University of Washington Medical Center Family Waiting & Admitting

Provided Progressive Design-Build services for electrical design and construction of the UWMC Family Waiting and Admitting Space project. Provided expanded waiting space for Radiology, created an admitting/consult function to support Surgical Services and Cardiac Procedures, and relocate Pathology Administrative offices. The area of work is comprised of 8,271-sf on the second floor of the UWMC and is currently occupied by existing waiting, clinical, office, and lab functions. The space is located at the intersection of four separate building additions which interface with four separate building infrastructure systems. The project included selective renovation of space in a multiphase delivery which involved moving the existing program functions in order to create space for the expanded waiting and admitting program. The UWMC’s first Progressive Design-Build project, it featured two waiting rooms with custom reception desks and new ADA restrooms. Located at the confluence of four separate building structures with independent MEP systems, accurate site discovery/investigations was critical. Corridor realignment resulted in the relocation of three electrical panels, and new fire-rated walls to redefine smoke control zones.
