Healthcare Design Magazine May/June 2014 Vol. 14 No. 4–
The cover story of Healthcare Design Magazine’s May/June 2014 issue,Common Goals Inspire MaineGeneral Hospital Project, gives a project overview of MaineGeneral’s beautiful new 644,000 square foot inpatient facility in Maine’s Kennebec Valley. The featured story focuses on how the client was dedicated to building a local project team that executed the project via an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) system, which reduced construction time from the projected 36 month schedule to just 26. The project, completed in August 2013, earned a LEED Gold Certification.
That’s all exciting stuff! But we here at Crypton are also pretty excited to see that, not only has Crypton Green been specified on the project, it made the cover! SMRT specified Momentum Textiles’s Upside pattern in At Ease for the cafeteria banquets, which are protected from oil- and water-based spills using Crypton technology.
Momentum Textiles Upside fabric in At Ease powered by Crypton Green
The fabric is comprised of 100% Post-Consumer Recycled Polyester, so it is offered as part of our Crypton Green lineup. The fabric can contribute to LEED Materials & Resources credits for recycled content, and is GREENGUARD Certified to contribute to LEED Indoor Air Quality credits. Additionally, as with all Crypton technologies, Crypton Green was developed with environmentally preferable chemistry and is processed in our closed-loop facility in Kings Mountain, NC.
Architecture firm TRO Jung Brannen of Boston partnered with SMRT of Portland, Maine for design, and a joint venture betweenRobins & Morton of Birmingham, Alabama and HP Cummings of Portland, Maine handled the construction. You can read more about the design approach on TRO JB’s blog.
We’re proud to be included in such a beautiful, thoughtful, and environmentally conscious project. Congratulations to all involved on a project well done!
