The Building Design and Construction (BD+C) magazine recently awarded the Memorial Hermann Texas Medical Center, Sarofim Pavilion and Parking Infrastructure Building project with the Silver Building
Team Award. BD+C bestows the team award to projects that produce state-of-the-art buildings through collaborative efforts between the Owner, design team, and construction manager. The judges evaluate the project's design/engineering/construction
quality and excellence, as well as how the project team collaborated to overcome obstacles to make the project succeed.
Vaughn served as the construction manager-at-risk on the project. The expansion minimized congestion in the existing facilities and provided additional Level 1 trauma services for the more than 40,000 patients who visit this hospital
each year. A collaborative effort by the Owner, architect, contractor, and engineer team, the hospital expansion was a project in which both the process and team culture manifested the same level of care, expertise, and rigor provided
to the hospital's patients.
The panel of judges were impressed with our master planning throughout the construction process and our focus on keeping stakeholders engaged from start to finish. We secured the win through our successful management of the complex
budget, schedule challenges, and project phasing; our teamwork with the design team, including our 'Breaking New Ground Room' which served as the project home base from master planning through construction; and the development
of the project site without disrupting the existing hospital's critical functions. Read BD+C's full article for more details.
