Pavilion time-lapse video
Watch this one-minute, time-lapse video of the pavilion construction at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center since December 2020, when the webcam was installed. Many thanks to Cook Solutions Group for the webcam and the video!
Medical Center Drive to close temporarily
A new sewer line for the pavilion will require the closure of a small section of Medical Center Drive near the Cardiovascular Institute for three to four days.
The closure will start April 19 while Knife River crews dig a new manhole, install piping and backfill to connect the pavilion’s sewer line into city services. Medical Center Drive should reopen later that week, but work will continue through April 30. Traffic will be rerouted behind the CVI building and P2 parking garage during the closure.
Set in concrete
The last week of February marked a milestone: the first big concrete pour of the pavilion's foundation. Join Jim Mahar of Andersen Construction on a tour of the site.
Blowin' in the wind
Howling winds that sometimes hammer the Rogue Valley raise an obvious question for employees and neighbors of Asante Rogue Regional: How does that 205-foot crane on site handle such brute force? Weather-vane mode.
The crane rises
Maxim Crane Works crews erected a 205-foot crane in driving rain on Jan. 6, 2021, at the construction site for Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center's new pavilion. This sped-up video shows them raising the cab to sit on the crane at 165 feet. The actual time it took was 2-1/2 minutes. The crane will be able to pick up 11,900 pounds in a 262-foot radius (think materials sitting on trucks on Siskiyou Boulevard) and as much as 55,000 pounds in a 72-foot radius. It'll remain for the duration of the project. Great work, Maxim and Andersen Construction!
