Building information modeling (BIM) was a key success factor in delivering a medical office building for a valued client.
New Medical Office Building Connects Hospital with Supplementary Services
Preconstruction and construction services for core and shell interior of 315,365 square-foot medical office building. The new Medical Office Building (MOB) connects the core hospital building and provides supplementary services, such as surgical centers and imaging, as well as office space to complement the new hospital.
As part of the core and shell building, the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems required for the specialty areas were coordinated up front. An additional tenant fit-out component of the MOB includes seven operating rooms, two endoscopy rooms, a stereotactic procedure room, prep and recovery rooms, waiting area, locker rooms and administration area.
The fit-out includes specialty areas such as a cardiac rehabilitation, antenatal testing, a metabolic center, ambulatory surgery, radiation oncology, high-risk pregnancy center, med spa and salon, sleep diagnostic center, and several other medical specialties.
BIM technology was utilized early on in order to ensure that each phase of construction was properly and accurately coordinated. Using BIM, we create a model along with the architect that can be used throughout the project life cycle for visualizations, logistics planning, constructability analysis, clash detection, improving speed and accuracy of estimates, optimizing construction sequence, and integration into a functional
facilities management tool.
