Sustainability case study
$220 million, five-story, 425,000-SF, 192-bed expansion to the existing Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children (AIDHC) in Wilmington, Delaware. The Nemours Delaware Expansion Project includes a 108,000-SF, 188-car ground-level parking garage below the new addition. The first floor of the building will contain a new emergency department, atrium, and retail and dining facility. The second through fifth floors each contain two wings of 24 inpatient beds. The second floor contains 32 beds of critical care PICU beds and 16 beds of step-down and med-surg beds. The new building is connected to the existing facility with a three-story connecting link.

The project team set up a 40,000-SF prefabrication facility a few miles from the jobsite where they assembled bathroom pods, patient room headwalls, mechanical racks and nurse workstations. Building Information Modeling (BIM) and iPads running BIM 360 Field software ensured every detail was correct as the pieces came together to form the sizable expansion. This project also used VELA (digital on-site resource station) and bar coding elements on site for easier tracking.
