We’ve made a great deal of progress on the construction of the new hospital and the interior finishing. Here’s a closer look at some of the progress this past week.

This week’s photos highlight the interior work, including paint, tile, casework and other architectural features. The warm colors of the interior walls are carried over to the rooftop gardens to create a calm and healing environment for patients.

Wet Paint

Painters are working on most floors for the finishing touches on the warm hues of the walls in patient care areas.

 

CT Room

The CT Scan room has a unique look with accent lighting that runs the color spectrum.

The crews are taking a little extra time off to share the holidays with family, but that hasn’t stopped us from admiring the tremendous progress on the new medical center and adjacent medical office building. Here’s a closer look at one of the pedestrian bridges linking the two buildings, soon to be fully connected.

While the new hospital building looks virtually complete from the exterior, the steel erection for the medical office building continues. This week, the crew will hold their “topping off” ceremony, when they complete the highest point in the steel frame. This is an exciting milestone and shows how far the project has come along in a short time. The building will be home to many of the hospital’s administrative services, as well as an urgent care center and physician offices.

Here’s a closer look at construction of the pedestrian bridge linking the medical office building to the new hospital:

Meanwhile, the interior work continues in the new hospital building. We previously posted photos of the main lobby ceiling framework. Here is the progress since then, showing the build out of the lobby space today.

 

Work also continues on the grounds and around the campus. Part of the community improvements made as part of this construction project has been to install much-needed sidewalks along the site on Stanton Avenue. The sidewalk is now installed and landscaping will soon begin, making the area not only safer, but much more appealing for our neighbors.

Hospital construction is among the most complex and challenging type of construction today. Fortunately, one of the best tools that exists to coordinate the complex needs of many users is right at our fingertips.  The Eden Medical Center hospital replacement project team uses Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology to keep the project not just ahead of schedule, but also ahead of the industry. With BIM, all of the trades (for example, plumbing, electrical, mechanical, heating and ventilation) work on the 3D modeling system in a collaborative effort to “virtually build” the project and work out any issues early, before work begins on the construction site.

In addition, the team uses laser scanners to gather the precise data of construction site terrain and construction in progress. This type of laser scanning is the method that provides highly accurate location information to create equally accurate 3D models.

The team can then take the actual construction and overlay our BIM image of the same area to identify precise areas of construction. For example, the plumbing contractor can take the image and easily identify plumbing as it actually exists within the building.

This simplified explanation can hardly convey the breadth and depth of the modeling technology being used throughout the project. In the coming weeks, we’ll spend more time interviewing the construction team and sharing how this industry-changing program has benefited the aproject at Eden.
