Construction in an extremely dense urban site in the middle of Chinatown to deliver the 100,000 square-foot, ground-up replacement hospital in an extremely dense urban environment alongside an occupied health care facility. In addition, coordinating to avoid interruption of a main thoroughfare. We faced an aggressive and compacted schedule due to culturally significant delivery dates within a fixed GMP.
A Design Assist Approach. Red Top coordinated with the MEP design teams to develop 5 increments, submitting each one to OSHPD as they were completed while simultaneously completing BIM coordination. This allowed us to develop a systematic construction schedule, a detailed budget, and a clear procurement, staging, and logistics plan. Called “the most logistically challenging ground-up hospital ever built,” not only did Chinese Hospital’s new high-quality Patient Tower get built, but it also got built on budget, on time, and with no recordable injuries.
