6 Medical Construction & Design | September/October 2014 Project News Petra Integrated Construction Strategies, a subsidiary of The Innovation Institute, has completed the design and construction of The Herman Family Pavilion on the campus of Queen of the Valley Medical Center, Napa, California. Driven by California's seismic mandate, the project team developed a 72,000-square- foot, LEED Gold certifi ed tower. The pavilion features six operating rooms, including a hybrid operating room. Natural light is a prominent theme through- out the facility. Large bay windows at the ends of corridors allow for sunlight and serve to frame scenes from the outdoors. Clerestory windows in the 20-bay intensive care unit and the pre- and post-operative surgical bays capture natural light and views of the surrounding Napa Valley landscape. A signifi cant donor presence, including an $11-million gift from the Herman Fam- ily, gave way to considerable artwork and landscape efforts. A $1-million donation from Kenzo Tsujimoto, by way of illustration, has fostered the creation of an expansive outdoor healing garden. of emergency services to 10,000 square feet. The expansion was constructed in two phases; Bat- ten and Shaw Inc. served as the general contractor. The expanded department has 10 exam/treatment rooms and two trauma rooms located around an enlarged central nurse station, improving visibility and access to each patient room. The exam rooms are organized around the concept of effi cient staff use and reduction of visual clutter by creating custom millwork to cover the headwall when not in use. Two of the exam rooms can also be used as psychiatric hold- ing rooms. The exam rooms are designed to allow registration to be completed at the bedside. In addition to the main emergency treatment area, there is a fast- track zone with triage space and two exam rooms, a new bereave- ment and consult room for family use and greatly improved staff and support spaces. In brief Hill & Wilkinson has begun construction of a new 44,300-square- foot outpatient clinic in South Dallas, Texas. The project, which represents a public-private venture between Parkland Health & Hospital System and Frazier Revitalization Inc. , will serve geriatric and behavioral health patients, including adults and children. Designed by BOKA Powell, it is scheduled for occupancy by the fi rst quarter of 2015. Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center , a 617-bed acute care and teaching hospital in Hartford, Connecticut, has awarded a contract to utiliVisor for energy monitoring services. utiliVisor will provide continuous energy oversight for the hospital's central energy plant. The fi rm will also seek approximately $75,000 in incentives from the Connecticut Energy Effi ciency Fund on behalf of the hospital. A groundbreaking ceremony was recently held for a $9.8-million addition at Wekiva Springs Center in Jacksonville, Florida. The 20,000-square-foot expansion, being built by Brasfi eld & Gorrie and designed by Harvard Jolly Architecture , will add 60 patient beds to the behavioral health facility and also includes a new 5,000-square-foot outpatient facility, dining renovation and site upgrades. It will be complete in early 2015. The new Bruno Cancer Center at St. Vincent's Birmingham located in Birmingham, Alabama, was recently completed by Brasfi eld & Gorrie (contractor) and Kahn South (architect). The facility will house the latest in radiation technology, which enables several radiotherapy treatment options with pinpoint accuracy and precision. JE Dunn Construction Company has been selected as the general contractor for a new fi ve-story patient and surgical tower project at Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater, Florida. The project is part of a four-year, $200-million campus transformation program. The project will comprise approximately 230,000 square feet of new construction and 154,400 square feet of renovations.
