CBH, Patient Bed Tower and Campus Expansion

Baptist Health Lexington

Project Description: This project was a multi-faceted expansion of Baptist Health Lexington’s Nicholasville Road campus. The centerpiece is a seven-story, 450,000 sq. ft. patient bed tower, which houses private patient rooms as well as oncology, ICU, women’s services and neonatology. Other elements included more than 400,000 sq. ft. of parking, a 43,500 sq. ft. facility for dining/dietary/receiving needs, a 3,500 sq. ft. central utility plant and a 2,000 sq. ft. cath lab addition. Because the project’s impact on existing hospital services was so significant, scheduling and phasing were of maximum importance to avoid disruption of patient care.
Firm Role: As construction manager at risk, Congleton-Hacker provided preconstruction phase services involving value engineering, preliminary cost estimating, constructability analysis and scheduling. The project also includes services and delivery concepts not typically provided in standard CM at risk contracts, such as target value estimating. In addition, the project used design assist partners on key elements of the project to facilitate best value construction and maintain the target value.
