8 Medical Construction & Design | M A RCH /A PR IL 2018 | MCDM AG.COM Projects completed & upcoming A four-year modernization project has been completed at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital, located in Barrington, Illinois. Mortenson Construction teamed with architect HOK under an Integrated Lean Project Delivery approach. The project added 230,000 square feet and renovated 150,000 square feet. Among the major improvements are four new inpatient units, including an expanded 18-bed medical intensive care unit and three medical/surgical units. All of the hospital's 176 inpatient rooms now are private, and all new inpatient rooms are equipped with smart room technology. Green roofs provide energy-conserving insulation and absorb rainwater. Work was phased into stages that required building temporary locations for some departments, while permanent spaces were created so the hospital could continue all of its operations and medical services throughout the project. Christus St. Vincent, in Santa Fe, New Mex- ico, recently welcomed the fi rst patients to the Frost Pavilion, its new wing with 36 private rooms. The two-story Frost Pavilion adds 63,000 square feet of space, includ- ing the medical/surgical bed fl oor and another bed fl oor reserved for future build- out, along with a double-height lobby with ancillary spaces that connects to the exist- ing nursing units and the outpatient lobby. A new front door to the existing hospital was created with a cantilevered entry canopy, and refl ects its high-desert context with a Santa Fe palette and the use of stucco and stone. The interiors extend the local references with warm colors and natural materials, including the beamed ceiling in the light-fi lled lobby. Views to the nearby mountains are available throughout the facility, waiting areas are open and airy and the walls are lined with 67 vibrant works by recognized New Mexican artists. The next phase of the project in- cludes the conversion of all adult patient rooms from semi-private to private in the four existing nursing units, which will be upgraded to match the interior fi nishes in the new building. The project is sched- uled for completion this year. The project team included EYP and McCarthy. IPD Approach Delivers Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital 4-Year Modernization Project New Children's Mental Health Facility 1 st LEED Behavioral Health Facility in Virginia VCU Health and Children's Hospital of Richmond at Virginia Commonwealth University recently held a ribbon- cutting ceremony for its new Virginia Treatment Center for Children. The building is the fi rst LEED-accredited children's behavioral health facility in Virginia. CannonDesign was the architect of the nature-themed facility, with project management by JLL and construction by Balfour Beatty. The facility is transformational for children's mental healthcare, bringing VTCC's services out of a 50-year- old institutional space and into a modern facility with an inspirational design that incorporates natural light, green space and unique safety features important to modern mental healthcare. Based on research and the unique profi le of the pediatric psychiatric patient, the facility design features a soothing aesthetic, warm and bright color palette and comforting, home-like furnishings. The two-story, 190,000-square- foot facility spans 4.5 acres on CHoR's Brook Road Campus and includes 32 private inpatient rooms with accommodations for a parent to spend the night; 20 outpatient consult rooms; occupational, recreation, art, music and play therapy; inpatient school programs; a gym and recreational areas; gardens and greenspace.
