This project is a 19,000 sf addition with six new operating rooms, two future operating rooms, a sterile processing department, patient bays and canopy. It also includes a 22,500 sf renovation to the existing Outpatient Surgery Center, expanding staff areas to accommodate additional staff.


  • The project was completed while the surgery center remained active and operated at full capacity throughout construction.
  • The project team built temporary staff lockers rooms and lounges in the waiting room area to separate staff areas from construction.
  • Testing and balancing the sterile areas was a challenge as the building was designed with one Air Handling Unit to feed both of the sterile and on-sterile areas. Messer was able to balance the two spaces and meet pressure requirements.
  • The project start date was delayed one month. Messer used flowing scheduling and 3D scans for utility coordination to expedite the schedule and meet the original completion date.
