Our team continues to demonstrate our ability to ensure strict adherence to a complicated array of codes and regulations while working on multiple projects with multiple stakeholders at Kaiser Permanente’s Modesto location. Kaiser Permanente needed to complete two facility maintenance projects on their Modesto Medical Center campus, neither huge in scale, but they are big on HCAI compliance.
A Healthy Experience
The first task was an expansion of the current Emergency Department to accommodate seven new patient beds. Due diligence was needed to ensure that existing walls could handle increased loads, and that equipment specifications were obtained upfront to avoid delays and cost escalation. Seismic-anchorage of new medical equipment required careful vendor coordination to make it happen.
The second project was to reconfigure an existing campus building to increase desk space for Kaiser Permanente’s growing central utility staff. Again, working with a current structure always adds a degree of difficulty to not cause undue stress and pressure, in this case, to both the building and temporarily displaced staff.
Construction in the healthcare sector is always intense with many moving parts, so all teams need to be on the same page. We were fortunate to work side-by-side with HY Architects, Noll & Tam Architects, Lionakis Architects, and S+B Construction on these healthcare-focused projects.
