THE PROBLEM

How do you renovate three floors of an existing nursing tower and increase the patient room footprint by 30%, while the facility is still occupied and in use?

THE SOLUTION

SCMC is frequently at a full census and the small, oddly shaped patient rooms on the third and fourth floors were limiting their patient care goals. PKA worked with the team to devise a project to expand the tower by filling in the saw-tooth façade on the third and fourth floors. This project gives those patient rooms an average 30% increase in their floor plans. The project also completely renovates all three floors of nursing (3, 4, and 5) including all patient rooms, corridors, and support core space.

Lastly, there is added complexity with the requirement that this project be completed while still occupied. To accomplish this, PKA teamed with the owner and contractor to devise an eight-phase plan that will complete all construction activities by Spring 2017, while allowing the hospital to maintain patient care operations.
