Project outcome

Lendlease provided construction management services for the Emergency Department Expansion project at South Shore University Hospital, a comprehensive renovation and expansion to the existing Emergency Department, which was originally constructed in the late 1970s. The project was completed in two phases (1a and 1b) and took place in and around an active Emergency Department and occupied clinical hospital facility. The scope included additions, alterations, demolition, renovations, infrastructure, interiors, landscaping, sitework and retained facades.

Phase 1a consisted of a new two-story, 9,000 square foot building constructed between and connected to the existing one-story Emergency Department on one side and a four-story clinical hospital building on the other. Both existing buildings remained 100% operational during construction. This was followed by the renovation of the first floor (11,000 square feet) of the four-story clinical building. New MEP systems were installed throughout the combined 20,000 square foot space, including a new 50,000 CFM Roof Top Air Handling Unit (RTU) added to the existing, occupied Emergency Department building and a new chiller and electrical penthouse placed on the new building's roof. Connections were made to existing medical gases, chilled water and domestic water on campus and adjoined to the new space. Phase 1b comprised the renovation of the former Emergency Department while keeping the ambulance entrance and trauma bays open. Together, these expansions and renovations created a new 40,000 sf Emergency Department.

Phase 1 improvements included the new entrance and lobby; a new Super Track Emergency Department focused on the intake, treatment and discharge of lower-acuity patients; a new suite of private treatment rooms; a dedicated behavioral health unit; and a new helipad. Project completed in 2016.

Phase 2 included the Clinical Decision Unit (Phase 2A) which expanded the ED again by about 10,000 square feet and the rest of Phase 2 completed renovations of existing ED space. Completed in 2018.
