Korte & Luitjohan Contractors, Inc. partnered with McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. to provide Construction Management services for the building of a new $63M hospital on a greenfield site. The project was completed using an aggressive 14-month schedule which required collaboration from the hospital, design, and construction teams. The construction team used Bluebeam document control for collaborative document management and mobile kiosks located in the field enabled all job site staff to have access to project information. Rapid changes were tracked and documented with the design team as they developed, and implemented in the field to minimize rework and improve overall project efficiency.
The new St. Joseph’s Hospital campus, which encompasses more than 125,000 square feet, includes a single-floor hospital, built with a steel frame, brick, stone and glass exterior, and a mansard roof over the patient wings. The hospital is connected to a new three-story medical office building, which includes about 40,000 square feet of leased space. All inpatient rooms are private with large windows and “family zones” to allow guests a comfortable space to visit or even sleep. The state-of-the-art facility includes a Wi-Fi Café positioned near the inpatient wing. Outdoor spaces, such as a Franciscan healing garden, have been designed to offer destinations for relaxation and personal reflection.
