The Med/Surg area has 25 patient rooms, three primary nursing stations, as well as classroom and training spaces. DPR also renovated the front entrance canopy, rebuilt the surrounding facade, and added a new Oxygen Park to the facility.
Above-ceiling coordination can be challenging in renovation spaces. To avoid costly rework, DPR laser scanned the existing spaces to generate an as-built document of existing steel and MEP systems. This enabled them to model the new work in the existing 5th Floor space. A large amount of work was performed above-ceiling in an active ICU and NICU.
DPR held weekly calls with all stakeholders, including facilities, nursing, epidemiology, and safety/security to communicate any outages and impacts to the facility and nursing staff. As a result of this coordination, there were no unplanned outage events.
