MercyOne Clinton Emergency Department Renovation
14,000SF, June 2021 – December 2022
MercyOne Clinton selected Graham Construction to renovate and add on to their existing emergency department for a total project size of 14,000 square foot. This project has multiple phases to update the existing ambulance garage and emergency department all while working alongside the active emergency department. Graham had to constantly work with the client to ensure patient and staff safety. We worked through multiple pricing exercises for value engineering to achieve the design intent without sacrificing the functionality.
With the complexity of working in an active emergency department, Graham, the design team, and client had to work closely to ensure clear and concise communication was happening at all times. During the project start up, multiple weekly meetings were held in addition to daily correspondence to review RFI’s, drawing changes, value engineering, and constructability. Graham also held multiple walk-throughs with not only the design team, but with the end users to ensure that the clients needs were met; taking their space from concept to creation.
Our trade partners played a crucial role ensuring that the emergency department could stay active and could operate safely. Seven enabling phases took place to update the MEP services to the emergency department prior to the start of the main project, which is no easy feat. These seven phases consisted of numerous overnight shifts, and coordinated shutdowns between the hospital, Graham, and our trades. This was achieved by careful planning, while keeping all parties informed and involved throughout the process.
