Sutter Eden Medical Center
New Medical Center
Location:Castro Valley, CA
Scope:Detailing, Fabrication and Installation of HVAC Systems, LEED Silver
The Sutter Eden Medical Center is a 130-bed, acute care hospital totaling 230,000 square feet. The new medical center was built adjacent to the existing Eden Medical Center which remained in full operation until the new medical center was completed.
Superior completed the project around existing hospital traffic and activities, while working to cause minimal disruption. During preconstruction, building Information Modeling (BIM) helped Superior perform clash detection and generate estimates quicker and more frequently.
The Sutter Medical Center project used cutting-edge Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) methodologies. Superior and ten other involved parties signed an Integrated Form of Agreement (IFOA) Contract. The high level of collaboration the contract demanded was a challenge for the Superior team, but the increased communication helped fast-track the design schedule and deliver the project on time and within budget.
