NORWALK, Conn. - EMCOR Group Inc., a Fortune 500® leader in mechanical and electrical construction, energy infrastructure, and facilities services, announced that it has begun work on a number of new projects in the health care sector. According to the company, the project awards reflect EMCOR’s continuing ability to provide specialty construction and project management services to the nation’s leading health care providers, a growing sector in which the company has been a longtime leader.

“Average life expectancies in the United States have reached record levels and our aging population is steadily growing, creating an increasing demand for the delivery of sophisticated and efficient services for the health care sector,” said Frank T. MacInnis, chairman and CEO of EMCOR Group. “These new projects demonstrate our continued leadership in providing the ‘system-rich’ solutions the medical and pharmaceutical sectors demand across a range of venues, including hospitals, clinics, and diagnostic, research, and bio-pharmaceutical facilities.”

In 2006 EMCOR companies worked on 169 projects in the health care and biotechnology industries. In addition, the company’s 2007 project backlog at the end of the third quarter included $696 million in health care projects, accounting for 15.5 percent of total backlog.

EMCOR’s recent project awards in the health care sector include:

Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center (Mishawaka, Ind.) - EMCOR subsidiary Shambaugh & Son was awarded the mechanical contract for this new $250-million, state-of-the-art, seven-story critical care facility, which includes 254 patient rooms, 16 surgery centers, an ICU, an emergency room, and a birthing center. Shambaugh will provide over 25 miles of mechanical utility piping as well as all air handling and HVAC systems.

Geary Community Hospital (Junction City, Kan.) - EMCOR subsidiary Central Mechanical Construction will provide plumbing and mechanical systems for the three-story, 100,000-square-foot expansion of this facility. The project will include all potable water in the building and medical gas systems in addition to HVAC piping and ductwork as well as a new central facility plant that adds new chillers, cooling towers, and boilers.
