As part of the hospital’s Institutional Master Plan, the scope of this complex project remedies operational inefficiencies for BMC and provides an enhanced, streamlined patient experience.
Suffolk managed extensive renovations covering 240,000 square feet of the existing Menino Pavilion and Moakley Cancer Center, construction of a 110,000 square-foot infill addition to house specialty healthcare services, as well as tie-ins to the existing medical center.
The project was delivered under a true, Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) arrangement and is distinguished by being the first of its kind in Boston. The IPD process has included lean practices such as co-location, target value design, and pull-planning throughout preconstruction.
During construction, collaboration was critical to navigating key issues such as the construction of a two-story addition above active ambulance bays, working within a constrained, zero-lot-line site, and protecting BMC’s operability throughout all phases of construction.
The main project scope included eight new operating rooms, three EP labs, four cath labs, eight x-ray rooms, two MRIs, three CTs, 10 ultrasound rooms, 86 emergency department beds and 180 new or renovated patient beds.
Menino additions and renovations included remediation and demolition of a portion of the Dowling Building and the installation of a 160-foot pedestrian bridge to replace the existing MEP tube over Albany Street.
Construction occurred over Boston’s busiest emergency department and the hospital’s existing loading dock and adjacent active operating rooms, maternity suite, and pediatric and inpatient units. All departments remained fully operational throughout construction.
