Mountain Laurel Medical Center - Grantsville

Mountain Laurel Medical Center - Grantsville

We have had the pleasure of working with the staff from the local Mountain Laurel Medical Center for the past few months.  Yesterday was their Open House, and while the weather was a bit gloomy, it was an exciting day as we turned over the keys to their new location in Grantsville, MD!  The official ribbon cutting ceremony will be in a few months, but they saw their first patients yesterday, and continue to add new patients.

This Owner-Client relationship was not typical to our normal build process.  Beth Little Terry, CEO of Mountain Laurel Medical Center, and Jeff Gosnell began discussions about a year ago to figure out how to get the project built, which included some timing complications with grant funding opportunities.  Everyone agreed that this Medical Center would be a great opportunity for the town of Grantsville and its community, and we needed to make a decision on how to move forward.  After some discussion, approval from the board, and funding assistance from First United Bank and Trust, Gosnell decided to construct the building under their ownership, and lease it back to Mountain Laurel, who at a later date will purchase the facility.  

The design for the Medical Center fits elegantly into its surroundings, and is a welcome addition to the community alongside the Library, ball fields and residential homes.  The Architect on the project was Bob Lindsey, AIA, from LAI Architects

Passive House, Mountain Lake Park - Insulation

Passive House, Mountain Lake Park - Insulation

Earlier this summer we started construction on a Passive House in Mountain Lake Park. The home was designed for a local couple who have had their heart set on building a sustainable home for years.  The owners began working with Carri Beer, AIA, LEED AP, from Brennan and Company Architects, and Passive House consultant Michael Hindle. 

The Passive House has many energy efficient and sustainable details.  Below are some photos of the excavation, foundation, and footing insulation.  

The footings bear on a cellular glass insulation block called FOAMGLAS from Pittsburgh corning, and the under slab, interior and exterior of the footings have Roxul Rockboard mineral wool insulation.
