Worth & Company Exemplifies Innovation St. Luke’s Hospital Design/Build Project Honored for Outstanding Tradesman

(Pipersville, PA – May 2012) –Worth & Company successfully completed the St. Luke’s Riverside project in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. A prime example of instituting the industry’s premier technology, this 108 bed hospital facility, enlisted Worth’s expertise in a design/build capacity that encompassed the construction of complex plumbing, HVAC, and medical gas systems.

Due to the pre-fabrication process, manpower and management skills, Worth & Company was selected by Iron Hill Construction Management and St. Luke’s Hospital to manage the construction, scheduling, and type of systems utilized. Such supervision allowed for flexibility, and kept the project moving forward on schedule, in spite of major changes throughout the design and construction process. In recognition of the company’s efforts and contributions to the project, Worth was recognized by Iron Hill Construction with the annual Outstanding Tradesman Award.

The result was a well-executed and successfully completed venture that will open the door to future design/build opportunities.”
