This expansion project to the Central Washington Hospital added 193,000 square feet of space within the six-story tower. The project added 174 new private patient rooms and 126 parking spaces to the hospital’s existing campus. It has conference rooms, outpatient physical therapy, and cardiac rehabilitation and mechanical facilities on the ground level.
Level 1 includes the pharmacy, education services, and space for a future 22-bed medical-surgical unit. Level 2 is made up of a new nursery and labor and delivery rooms, level 3 is the new critical care, and the post-coronary care units, and levels 4 and level 5 have an additional 42 medical and surgical rooms on each floor.
The project also included an 8,000 square-foot central utility plant expansion that allows additional air-conditioning equipment, emergency generators, and heating equipment.
This project has an advanced building management system that improved energy efficiency by 5-10% over similar buildings with the use of recycled and reusable materials incorporated whenever possible.
We created an extensive preconstruction plan for utility reroutes and infection control for the demolition of an old hospital wing to make way for the replacement tower. The replacement tower was immediately adjacent to maternity and NICU, requiring extensive disruption management planning and mitigation.
