Client: Hennepin County Medical Center
Project Size: 10,278 s.f.
Addition and renovation to HCMC’s hyperbaric suite. Project included driving piles to bedrock to provide a foundation system to house the 120,000-pound hyperbaric chamber, which sits atop an existing HCMC tunnel; construction of a structural steel and precast framework to hold the chamber; relocation of existing steam and chiller pipes; installation of medical gas piping and three deluge tanks above the chamber; and a custom gantry rigging system for lifting and sliding the new chamber into place. Infection controls and HEPA filtration were implemented as the hospital maintained operations throughout construction. The project was managed with great sensitivity to minimize disruption to patients, staff and visitors and to the surrounding neighborhood of the downtown hospital.
