Collaborative Approach Proves Valuable on Tradition Medical Center Expansion

Building Alabama

For Robins & Morton, a culture of innovation, transparency and inclusion has been integral to the success of the complex, 167,000-square-foot Tradition Medical Center expansion and renovation project. Doubling the hospital’s capacity, the project includes a three-story vertical addition to the top of the existing six-story hospital as well as interior renovations. Inside, the addition houses 90 new patient beds, an expanded intensive care unit and 12-bed progressive care unit. Renovations improved the maternal-child area, including an expansion of the neonatal intensive care unit.

From the outset of the project, Robins & Morton, Martin Health, CBRE Healthcare and HKS Architects established a collaborative culture, beginning with an alignment meeting to discuss the project-specific values, or conditions of satisfaction. When construction began, Robins & Morton held onboarding sessions for all trade contractors, highlighting the importance of the project to the community, and providing a platform for the discussion of ideas and expectations. To further promote the established environment, team members also co-located onsite.

The team is utilizing Planning at the Source to identify issues on the project before they happen, resulting in real-time, creative-problem solving and innovation. To maximize productivity, the team is also using prefabricated overhead racks and headwall systems, decreasing the amount of on-site installation, saving time and money.

Using these Lean tools and philosophies, the project team is successfully delivering the expansion project to Martin Health. The expanded Tradition Medical Center opened its doors on October 30, while the remaining renovations are scheduled to complete in March.
