Serving the health needs of Jacksonville, Florida, the Baptist Health MD Anderson Cancer Center brings dedicated cancer care to North Florida. The new 9-story, 600,000-square-foot project opened on time in September of 2018.
At the height of the construction process in September of 2017, the construction team confronted a potential schedule buster that’s difficult to anticipate in even the best preconstruction planning—a hurricane. As Hurricane Irma headed towards Florida, Miller Electric Company looked at precise BIM plans for the project and rapidly changed them to account for the coming weather onslaught.
The University of Virginia Health System (UVA) University Hospital Expansion
Medium Project ($100 Million - $500 Million)
The University of Virginia Health System (UVA) University Hospital Expansion will add 440,000 square feet of space to the most advanced medical facility in the western part of Virginia. With one of the region’s few trauma centers, UVA receives as many as 20 patients via helicopter each day. The construction manager, Skanska USA, and design team, Perkins+Will, used 3D construction models linked to schedules to deliver the project safely, and to keep the hospital’s helipad—located just 30 feet from construction cranes—in normal operation for 22 months.
There’s much to like about Facebook’s new Clonee Data Centre in Clonee, Ireland. Supported by 100% wind energy, the Clonee Data Centre is a complex that includes a pair of 25,000-square-meter data halls designed to bring Facebook apps and services to people around the world. As many as 1,500 people per day contributed to the construction of these centers, with project general contractor Mace Technology Ireland leading the construction phase of the undertaking.
