Ahuja Medical Center Phase I & II
University Hospitals | Cleveland , Ohio
Osborn Engineering was awarded the Civil, MEP, and Fire Protection engineering contract for Phase II of the Ahuja Medical Center.
Phase II was a total of 337,700 SF including the New Pavilion (225,490 SF), a new Sports Medicine Complex (81,645 SF), and renovations for expanded support spaces (30,600 SF).
The new pavilion includes a new emergency department with a designation of level II trauma, dedicated emergency department imaging, breast health center, new ambulatory surgery center, new universal pre/post suite, and a new mother-baby unit with a level III NICU.
The freestanding sports medicine building houses a 3-story field house/gym with over 10,000 SF of turf for sports rehab, dedicated rehab clinic for PT/OT, aqua therapy, and sports clinics with dedicated imaging services. The new men’s health program is located above the Sports Medicine Complex.
The existing building had several areas of renovation including a new central sterile processing (CSS), expanded support services including receiving, materials management, EVS, labs, morgue, IT and security. Clinical programs expanded in the existing building included HHVI department and reconfiguration of the endoscopy suite. Extensive site work was needed to add the additional parking and way-finding for these new services. The site has more than 1,075 new parking spaces and an expanded Central Energy Plant.
As the lighting designer, Osborn coordinated with the Architect and Designer on the lighting-critical areas. Our lighting designer performed extensive photometrics and lighting-accurate renderings to support the lighting design and to facilitate the design process.
Civil services also included a redesign of existing site utilities to accommodate the Phase II expansion. An existing dry retention basin was expanded and converted to a wet retention basin to provide stormwater management for the expansion as well as provide water quality treatment for the existing bio-retention areas that were eliminated in the phase II expansion.
Osborn Engineering performed Technology engineering on Phase I of the Ahuja Medical Center in 2010. For Phase I, Osborn engineered the technology systems for the 430,000 SF campus. This included voice/data, cable TV, nurse call, public address paging, intercom, access control, video surveillance, time clocks and audio visual.
