of sitework and materials, as well as inspection of the waterproofing system for this project.
