Geneva General Hospital BIM Services

GenevaHospitalC&S provided building information modeling and management during pre construction and construction of two additions at Geneva General Hospital in Geneva, New York. One 50,000-square-foot addition contained a new intensive care unit. The other addition was a three-story, 150,000-square-foot new area for patient rooms and operating rooms. Before the construction commenced, C&S provided a timeline sequencing model that tied the BIM model with the actual construction schedule. This model was presented to the client in a real-time walkthrough addressing critical dates and milestones while building the hospital virtually component-by-component. Once the construction got underway, shop drawings were modeled from the sub contractors, and were linked to the model, allowing the construction team to study difficult areas, and to perform clash detection. All hanger locations for ductwork, piping, and conduit were laid out and loaded into a Robotic Total Station. This tool generates laser points for the installation of the hangers, so they can be installed in advance of fireproofing. By using BIM, the project was kept on track and the major critical components could be fabricated in advance off site. This project also included BIM consulting to the electrical, the mechanical and the fire protection sub consultants. C&S modeled all of the electrical conduits, hangers, cable trays and electrical equipment for the electrical subcontractor. We provided templates and training for the fire protection sub contractor as well as BIM management for the mechanical sub contractor. C&S also ran on-site coordination meetings with all subcontractors present.
