Pediatrics Relocation to R Building

Cleveland Clinic | Cleveland , Ohio
In conjunction with the leading architect, Osborn Engineering provided an infrastructure study of the MEP and Fire Protection systems serving the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors of Cleveland Clinic’s former Taussig Cancer Institute (R Building). The study was an 8-week effort including in-depth, multiple-space programming options, volume forecasting, equipment and furnishing assessment, infrastructure assessment, and development of concurrent budgets and schedules. This study matured into the actual Civil, Structural, MEP, and Fire Protection design for the renovation project. This project was completed using the Cleveland Clinic’s Owner Controlled Team Project Delivery method (OCTPD). OCTPD value proposition consisted of quality improvement, cost management, enhanced risk management, reduced delivery time, enhanced transparency and collaboration, greater opportunity for diversity, and expanded Cleveland Clinic’s brand.
The design project ultimately consisted of converting the existing building into the flagship for pediatric care. New space programs included Surgery, Bronchoscopy, Endoscopy, Phlebotomy, Radiology (X-Ray, Ultrasound), CTScan, USP-800 Pharmacy, Exam Rooms, and all ancillary spaces. Major infrastructure upgrades included a new emergency generator and distribution, cooling towers and rebuilt water-cooled chillers, redesign/rebuild of existing air-handlers, and a complete building-wide temperature controls upgrade.
Osborn provided the required comparative analysis and modeling periodically throughout each design phase to allow the owner, architects, doctors, nurses, and administration staff to make educated financial and operational decisions throughout the design process. This allowed for additional services to be added within budget, including the renovation of the building’s café and ‘siblings drop-off’ area.
