Below are examples of Bob’s past engineering projects that stuck out to JPT.
The 71,500 SF women’s center expansion at the Medical Center of Arlington was the first phase of the hospital’s $70 million expansion project. Part of a three-year development plan, the expansion includes a new main entrance and a three-story women’s center and birthing services tower. The center features a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and all-private birthing rooms. The tower expansion project, based on a platform that supports the long-term addition of extended women’s services, will affect 175,000 SF and add 69 new private rooms.
This project began with master planning for a new CCRC/Life Plan Community on a 50-acre site. The recently completed Phase 1 included 205 apartments, 20 assisted living residences, 12 skilled nursing beds and common spaces within six connected buildings. The first phase also included 24 single and six duplex villas, a spa/beauty shop, fitness center and physical therapy suite.
This project consisted of a 78,500 SF building with a new central plant, three-story north wing addition, 42,600 SF single-story south wing addition and the renovation of 42,000 SF of the existing hospital facilities. Site upgrades included the renovation of existing and new parking areas, site lighting, site utilities and landscaping.
The three-story north wing addition and existing facilities renovations include new and/or expanded patient rooms (41 new beds), ICU (14 beds), PCU (10 beds), post-op (9 beds), pre-op (12 beds), endoscopy/ cytoscopy, central sterile, medical records, lab/morgue, respiratory therapy, emergency department and E.R. lobby, pharmacy, radiology (new CATH lab), kitchen, and cafeteria. The one-story south wing addition includes covered patient drop off/main entrance, business oﬃces, patient admitting/discharge, chapel, gift shop, conference rooms, and acute rehab center.
This project consisted of a 122,600 SF four-story South Wing addition, renovation of 15,000 SF of existing hospital facility, Central Plant, and site utility and parking upgrades including a new Emergency Room ambulance drop off area. Renovations included 15,000 SF emergency department renovation and expansion, endoscopy, PACU, and OR locker rooms. The four-story addition included a 26,100 SF basement for a new pharmacy, lab, conference rooms, support services, and storage; a 25,200 SF first floor with a new and expanded emergency department, imaging center, radiographic/ ﬂuoroscopic, CT, MRI, and new main lobby; a 23,100 SF second ﬂoor with new CATH lab, central sterile, inpatient and outpatient surgery, and four new operating rooms. The third and fourth ﬂoors added 48,100 SF for future patient room build-out.
The central plant expansion included three new 300-BPH (10,043 MBH) dual fuel low pressure steam boilers, associated steam boiler water feed and chemical treatment systems, underground steam distribution piping and associated condensate return pumps, new chilled and heating hot water distribution piping to new rooftop air handlers, new medical gas systems for the hospital addition including oxygen, vacuum, medical air, and steam for central sterilization, new controls and system integration with existing hospital systems, and facility commissioning. All work was completed in a phased manner to eliminate any interruption of existing hospital services.
JPT is very excited to have Bob Haney working on Healthcare Industry and Alternative Treatment Industry projects with our team!
