This $7.5 million expansion and renovation project included an 8,000 square foot addition, which was last updated in 1995, and completely renovated. Improvements will includes and additional (and larger) rooms available 24/7 with “family zones,” CarePath technology, Behavioral Health Safe Rooms, and a Meditation and Grieving Area. As a result of this project, SRMC is now able to provide improved patient and family experience, faster treatment for minor injuries and illnesses, and upgraded facilities for treatment of victims in the event of a mass casualty or hazardous catastrophe. This project was one of Touchstone CPM's first BIM (Building Information Technology) utilized projects.
Medical Office Building #4 is a four-story, 102,000 square foot facility. The foundation is of concrete footings and foundation walls. The forty-plus foot high facility is made of a steel shell and concrete over metal deck floor system. The shell of the building is composed of metal studs overlaid with EIFS. Complimenting the EIFS System is an extensive amount of ribbon windows and curtain wall system. The building includes a laboratory, dialysis center, internal medicine and development of numerous physician suites. The shell construction of this building project was extensively overlapped and coupled with additional tenant build-outs. This facility also connects to the existing Medical Office Building #3, with a two-story connector. This connection required modifications to existing tenant suites within the MOB #3 facility.
The new dialysis center is a 12,000 square foot build-out into a medical office building. The patient care area is the largest space consisting of four exam rooms and 22 dialysis bays. Each dialysis bay area is equipped with its own easy access utilities. Built-in television systems for patient viewing were installed in the sofit area surrounding the nurses' station. Support spaces include a waiting area, reception, office space and conference area.
The St. Rita's Medical Office Building #3 facility is a beautifully designed 4-level structure, constructed of structural steel. The foundation is made of concrete spread footings, which required extensive site development. The floors are concrete over metal decking. The roof is made of steel joists and metal decking. The building envelope bears an EIFS (Exterior Insulation Finishing System) and curtain wall exterior. The entire facility consists of approximately 100,000 square feet which also includes a connecting walkway to an existing adjacent medical building and another to the parking garage. This project also included the process of leasing out tenant spaces and working closely with doctors. This project was built and designed in two phases. First, the shell was constructed, then the interior work followed. This project was constructed simultaneously with the adjacent parking garage facility as well as both sky-walk structures. As a whole, this project required extensive coordination among all trades and project stakeholders.
