Key Glass Awarded Brandon Regional Hospital

Key Glass LLC in Bradenton, Fla., was awarded the glass and glazing contract for the Brandon Regional Medical Center in Brandon, Fla. The project is a 20,000 square foot renovation of the three-story Women’s Center. Construction for this project began in December 2010 and is projected to be completed by March 2011.

“While other markets are suffering, our commitment is to focus efforts in the markets that are experiencing growth, such as health care facilities,” says, Key Glass owner Greg Burkhart. “With our extensive background and experience in healthcare, it allows us to continue to capture those projects.”

“In addition to Key Glass’s experience, we selected Key Glass because of their commitment to meeting the very aggressive project schedule requirements and also gained insight to the functionality of the design, which in turn assisted in the other structural aspects of the building system components,” says John Hinson field operations manager for general contractor PHM Group Inc. “When we selected Key Glass we felt it was important to work with a glazier that understands the codes that need to be met in health care buildings and Key Glass has the knowledge of those strict codes.”
