Healthcare construction has been the mainstay of Building's business, comprising more than 75% of the company's annual volume. OHLA was awarded a contract to extend and renew the Dr. Horacio E. Oduber Hospital in Oranjestad, Aruba.
OHLA USA is strongly committed to sustainability and is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) which plays a leading role in sustainable building and construction. Many of the firm’s hospital projects have obtained LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the USGBC.
OHLA healthcare clients in the United States include Baptist Health South Florida, South Miami Hospital, Miami Children’s Hospital, Boca Raton Regional Hospital, and Mercy Hospital and Mount Sinai, in Miami, just to name a few. Arellano, the South-Florida-based arm of OHL North America, recently completed a design/build parking garage for the Miami Children’s Hospital that involved such challenges as traffic control, residential limitations, and reworking of old construction. Their presence in the South Florida region is invaluable and has been chronicled in local media here. Other notable projects include:
- Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute
- South Miami Hospital Clinical Expansion
- UHealth Ambulatory Medical Center
- East Ridge Retirement Village
- Institute for Healthy Living, Abacoa
