The project also consists of a 32,000-sq-ft interior buildout for a new Diagnostic Imaging Department, which includes 17 procedure rooms. A lower level Diagnostic Imaging Department, an Emergency Department expansion, data center upgrades and an emergency power buildout are also included.

Building Information Modeling was used extensively on the project as a 3D coordination component for above-ceiling mechanical equipment.

This required the use of the model files from the individual trade subcontractors� design software in order to review the design for clash detection.

The subcontractors incorporating their work into the BIM model included concrete structure, mechanical ventilation, dydronic piping, medical gases, plumbing, electrical fire protection, unistrut support systems, architectural ceiling model, laser scan technology and structural steel.
