Developing Hospital Floor Plans For Modern Healthcare

in Companies/News

Submitted by: Todd Imming, Chief Marketing Officer, The Korte Company

Designing a hospital is no easy task. Creating a safe, comfortable place for patients to heal and doctors and nurses to work requires a significant amount of strategic planning.

Modern healthcare facilities provide a wide range of services and play many different roles, all of which are consolidated within a single building or close-knit campus. Those include:

  • Inpatient and outpatient services, from simple procedures to long-term intensive care.
  • Diagnostic and treatment functions requiring labs, imaging spaces and operating rooms.
  • Administrative services like reception, registration, record keeping, accounting and HR.
  • Research and teaching services in case of a teaching hospital.
  • Operational functions like food service, housekeeping, supply management, security and grounds maintenance.

The hospital design process becomes quite complex when accounting for all these functions. Efficiency and utility are crucial when developing a hospital floor plan. Our healthcare Design-Build experts offer insight based on decades of experience building these facilities. With their expertise and guidance, your hospital floor plan development process will result in a facility that improves patient care and secures the financial success of your healthcare organization.

Hospital floor plan considerations

Hospital floor plan design must account for a facility’s balance of functions and space allocation over time. Healthcare leaders will benefit from the expertise of a Design-Build partner with vast experience building in this sector.

Understanding the Master Plan

Most hospitals or hospital systems have a Master Plan in place that guides the growth and evolution of the facility. There’s a long list of resources the Design-Builder must become familiar with, and this one is at the top.

 

Master Plans are a critical roadmap during the early stages of construction planning, guiding customers and their Design-Build partners toward the hospital floor plan that meets the facility’s needs—now and in the future. Consider how information in the Master Plan can help answer questions related to the development of a hospital floor plan, including:

  • Is the current construction project “standalone,” or is it one phase of a multi-phase program?
  • Is there sufficient available land to allow for the construction of a whole new building, or will this project be a renovation or expansion of an existing structure?
  • Do hospital leaders intend to expand existing services or introduce new ones in conjunction with new construction? And, what challenges or opportunities arise from that as the facility faces a potential rearrangement of existing floor plans?
  • How do hospital leaders believe their patient population will change over time? Will new construction be flexible enough to respond to this evolution?
  • What external factors like adjacent property development or public transportation options will impact the way the facility evolves?

Master Plans should take a comprehensive view of how healthcare facilities exist—and change—within the communities they serve. At The Korte Company, we’re experts at understanding Master Plans and designing healthcare facilities that achieve the goals stated within them.

But we go a step further, too. At The Korte Company, the job is the boss. And that means doing everything possible to add value to any project we’re working on. Sometimes, that means designs change. A key benefit of choosing Design-Build is that all project stakeholders are on the same page from the beginning. There’s no miscues or confusion, only collaboration and cooperation.

We also know that healthcare organizations want to get the most for their construction investment. We excel at finding cost savings on healthcare projects because it gives us the opportunity to work with customers to start tackling other Master Plan items sooner.

The right Design-Builder is more than just a construction company. It’s a partner for progress.

If your facility lacks a Master Plan, or that Master Plan doesn’t include capital improvements like new construction, we’ll help you develop one. Learn more about how we do that by reading about the construction program we helped develop for Anderson Hospital in Illinois.

Evidence-based hospital floor plan design

Hospital design has begun to mimic healthcare in its adoption of an evidence-based approach. Just as doctors and nurses adjust treatments based on the latest medical studies, hospital leaders and their construction partners understand that better-designed hospitals can improve patient outcomes, enhance site security, boost staff satisfaction, increase operational efficiency and reduce adverse environmental impacts.

The principle of healing architecture has arisen from research assessing how patient outcomes improve when certain design choices are made. Consider these findings:

  • An experiment conducted by neuropsychiatric providers in Italy found that patients suffering from bipolar disorder spent an average of four fewer days in the hospital when they were assigned east-facing rooms that captured morning sunlight.
  • After shadowing the staff of the neonatal intensive care unit in a Swedish hospital, an architect redesigned the space. After implementation, hospital stays for premature infants measurably shortened.
  • A study of aggressive patients showed that injection of sedatives was reduced by 70% for patients whose rooms featured posters depicting scenes of nature compared to those whose rooms’ walls were blank.

