Hendricks Community Hospital
- Addition to the Hospital Facility
- Detention Pond
- Mobile MRI Bay
- Replacement of facility parking
- Project Coordination with architect, general contractor and subcontractors
- Cooperation in adjacent city street project
- USDA funding
Hendricks Community Hospital added to their existing facility, which required the completion of several smaller projects in conjunction with the overall construction project.
The hospital facility addition design included City utility connections, accounting for the increased traffic on the local road system, excavation to accommodate the new addition, a storm water study to mitigate the additional impervious area created, a new heliport facility, as well as a mobile MRI parking bay.
The true test of the project was to combine all of these design challenges with a building design team and ownership group to coordinate and communicate the expectations and responsibilities for all the project stakeholders. All of these factors were navigated to culminate in an anticipated facility opening date of fall of 2015 for the Hendricks community.
- Electrical Power
DGR Engineering (DGR) worked with the City and the project architect for all aspects of the project including topographic survey, site design, construction survey, construction observation and administration.

Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation
The project was bid and came in under budget. Manhole lids were raised to provide better access in some areas, and rehabilitation of the sewer system was completed to give another 50 years of life to the City’s much-needed infrastructure.
Wastewater Treatment Facility
MBBR technology was chosen based on cost, operational flexibility and most importantly, limited land availability.
DGR employed a Geographic Information System (GIS) in conjunction with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to first determine the 100-year flood elevations and delineate the floodway boundaries.
Due to concerns with the age and condition of the structures, along with safety clearances to energized equipment and conductors, a project was undertaken to replace the old infrastructure with new underground lines and associated padmount equipment.

Morningside Avenue was reconstructed totaling approximately 1,300 linear feet. The project included new sanitary sewer, water main, storm sewer, fiber conduits, decorative street lighting, and 9-inch concrete paving with colored concrete sidewalks.
