addition and renovation project at Floyd Memorial Hospital highlights
our expertise in developing a creative design solution for a complex
project. A new image was created for the hospital within the demands of
a diverse program, established budget and aggressive construction
schedule. The new addition includes a new Heart and Vascular Center;
Emergency Department; Laboratory; Intensive Cardiovascular and
Transitional Care Units; Women’s Center; Entrance Lobby; Gift Shop; and
expansion of the existing Surgical Department to include cardiac
surgery, orthopedic surgery and neurosurgery.
Artekna’s creative approach
resulted in a guaranteed maximum price from the Construction Manager
that was 1.5 million dollars below the estimated construction cost. In
order to meet a fast-track schedule, eight separate bid packages were
issued. Close coordination with the Owner, Construction Manager,
consultants, and local, state, and federal agencies was critical to
ensuring a seamless process.