And, as the Association of American Medical Colleges discusses in this article, good things happen when design elements maximizing patient and family experiences are combined with floor plans that:

  • Let medical teams centralize their work to deliver care more efficiently.
  • Keep separate teams (like medical staff and custodial personnel) from getting in each other’s way.
  • Allow security teams and local law enforcement to more easily unify their response to emergencies (we expand on this idea in our discussion on enhancing school security through design).

The design principles we discussed above are passive measures proven to improve health outcomes. Opportunities to implement active measures exist, too. By that we mean making design decisions that directly affect the way hospital or healthcare facility staff deliver care. The key to developing improved floor plans is collaboration. For us, it means conducting extensive interviews with the doctors, nurses and other support staff who will use the facility daily.

We want these individuals in on the design process because they see floor plans differently. To them, floor plans are more than drawings. They represent the spaces these professionals depend on to deliver the best care possible to patients.

User input is more important than ever because most healthcare construction projects are renovations or expansions to existing sites. Experienced staff have the best sense of what will work best for patients.

In addition to seeking input from healthcare providers and other staff, round out your planning team with security team leaders and even local law enforcement and fire protection personnel. When it comes to building state-of-the-art healing spaces, no amount of expert input is too much.

Restoration St. Louis puts Chemical Building Under Contract, Plans Renovation

in Companies/News

Restoration St. Louis has entered into a Letter of Intent to acquire the 17-story Chemical Building, located at 721 Olive, for the purpose of renovating and restoring it to its previous grandeur as an extension of its newest neighbor, the Louis Sullivan-designed Hotel Saint Louis at 705 Olive.

The two buildings will be linked by a street-level pedestrian walkway and feature an additional 84 guest rooms, 72 luxury apartments, a ballroom, restaurant and a rooftop bar. Work is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2019. Hotel Saint Louis, which opened in December after an extensive $71 million renovation, is also owned and operated by Restoration St. Louis under the auspices of an Autograph Collection Hotels by Marriott – the first in St. Louis.

Company co-founders Amy and Amrit Gill, who previously attempted to purchase the Chemical Building in 2016, are purchasing the property from Morgan Communities in New York and will receive more than $17 million in historic preservation tax credits as part of the project. Working in association with BSI Constructors, Inc. and Checkmate Design, the building’s estimated $54 million renovation is expected to be completed in the fall of 2020.

The building, on the National Register of Historic Places, was originally designed by Boston native Henry Ives Cobb in 1896 and features an intricately designed red-hued exterior cornice of foliated patterns and trapezoid-shaped bay windows with spectacular views. Visible advertisements on some of the windows still showcase the names of the businesses that once occupied the premise at the turn of the century. Ornamental terra cotta graces its top two floors. Both the Chemical Building and the former Union Trust Building (1893), now Hotel Saint Louis, provide an impressive architectural contrast of design.

“With the development of the Chemical Building, we will be expanding the visibility and vitality of our region’s downtown footprint, increasing the fun factor one block at a time for both residents and visitors alike,” said Amy Gill. “These two buildings, architectural wonders made all the more special by the fact they are just a few feet apart, also represent the essence of our mission – restoring a vacant landscape and transforming it into a revitalized neighborhood that, as St. Louisans, we can all be proud of. ”

Restoration St. Louis, led by Amrit and Amy Gill, has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in the revitalization of architecturally significant buildings, neighborhoods and thriving communities throughout the country. The organization, formed in 2001, initiates real estate development programs and partnerships with both city-based and minority-owned businesses.

Western Specialty Contractors Provides “3 Keys to Doing Successful Property Inspections”

in Companies/News

If you are a building owner or manager and want to reduce facility maintenance costs, there are a lot of advantages to performing routine property inspections. To begin with, property inspections provide valuable information that makes the stressful maintenance decision-making process much easier and straightforward. Proper building inspections involve more than just walking around a property looking for potential issues. There are plenty of property inspections that don’t do much to help the facility manager or owner. However, there are a few, simple keys to doing successful property inspections that everyone should know:

1. Start with Standardized Methods

Successful inspection programs are built on a foundation of excellent standardized methods that can help improve consistency from inspection to inspection over time. That way, results from a current inspection can be reliably compared to results from past ones. Recommendations include:

– Taking several pictures of each component’s condition – don’t try to rely on notes from inspectors exclusively.

– Using a condition rating scale – keep ratings as simple as possible.

Sometimes facility managers are tempted to start doing inspections first, then work on figuring out how to record the data later. That method is a recipe for expensive mistakes and a less-than-successful inspection.

