58 Medical Construction & Design | J U LY/AUGUST 2018 | MCDM AG.COM applications, case studies & best practices s Products The Cleveland Clinic has com- pleted its most signifi cant expansion proj- ect with the Sydell & Arnold Miller Family Pavilion and the Glickman Tower. The 1.3-mil- lion-square-foot pavilion and tower, a $504-million project, consolidates healthcare units that were spread throughout the campus in Cleveland, Ohio. The pavilion, housing the Heart & Vascular Institute, one of the largest cardiovas- cular facilities in the nation, consolidates all of the clinic's cardiac functions. The facility features a multi-story lobby, 278 patient rooms and includes 110 ICU beds and 12 VIP suites, 16 operating rooms, 155 physi- cians' offi ces and a diagnostic testing wing. Adjoining the Miller Pavilion, the Glickman Tower is the home of the Urological & Kidney Institute, the largest and fastest growing surgical center on the campus. The tow- er includes a conference room with telemedicine and satellite video and imaging capabilities, a health resource center, 74 exam rooms, 21 dialysis rooms with city views and 20 proce- dure rooms, of which four are oversized to provide space for large medical teams. After the Miller Pavilion be- gan construction, Bard, Rao + Athanas Consulting Engineers, the engineers of record for the project, were awarded the Glickman Tower project. There was one stipulation: the Glickman Tower had to be completed on the exact same day as the Miller Pavilion. "It was defi nitely a chal- lenge," says Grant Anderson, principal of BR+A. "We had to demolish a building adjacent to the new construction and com- plete design and construction of the Glickman Tower simul- taneously with the construc- tion of the Miller Pavilion." Given the time constraint, BR+A needed faucets that were dependable and reliable. When it came to selecting the faucets to install throughout both facilities, the only faucet manufacturer considered was Chicago Faucets, according to Anderson. "Chicago Faucets is typically our healthcare base-of-design product," says Anderson. "They have an excellent selection of healthcare-related options, and it's not just that. It's a well- established company. Many hospitals throughout the U.S. utilize Chicago Faucets because their products are easy to main- tain and spare parts are avail- able when you need them." From the VIP area, where the project required faucets with a high-end fi nish, to back- of-the-house areas, such as the cleaning closets where strong, durable faucets were needed, approximately 1,000 Chicago Faucets 786 and 985 models were installed. The 786 concealed under-mount faucets feature a one-piece, cast brass body that delivers unsurpassed durabil- ity and strength. Fewer parts and more pre-assembled com- ponents save time for quicker installation. A retrofi ttable restricted-swing spout option keeps the water off the deck and in the sink. All faucets meet the widest range of ap- plications with a fully threaded valve body that adjusts to almost any deck thickness. Adjustable-center models off er additional fl exibility. The faucets all use the same interchangeable handles, spouts, outlets and cartridges for maximum compatibility and versatility. "The parts are readily inter- changeable. One of the things I like about Chicago Faucets is, for example, if the owner wants a gooseneck that's wider — that protrudes farther away from the deck plate — it's readily ac- cessible and easily matches the base," Anderson explains. Chicago Faucets 985 turrets with single-inlet cold water faucets have the same durabil- ity and fl exibility as the 786 models. Other features of the 985 include the 5¼-inch rigid/ swing gooseneck spout, full fl ow nozzle, 2½-inch cross handle and a slow compression operat- ing cartridge with a 20-125 psi- rated operating pressure. "It's a good, long-lasting fi x- ture," says Anderson. "I've been using Chicago Faucets products for 30 years now. They stand by their product, and they actively look at improving the product. It's a great faucet." Visit Note: All references to the Cleveland Clinic and related facilities are used with permission.
