Challenged with expanding the existing surgery center, BSA drew upon its extensive remodel experience while keeping a facility fully operational. The initial plan was to expand the existing surgery center into an adjoining tenant space that was vacated.
However, after phase 1 of the project was completed, it became clear to the owner that the existing space looked dated.
The main strategy was to plan properly so that the vacated tenant space could accommodate all the spaces that needed to be relocated so that the new ORs could
be expanded. The project was planned as two phases with critical spaces that must be contiguous with the surgery areas arranged to connect and function properly at the end of Phase 1.
The solution involved bringing in a contractor during design to assist in planning how the construction could be done and how to coordinate the tie-ins and system renovations without requiring the center to be closed except over weekends.
