This project was an addition and a renovation of an existing, in operation hospital. Space constraints in the existing portion of the facility were design and construction challenges.
- Overflow Drain Pipe
- BIM conflict identification revealed a 175 feet run of overflow drain pipe was running through Operating Room ductwork on its way to daylight. Additionally, the slope requirements of the pipe placed the piping below the ceiling height of the programmed space by the time it reached the building exterior.
- The problem encompassed approximately 4,000 square feet of space and affected every trade within the layout.
- Chilled Water and Steam Piping
- BIM conflict identification revealed the Second-Floor chilled water mains and steam piping unable to follow the designed layout.
- Intended routing over mechanical rooms produced conflicts with system distribution infrastructure and routing above exterior patient rooms produced conflicts with structure.
