New Construction: Intermountain Health Utah Valley Hospital, Provo, Utah

Project team: HDR, Jacobsen Construction, Spectrum Engineers, Reaveley Engineers

Utah Valley Hospital is a Level II Trauma Center. The UVH Campus replacement and expansion was a major multiphase campus construction project that ultimately replaced a majority of the campus’ aging building space and transformed the campus identity. Seventeen construction document packages were issued in a fast-track schedule to overcome phasing challenges, minimize disruption of ongoing operations and seamlessly interconnect new and existing facilities.

Renovation: Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, Tennessee

Project team: Blair + Mui Dowd Architects, Turner Construction Company, Structural Design Group, Smith Seckman Reid, Inc.

The Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt University Medical Center is middle Tennessee’s only freestanding children’s hospital and the region’s only comprehensive, nonprofit pediatric healthcare provider. VUMC wanted to advance the size and scope of the hospital’s pediatric healthcare programs to meet the community’s needs. The result is a 250,000-square-foot vertical expansion and renovation of the children’s hospital.

Infrastructure: Providence Regional Medical Center-Everett, Everett, Virginia

Project team: Stantec, VECA Electric & Technologies, PRMCE (facilities department and construction project manager)

At Providence Regional Medical Center-Everett’s Colby campus, the project team worked hand-in-hand to upgrade the A-wing switchboard. The switchboard was installed in the 1960s and located in a small, one-entrance room. Replacing the switchboard in an electrical room with limited space, while keeping the power flowing to critical equipment throughout the hospital, was a tall order, but this multidisciplinary team made it happen.
