PJ Dick provided General Construction services for the seven-story, 200,000 sf Patient Pavilion, which is home to a new cancer center, emergency department, surgical services, and inpatient floors. This tower consists of a flagship Cancer Center utilizing the latest in patient treatment and care for both radiation and medical oncology, an emergency department expansion, surgery expansion for inpatient and outpatient surgery, PACU, ICU and three floors of med/surg beds. The project included upgrades to the Central Plant including a 30,000 sf expansion with a 4.5 MW emergency generator plant, and greatly improved boiler and chiller capacity.


Case Study: Value Engineering

Although this was a lump sum bid General Contractor project, PJ Dick performed an extensive Value Engineering Post-Bid exercise in addition to a number of planning sessions to work with the owner on reducing the overall cost. We identified $1.5 million in MEP and curtainwall savings and $500,000 through thorough investigation of each subcontract. During preconstruction, the project manager and superintendent developed a multi-phased plan to keep the hospital operational at all times.
