INTENSIVE CARE UNIT RENOVATION
Eisenhower Army Medical Center
Ft. Gordon, Georgia
The Intensive Care Unit renovation work included all architectural, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, fire protection / suppression, and life safety, complying with all applicable code requirements to support a consolidated ICU on the 5th floor, to service both medical and surgical ICU patients. The design was based on guide-plate information set forth in the Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) and other applicable codes/standards and included the development of PFD (Program for Design), Project Rooms Report, and a full equipment planning list. The intent was to remove all existing interior walls facing the nursing station to accommodate new sliding glass doors and rehabilitate the entire space to provide a state-of-the-art ICU as the existing space requirements would allow. Removal of remaining ICU patient room walls to allow the re-routing of the existing medical gas and vacuum system was necessary to accommodate UFC requirements as much as possible considering the existing area constraints. The project was split into three phases, increasing the size of the ICU to include 12 beds on two floors.
Sherlock Smith and Adams, Inc. provided the Architectural, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Communications, Civil and Fire Protection / Life Safety Engineering, and Medical Gases design services.
