UT Southwestern Medical Center William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital
SSR provided multiple lines of services for the 12-floor, 460-room patient-centered hospital that utilizes innovative design, advanced technology, and best practices to provide excellence in care, along with a 450-car parking garage and a new central utility plant/support services building. The fourth floor houses a 30,000 SF lab serving as research space for microbiology, hemotology, chemistry, and histology.
The site was originally master planned to accommodate clinical inpatient facility growth up to a 750-bed hospital, with appropriate parking garages and support services. SSR is currently working on this expansion with additional HUB partners.
SSR utilized Revit and Navisworks in the BIM/3-D modeling process to facilitate a constructible model. This project was designed for LEED Silver® certification. A 12.4 KV, two 10MVA feeds to serve a central plant, materials management building, support services building, and a hospital. The feeds included two active 10MVA feeders and two standby 10MVA feeders in the event of a major failure.
This project included one HUB partnership for the parking garages, materials management building (MMB), and the thermal energy plant. A second HUB partnership existed for the technology design. As the lead MEP design firm, SSR worked closely with these partner firms to establish a responsibility matrix, share coordination information during the design phase, and help provide an integrated and coordinated project to the owner.
