Ellis Hospital Critical Care UnitAugust 7, 2017
Chazen completed civil engineering, landscape architecture, and planning services for the addition of Ellis Hospital’s new Critical Care Unit (CCU) addition. The four-story facility was located on one of the few remaining large, lawn areas on the hospital campus adjacent to the hospital’s main entrance. Numerous utilities servicing the existing hospital access the building through the open area, and required extensive rerouting and modification to accommodate the new addition. Management of storm water runoff changes was a significant challenge for the project requiring the design of a subsurface management system capable of handling heavy truck loading. Chazen also completed full redesign and regrading of the oncology parking lot to accommodate a new mobile MRI facility and a bus stop for the Employee Shuttle.
