Completed in February of 2009, the new expansion consisted of 205,136-sq.-ft. six-story patient tower expansion on the existing Banner Health Del Webb Medical Center Campus. This tower houses a new, larger emergency department on the first floor, new invasive services including OR, PACU and ICU on the second floor, 36 med-surg beds on the third and fourth floors and shell space for future beds on the fifth and sixth floors. The project also included significant site work, a kitchen remodel and an expansion to the existing central plant.
Although this tower expansion was designed in 2D, DPR modeled all major components of the project's structural, mechanical and electrical systems in 3D to determine, review and prevent potential clash detection problems. Additionally, DPR modeled interior components of the building to allow the owner to virtually walk critical spaces and make adjustments to locations of medical equipment prior to construction in the field.
