Boyle Construction Management - "Built Better"


Healthcare Construction Management

Safety, Schedule, Budget

Construction in a healthcare facility differs from working in any other environment. Hazards from dust, noise, chemicals, vibrations, contaminated air and water increase risks to patients, visitors and staff.

Downtime during construction is expensive. Any kind of renovation cuts down on capacity, and empty beds earn no revenue. In an industry whose margins are already stressed by increasing costs, both safety and efficiency in construction are crucial.

Boyle Construction brings deep experience to this specialized and technically challenging field. Using careful preconstruction planning, critical phasing, close collaboration and clear communication, we will keep your project on schedule while your facility continues to operate safely.

Value Engineering Plus

Our architectural background and emphasis on value engineering also work to your advantage. Often simple revisions can reap great savings. At every turn we explore opportunities to improve functionality, add value, and reduce costs.

Depth of Healthcare Experience

Our experienced project managers and superintendents are well-versed in compliance issues, pre-construction risk assessment (PCRA), coordination of interim life safety measures (ILSM) plans and infection control risk assessment (ICRA) procedures. The entire Boyle team understands the constraints of sensitive hospital environments and the impact of construction on adjacent neighbors and offices.


Construction success is built on good communication. Our clients are encouraged to speak directly to our principals, Sean Boyle and Ken Duerholz, about any questions or concerns. Both men visit each jobsite regularly and attend weekly progress meetings. A full-time project superintendent oversees each project during all working hours, and key personnel are in constant communication.

When your project is complete, we take great care in transferring it from the design and construction team to your operations and maintenance team.

Boyle Certification

Ken Duerholz, AIA, Vice-President of Boyle Construction, holds the Certified Healthcare Constructor (CHC) certification which demonstrates his understanding of the critical issues of patient safety, privacy, and risk assessment, and the
latest compliance issues in healthcare construction.
