This project features grand lobbies, a reflection pool, and doubles the Emergency Department capacity.
This project utilized JE Dunn’s collaborative project delivery (CPD) method, which resulted in a reduced schedule from 23 months to 17 months and 6% in overall cost savings before construction. Construction began per the scheduled start date in February of 2016, six months after the first CPD meeting. The GMP was finalized with four and a half months of critical path work in place with the use of early release trade packages. The project was completed nearly two months ahead of the scheduled 17-month duration. Nearly all of the construction contingency and allowances were returned as savings.
