Sioux Center Community Hospital relocated their hospital facility, which required the completion of several smaller projects in conjunction with the overall hospital construction project.
The new hospital facility design included City utility connections, accounting for the increased traffic on the local road system, mass excavation to accommodate the side hill construction and walk-out basement, a storm water study to analyze the adjacent natural drainage creek, a new helipad facility, a decorative garden overlooking the retention pond, as well as a mobile MRI parking bay. The facility opened in the spring of 2014.
Sanford Hospitals of Sioux Falls, SD built a new Luverne hospital, which required the completion of several smaller projects.
A sanitary sewer study was performed to review the capacity of the sanitary sewer interceptor that served the north end of Luverne. It was determined the interceptor sewers needed to be upsized to 18” and 15” sewer mains. This required removing and replacing 15 blocks of sanitary sewer main, curb and gutter and asphalt paving. New service lines were installed for homes along the project.
Increased traffic and turning movements off/on to US Highway 75 at the intersection of 131st Street was expected at the north end of Luverne. The Minnesota Department of Transportation required lowering the elevation of the intersection approximately 4’ to improve the site distance. Highway 75 was widened to add turn lanes for the increase hospital traffic. The Rock County Highway Department retained DGR to provide the design, plan preparation and construction staking for the project.
Hendricks Community Hospital added to their existing facility, which required the completion of several smaller projects in conjunction with the overall construction project.
The hospital facility addition design included City utility connections, accounting for the increased traffic on the local road system, excavation to accommodate the new addition, a storm water study to mitigate the additional impervious area created, a new heliport facility, as well as a mobile MRI parking bay.
The true test of the project was to combine all of these design challenges with a building design team and ownership group to coordinate and communicate the expectations and responsibilities for all the project stakeholders. All of these factors were navigated to culminate in an anticipated facility opening date of fall of 2015 for the Hendricks community.