2. Instructions Matter

Successful inspections are leveraged by well-written guidelines. Starting with standardized methods will get building owners and managers a good way down the path toward a successful inspection, but the maintenance team will need further assistance, so providing them with written instructions to review can be beneficial. Even if an inspection is set up correctly, it only makes it harder to get the traction needed on an inspection if the staff isn’t quire sure what to do. Dumbing down the instructions and taking the guesswork out of the equation will go a long way toward ensuring a successful inspection.

3. Create Checklists (or know where to get them)

Successful inspections have rock-solid processes. For those who are new to exterior maintenance, creating checklists can be a fun and exciting way to improve their skills. But to do a great inspection, learning how to make excellent inspection checklists is recommended, or ask a contractor for assistance.

Building owners and managers can supply the vision and property knowledge, but the contractor brings their years of experience and expertise. For more information about performing successful property inspections, contact the Western Specialty Contractors branch location nearest you – http://www.westernspecialtycontractors.com/western-locations/.

Kadean Awarded Build-Out Of ‘Logisticscentre III’ At KCI Intermodal Businesscentre

in Companies/News

Kadean Construction has been awarded the interior build-out for developer Trammell Crow Company of a new 202,800 square foot building at KCI Intermodal BusinessCentre, a major distribution and logistics park adjacent to Kansas City International Airport in Kansas City, MO, the company announced today.

The new $11.5 million tilt-up building – known as LogisticsCentre III – is a modern, multi-tenant, front-load warehouse/distribution facility that incorporates sustainable design and construction features. The building has 31 docks, a 32-foot high ceiling, and is constructed with a structural steel frame, tilt-up concrete walls, and a seven-inch thick reinforced concrete floor.

“We finished construction of the shell building late last year, and will now be able to complete the interior, which includes office space, common areas, and utility requirements for the warehouse/distribution operations,” said Mike Eveler, president of St. Louis-based Kadean Construction.

LogisticsCentre III is located next to LogisticsCentre II, a 423,928-square foot manufacturing facility, and near LogisticsCentre IV, a 432,640-square foot distribution center, both of which also were constructed by Kadean, said Austin Christensen, Kadean vice president who is in charge of the company’s Kansas City operation.

Additionally, Kadean recently completed Phase 3 infrastructure in the park for Trammell Crow Company. The work entailed sewers, roadways and preparation for a building pad that will host a 542,640 square foot building. Construction on that building could begin this year, Christensen said.

Kadean specializes in pre-construction, design-build, construction management, and general contracting services at the regional and national level, and focuses on light industrial, commercial, senior living, and healthcare construction.

Since 2016, Kadean has completed over $37 million of construction work in the greater Kansas City area.

Christensen said Kadean’s construction work at the KCI Intermodal BusinessCentre – which to date totals 986,960 square feet of industrial buildings — is similar to its logistics construction work at Aviator Business Park in Hazelwood, MO, and the Lakeview Commerce Center in Edwardsville, IL, which total 1,321,000 square feet and 1,540,000 square feet, respectively.

By KERRY SMITH, EDITOR, ST. LOUIS CONSTRUCTION NEWS AND REVIEW MAGAZINE

The first renderings of what the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s future St. Louis headquarters will look like were made public April 9 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the NGA.

Renderings from the newly selected joint venture construction team of McCarthy HITT show the look of the Next NGA West campus, to be located on a 97-acre site in the St. Louis Place neighborhood at Jefferson and Cass avenues in north St. Louis.

Estimates by the Corps indicate that as many as 1,300 workers per day will be on site daily at the massive construction project’s peak in 2022. The Corps also estimates that approximately 5,000 construction jobs will be created during the 5-year overall project, which is scheduled to begin in early 2020. Main campus construction is expected to reach completion in 2023, with the entire project anticipated to wrap up in 2025.

McCarthy HITT was announced March 19 as the winning joint venture selected to build the agency’s new headquarters. McCarthy HITT’s contract of $711.7 million – part of approximately $1.7 billion in total – includes construction of the NGA’s main campus in St. Louis.

“McCarthy is pleased to have been selected, along with our partners (HITT, Black & Veatch Gensler JV and Akima, LLC) to build the NGA’s new state-of-the-art campus,” said Jeffery Boyer, vice president of operations for McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. and project executive for the McCarthy Hitt team. “As the largest federal investment project in St. Louis history, it is expected to have a tremendous regional impact in terms of expanding jobs, promoting economic development and strengthening our local community. Throughout the project we’ll be working closely with NGA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as well as many teams of trade partners, community organizations and others.”

Next NGA West is the largest federal investment in St. Louis history.
