Stamford Hospital Expansion
The design of the Stamford Hospital Expansion incorporates several key elements; service to and integration with surrounding communities, enhancing services to provide state-of-the art healthcare in a patient centered environment, and providing an open and welcoming facility conceived around three key words – Embrace, Care, and Heal.
The expansion consists of an 11-story building including an emergency department, surgery, heart and vascular program, a 24-bed ICU and support services in the lower four floors. The top seven floors include private patient beds, replacing a majority of existing beds on the campus. Significant site and infrastructure upgrades include a new central utility plant.
All members of the design team are committed to a multidiscipline collaboration design process using BIM platforms such as Revit Structure. Walter P Moore functions as the Project Coordination Administrator (PCA) by administering the project’s overall BIM collaboration review process. Using the Navisworks system, a multi-discipline virtual model is created which allows visualization and detection of interference between discipline components.
The project’s design included several sustainable strategies and is currently tracking toward LEED gold certification.
