Racanelli Construction Company Completes Brookhaven Memorial Hospital’s KNAPP Cardiac Center

Racanelli Construction Company, Inc. (Melville, NY, www.racanelliconstruction.com), a leading construction management, general contractor and design/build resource for commercial, industrial, retail, medical, pre-engineered and multi-unit residential projects, recently completed the renovation of Brookhaven Memorial Hospital’s KNAPP Cardiac Center in Patchogue, NY. The company served as the General Contractor and Construction Manager on a major renovation of over 17,000 square feet on the existing facility, integrating it with the new over 58,000 square foot four-story building.


The project involved structural steel and masonry work, the application of exterior metal panel systems, and the installation of an EPDM roof (i.e., a highly durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane comprised of ethylene proplylene diene terpolymer). The new building also involved the development of four new operating room (OR) suites, EP/CATH lab suites, Nuclear Gamma Camera/Stress facility, PACU areas, offices and doctors’ lounges. New sheet vinyl flooring, ceramic and terrazzo tile, vinyl wall covering, specialty wood ceilings, plastic laminate millwork, and Corian and stone countertops also were provided in the renovation.


A particular challenge Racanelli Construction addressed in the KNAPP Cardiac Center project renovation was to effectively deliver a state-of-the-art medical facility incorporating critical mechanical systems and accommodating vital medical systems (e.g., the Ors, EP/CATH lab and Nuclear Gamma Camera).


Racanelli Construction has been helping meet the facility and expansion needs of Brookhaven Memorial Hospital for over 15 years. The company has been involved in such projects as the construction of the Hospital’s main canopy, dialysis center, ambulatory surgery center, emergency department, hyperbaric center and its Oakdale offices.


The project value was $41,000,000.
