The project team has clocked 700,000 man-hours so far and anticipates reaching 800,000 upon completion, Gomez says. McCarthy's team has also recorded zero lost-time accidents and a 1.7 total project incident rate.

During preconstruction, virtual mock-ups were used for approval on spaces, helping to minimize changes by end-users, Gomez explains. The team also field-coordinated all of the temporary partitions that separated construction from the occupied spaces to ensure the safety of all involved, he adds.

During construction, the team utilized building information modeling to coordinate each floor before installations began. "Walls were scanned before wall cover to provide accurate as-builts of wall rough-ins, and BIM360 is being used" to resolve issues and create punch lists, Gomez adds. "The construction documents are being maintained with BlueBeam."

Rucksdashel says the McCarthy HKS team utilized several technologies to effectively design and construct the building. "The design-build team built a simple four-wall mock-up on a shell of the existing hospital and used World Viz virtual mock-ups of the operating rooms and main lobby to discuss room sizes, understand the space and make informed decisions," he says.

More than 800 medical gas outlets are being installed in the Pavilion, along with more than 22,500 linear ft of copper medical gas lines. McCarthy's team used about 175 tons of sheet metal material and roughly 1,620 tons of rebar, Gomez says.

The project also required more than 11,200 cu yd of concrete and more than 283,400 ft of electrical wiring. Nearly 10,000 cu yd of dirt were moved or removed as well.

"We've had nearly 1,800 inspections and are on track to break 2,000," Gomez adds. The project will add more than 500 doors to the MDA campus as well.

The work was divided into three phases: site, foundation and underground plumbing; core and shell; and interiors. "The first two phases are substantially finished. Interiors should be substantially complete by this fall," Gomez says. "We are currently working on finishes on multiple floors and beginning the McCarthy punch-list process." Work is now roughly 90% complete. The project is on time and on budget, Gomez says.

The project team has started the commissioning phase on the building, in which the new systems must be interfaced with the existing building, Sisolak says.

Substantial completion is scheduled for late September. Doors will open in November, surgical suites in February, and the entire Pavilion will be up and running sometime in April, she says.
