Bringing Advanced Surgical Spaces to Florida Hospital Carrollwood

Building Alabama

Located in sunny Tampa, Florida Hospital Carrollwood selected Robins & Morton to complete both an expansion and renovation to their facility. The three-year, $52 million project included a 62,800-square-foot, three-story horizontal addition and 40,810-square-foot renovation. Through this project, the team was able to make a variety of improvements to the surgical department, such as the addition of 10 new operating rooms, support spaces, and the renovations to the existing space.

This project was particularly complex in the way that it required relocation and adjustments of various site infrastructure including chillers, underground water retention vaults, main electric service, gas service, and water service. To effectively manage the simultaneous construction, infrastructure work and the tie into the existing facility, Robins & Morton implemented programs for detailed personnel management, quality control, scheduling and value analysis.

Upon arrival, all trade contractors were required to attend an onboarding session. This communicated the overall project goals, expectations, and our open-door policy on the project. One of the most important project expectations was the requirement for everyone to participate in Last Planner System (LPS) meetings, defined by the meeting structure. By utilizing the LPS, a Lean collaborative scheduling tool, Robins & Morton was able to better plan near-term, monthly, weekly and daily tasks with trade partners. The daily aspect of the LPS brought material, workforce and general constraints to the forefront in real time, allowing resolution before impacting the budget or schedule. The project also utilized Building Information Modeling (BIM), which was crucial to resolving overhead and underground coordination issues prior to actual construction. All of these items economized each facet of the project, allowing better time management and proactive budget and quality management.
