- Completed on time
- Project completed under budget
MECHANICAL CONSTRUCTION SCOPE OF WORK
During an intense two-phase construction project, a new surgery addition was built while existing operating room facilities were kept in use. Once the new operating rooms became available, remodeling of the existing operating rooms began. The turnaround from old to new was completed within four days. During the entire construction period, this four-day period was the only time the hospital was without full surgery capability.
EXEMPLA ST. JOSEPH HOSPITAL FACILITY BACKGROUND
St. Joseph Hospital is owned and managed by Exempla Healthcare. Exempla Healthcare is a not-for-profit community-based organization sponsored by the LMC Community Foundation and the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System.
MECHANICAL CONSTRUCTION SERVICES OBJECTIVE
To maintain, provide construction services, and upgrade the hospital facilities, on an ongoing basis, in order to accommodate the medical needs of a growing community.
MECHANICAL CONSTRUCTION SOLUTIONS
Due to the tight schedule, Trautman & Shreve, Inc. took the lead in design/build services with development of 3-D CAD fully coordinated drawings. These diagrams included mechanical engineering schematics for structural, electrical, fire protection, HVAC retrofit, mechanical and plumbing systems. In doing so, Trautman & Shreve identified architectural, structural, and other discipline conflicts to coordinate proper preconstruction documentation prior to construction. This provided significant efficiencies in the field through a maximized fabrication process while eliminating the need for rework.
As a result of the outstanding performance on this mechanical construction project, Trautman & Shreve has continued to perform work as part of an ongoing renovation at St. Joseph Hospital.
