Sutter Medical Center Castro Valley, USA

Integrated Project Delivery Team

Innovative healthcare project

Sutter Medical Center Castro Valley (SMCCV) is an innovative 130-bed replacement hospital currently under construction. Completion is scheduled for June 2014. The estimated maximum price set for this project is $320 million. This seven-story building is a composite steel and concrete framed structure. The structural design of this building is considerably more complex than usual due to the new seismic requirements set forth in California's legislation. This fast track project is scheduled to be delivered 30% faster than comparable healthcare projects in California.

BIM enables fast-track schedule

This schedule would not be possible without the use of BIM technologies and the innovative 11-party IPD (lntegrated Project Delivery) team. This team has been working together since 2008 to build a completely coordinated and constructable model that will eventually get passed onto the owner for facilities management use. Entire effort in exterior skin modeling from vendor shop drawings (2D) was to communicate the design in a 3D environment to convey issues back to the 2D detailers.
