New Eden Medical Center
IMEG provided structural design services for Sutter Health’s new 130-bed acute care hospital facility, the first in the industry to use an 11-party integrated project delivery contract. The ground-up hospital was delivered ahead of schedule and at the $320 million set target cost. The project is one of the first Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) hospital projects in California and was awarded the FIATECH CETI Award in the Scenario Based Project category at the 20098 National BIM Conference.
The team designed and delivered a facility that offers the highest standards of healthcare delivery and operational efficiency within an accelerated schedule and budget. IMEG utilized lean design and construction project management methods enabled by emerging 3D virtual design and assembly technologies to plan, design, coordinate, detail, fabricate, and pre-assemble the various facility components. Value Stream Mapping was used to visually show the workflow processes and look for ways to streamline them to deliver value.
