GEi has extensive experience with MEP design for surgical suites, having completed multiple projects renovating or modernizing single operating rooms as well as providing complete Design-Build services for total renovation of a 10-room surgical suite. This project systematically renovated each operating room while retaining the sterile inner core and 9 operating rooms functional around the construction area at all times. We reconfigured the suite to allow creation of four larger rooms better suited to emerging technologies and specified a new rooftop air handling unit to provide laminar flow air distribution to these rooms. The entire electrical distribution system in the suite was replaced, again without significantly impacting surgical operations during construction. HVAC controls were modernized throughout the suite, and a new clean-steam humidification system was specified to serve the entire suite. GEi’s role as Design-Build Constructor for this project required us to provide close coordination with clinical personnel during construction in this highly sensitive area while also tracking and managing construction costs and coordinating work of all trades throughout the project.
