Creating 500 construction jobs and employing 441 full-time people, the WakeMed North Hospital provides a significant boost to the community’s economy.

In 2011, WakeMed broke ground on an expansion project of their North Healthplex creating the fifth hospital in Wake County – WakeMed North Hospital. The full-service hospital is a 248,800 sq. ft., 61-bed women’s hospital designed with the unique needs of women in mind. The hospital also continues to serve men and children through the facility’s existing emergency department and outpatient surgery, rehabilitation, imaging, lab and physicians services.

Kenseal was proud to supply specialty construction products to a loyal customer for this expansion project. Kenseal Sales Representative Becca Turbeville worked closely with SECO Architectural Systems’ moisture control and construction division. With the guidance of a Tremco Commercial Sealants and Waterproofing representative, Kenseal provided the below and above grade waterproofing, insulation and air and vapor barrier.

“Working with Kenseal on the WakeMed North project was a pleasure. I got together with Becca early on and let her know what I anticipated our material requirements to be and she made it happen,” said Tom Wilson, Division Manager Moisture Control, SECO Architectural Systems, Inc., “We worked together to give WakeMed a complete Tremco system above grade. This may have sealed the deal for SECO in getting this very important project. Throughout the project Becca kept up with our material needs and made sure Kenseal had what we needed in stock. I look forward to the next project that we can work together on. Kenseal is SECO’s preferred material supplier in North Carolina!”
