The helipad at UMass Memorial Medical Center’s University Campus is an essential part of the hospital’s patient transport operations. Its cast-in-place concrete slab exhibited joint deterioration exacerbated by plowing and deicing operations. SGH investigated the cause of the slab’s deterioration, designed temporary repairs, and designed a replacement slab with a snowmelt system. We also designed a temporary helipad and assisted with staging operations to maintain helicopter access to the hospital during demolition and construction of the new helipad.
