Haselden completed the new Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) on the Edwards, Colo., campus of Vail Valley Medical Center. The project consisted of four operating rooms and one room for clinical procedures and the addition of 21,000 square feet of new space. We also renovated another 5,000 square feet of space on the north side of the existing building’s first floor.
This complex project was completed in several phases to support the hospital’s continued operations, and work was conducted in off-hours when possible. Our careful planning kept construction as separate from the general public as possible to create a safe environment for visitors and construction crews. The phasing plan also ensured there was ample, on-site parking for patients and staff during construction.
Given the tight schedule, we worked closely with the local fire department and other authorities to make sure all occupants had egress from all levels at all times.
Haselden performed a constructability review for Vail Valley Medical Center and proposed modifications to the foundation that expedited phasing and reduced the overall construction schedule by one month. Through our creative and knowledgeable work with the owner and project architect, we were able to make a huge difference in the delivery of a project that was successful and cost-effective even before work got underway.
