Children’s Hospital Colorado sought to provide comprehensive healthcare services to children residing the South Metro Denver to meet ever-growing demands. The new South Campus is a 182,000-square-foot facility providing both in-patient and out-patient care. The design of the building takes its aesthetic cues from their main campus in Aurora.
The South Campus facility includes: Inpatient Care, Outpatient Clinics, 24/7 Urgent Care with 22 exam rooms, Sports Medicine Program, Surgery Center with four operating rooms, Infusion Center, Laboratory Services, Imaging Services and Diagnostic Services. In addition, the facility features a family hospitality area, play areas for patients and siblings, a cafeteria/coffee shop and conference rooms.
To meet the fast-track schedule, the team adopted an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). To facilitate this process, all team members are working from a single, integrated Building Information Model (BIM) using cloud-based technology. This process enables the early procurement and fabrication of critical items including structural steel, curtain wall, mechanical and electrical systems, and fire detection and protection systems.
