Value Analysis Study
Hospital and Medical Facilities
The project included site development of an approximately 30 acre site; including access roads, utilities, parking lots, and landscaping. The facility is a two story, load-bearing masonry and steel frame building. It is constructed above a crawl-space with steel joist/steel deck and concrete topping floor and roof systems.
This study proposed a number of alternatives within the basic systems, including mechanical, electrical, and structural systems that significantly reduced the cost and improved the constructability, while maintaining the aesthetic quality of the facility. In addition, the cost savings that are realized within these basic systems can be applied to other key building elements to improve the environmental quality of the building. In particular, issues such as ease of circulation, way-finding, and day-lighting warrant additional resources.
MENG Analysis provided a total of 28 proposals and a total first cost savings potential of $5,235,000.
