Skanska is providing construction management services for the 293,000-SF new eight-story patient tower and 74,055-SF of renovations to the existing facility. The scope also includes related site work to accommodate the new pavilion.
The eight-story patient tower will provide a new entry for the Children’s Hospital and will incorporate educational and family spaces. The pavilion also houses a pediatric emergency department located on the second level with its own entry for the patients. There will be a total of one hundred sixty (160) beds in the new pavilion although some of the beds will initially be built as shell space for future growth. Other services located in the new pavilion include pediatric surgical services, pediatric intensive care, pediatric acute care, hematology and oncology care, outpatient clinics, neonatal intensive care, a pharmacy, and diagnostic imaging services. The tower, which is designed to withstand a Category 5 hurricane, will provide parking on the first two levels and patient services on the remaining upper levels.
The renovations to the existing hospital will enable greater efficiency for both the children’s and adult hospitals. These renovations include: relocating the existing cath labs to the current second floor clinic space, consolidation of surgical services on the third floor including the build out of four (4) shelled operating rooms, a relocated and expanded MRI and pediatric sedation unit on the first floor, as well as a new public connection to the Children’s Pavilion.
Site improvements will feature a new multi-level parking structure, reconfiguration of site access roads and underground utilities, a new sloped parking area for direct access to the pediatric emergency department, additional surface parking and expansion of the existing central energy plant (CEP). The CEP expansion includes fuel generators and two new chiller units. The site work will be phased to minimize disruptions to the existing campus and ensure the continued operation of all services.
