Inland Hospital Emergency Department
|Lavallee / Brensinger Architects
|Preconstruction, negotiated guaranteed maximum price (time-and-materials, not-to-exceed)
To meet the growing need for emergency care at Inland, the Board of Directors there commissioned Lavallee/Brensinger Architects to develop four options for adding Emergency Department space in the most cost-effective way possible.
Nickerson & O’Day managed the master scheduling and preconstruction phase by providing option schedules and conceptual cost estimates, value engineering and, after an option was chosen, more detailed design-development estimates. Once plans were complete, the earlier budget was confirmed and despite four additional renovation phases and an alternate Emergency Department entrance relocation, the project was finished under its original budget!
