SITUATION:

BOND was chosen to provide preconstruction and construction management services for the 16,324 SF renovation on the eighth floor of the Farr Building. The project included custom-built head walls, patient lifts, nurses’ stations, medical prep rooms and a staff lounge.

CHALLENGES:

  • Operational observation unit
  • Large plumbing scope in occupied patient rooms and below dialysis unit
  • Significant variation in headwall designs due to existing conditions
  • Construction between occupied floors

SOLUTIONS:

  • Coordinated fire alarm logistics
  • Utilized laser scanning for millwork coordination of headwall services
  • Installed plumbing two rooms at a time to minimize disruption

RESULTS:

  • BIDMC Farr 8 now has additional inpatient rooms for cardiac surgery patients
  • Rework and modifications to headwalls eliminated expediting turnover
  • Issues constructing above occupied dialysis unit were eliminated
