Project Overview

The project involved build-out of shell space on the fourth floor to house 22 ICU patient rooms, two ICU isolation patient rooms, two nurse stations, a waiting room, offices, and support space. We built an elevator lobby around the existing elevator shaft and connected MEP and lighting systems to existing systems. We also extended AHU fan ductwork through the existing roof to the mechanical air handlers on the fifth-floor penthouse.

Unique Challenge

After we laser scanned the shell space, we discovered the plumbing tie-in points indicated in the as-built drawings were inaccurate, which forced us to open walls in occupied spaces to identify proper tie-in locations. We accessed each occupied ICU room on Level Three to tie in the Level Four plumbing drains. We met daily with the design team and Owner’s staff to update infection control and phasing plans for safely maintaining ICU operations while completing the tie-ins, resulting in no complaints or delays.
