Peeling off, then replacing, the exterior of a still-in-operation 12-story intensive care unit requires the right experience and the right temperament.

This Berghammer project at the Knisely Tower at Aurora St. Luke’s in Milwaukee demonstrated the unmatched level of creativity and expertise we bring to healthcare facility construction. Throughout the two-year façade overhaul, Berghammer successfully managed a series of obstacles:

  • Engaged multiple Aurora St. Luke’s departments in coordinating patient relocation in phases
  • Maintained negative pressure airflow to prevent room-to-room cross-contamination
  • Scrambled to take down mast climbers and crane booms with just 30 minutes notice when Flight For Life approached.

Berghammer’s work increased the building’s lifespan by 40 years. New façade material boosted energy efficiency 30 percent. Berghammer also found a solution for re-routing duct work that saved $700,000 from initial estimates.

When results matter and deadlines are imperative, Berghammer Construction is the only choice for healthcare facility construction in southeastern Wisconsin.

As Vice President of Construction, Martin specializes in the management of healthcare projects at every stage of development including feasibility studies, design development, phasing plans, construction management and project closeout.  His reputation of having the ability to blend the relationships of the user groups, design consultants and the different trades has been key in being able to deliver successful projects over his many years.  This has helped him understand the design intent, coordinate a common goal and manage the project.

Over the past 22 years, Martin has absorbed a wealth of knowledge and experience to understand the needs of a healthcare facility before, during and after a construction project.  Having an office on site in multiple healthcare facilities for many years has given Martin a comprehensive understanding of how a hospital functions and how important it is to the administration to provide the best possible environment to the patients.

Martin has been trained in Safety, Infection Control and Life Safety to meet the demanding requirements and conditions of a healthcare project.  His experiences with bringing multiple facilities in compliance with the Department of Quality Assurance (DQA), Joint Commission Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JACHO), and Center For Medicare/Medicaid (CMS) has provided a strong foundation in the understanding of Federal, State and Local codes as they apply to healthcare facilities.
