Case Study Prefab Solution SSM Health Agnesian HealthCare Construction
Case Study: Headwall and Footwall Prefabrication
SSM Health Agnesian HealthCare
In the Greater Fond du Lac area, SSM Health Agnesian HealthCare embarked on several projects to enhance patient experience with private patient rooms. When designing the private patient rooms, the owner wanted to mirror each room to create a consistent look, feel and functionality when building at multiple locations.
To provide a designed head and footwall system that met the needs of the patient experience and the functionality for clinical care, the owner’s first thought was to purchase the head/footwall systems from a known healthcare product supplier. After evaluating various products' functionality and cost, the owner determined they did not precisely meet their expectations. The solution quickly transitioned to the thought of designing and manufacturing a product tailored to their needs at a more favorable cost!
The project architect worked with the owner to develop a concept to meet the owner’s goal of patient experience and clinical functionality. From there, C.D. Smith took charge to engage contracting partners that included millwork manufacture, plumbing and electric/systems trades, and information technology members to coordinate and pre-manufacture the systems. In coordination with the trade partners, the millwork manufacturer built the units that were delivered and set in place. The units were easily connected to the pre-installed infrastructure above to complete the install. This premanufactured product met the owner’s needs and also resulted in higher quality and savings to the owner. One project that consisted of 57 private patient rooms resulted in a project savings of $28,500!
SAVE MONEY. SAVE TIME. REDUCE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT.
When renovating a healthcare facility, the decision to use prefabricated components is an excellent way to sustainably source materials and save time and money while minimizing the disruption to your ongoing operations. We review opportunities to maximize prefabrication of all components, including headwall assemblies, MEP rough-ins, equipment racks, walls panels, and floor and roof assemblies.
