Sarasota Memorial Hospital-Venice

New state-of-the-art acute care hospital campus designed to better align with the hospital’s mission to provide “a higher level of care.”

building a higher level of care

Gilbane is currently constructing a new 365,000 SF hospital situated on a 65-acre campus in Venice, Florida. The scope of work for this acute care hospital entails 110 private patient rooms, including 10 obstetric (LDRP) suites, 80 adult medical/surgical beds, and eight OR suites. The new hospital facility will also include 28 treatment rooms in the Emergency Care Center.

The site work infrastructure included public utilities, communications, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection and structural work for the development of the New Hospital Facility, elective medical and business services, and the required support services required for each designed and constructed to allow for expansion capabilities.

The new hospital facility also includes a 400-car parking deck, surface parking for approximately 1,050 vehicles, a 25,000 square-foot energy plant, and a 60,000 SF medical office building.

Client Value

Before the 65-acre hospital campus even broke ground, Gilbane was working closely with Sarasota Memorial Hospital’s leadership, executive team, Hammes and Flad Architects, to provide Master Planning Support for the new acute care hospital campus. Gilbane provided extensive cost modeling, estimating, phasing and cash flow projections/schedules, project estimate reconciliation, special cost reports, cost-benefit analyses, value management, contingency planning and master planning support.

During this master planning phase, Gilbane developed a cost model that supported four separate cost scenarios with a high and low range for each scenario. The cost models were developed from conceptual level design documents and provided information necessary for the hospital administration to provide direction on the overall project. The cost models were developed utilizing our proprietary CostAdvisor system and has proven historically accurate within 2%. The speed at which Gilbane can provide cost model data is part of an approach to our projects and allows the owner and design team to make timely decisions and move the project in the intended direction.
