The HFS Team used advanced tech for A-E Design Operating Room (OR) Optimization at Portsmouth, VA. To achieve this, HFS developed full A-E design documents with specifications to enable the award of this design-bid-build (D-B-B) project. The scope included a complete design to modernize and expand the existing 110,146 SF main OR suite, pre-operative area, and post-operative recovery area.

The project expansion included:

  • the full design of anesthesia and operating room administration
  • a seven-bed pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) with sedation spaces, and
  • consolidation of the central procedure unit consisting of nine procedure rooms and 18 pre-op/phase II recovery bays

With Revit/3D modeling doctors and hospital staff could visualize the designed space, OR layouts, and proposed equipment placement before construction. In particular, the team developed a unique transition plan that maintained partial aspects of the OR suite operational during renovation.
