8,000 sq ft
renovation in an
reduction in the construction schedule
of construction waste diverted from landfills
New York, New York
A forward-thinking hospital and construction manager find a faster, cleaner, and more sustainable option to build.
Working closely with Lendlease and a state-of-the-art Healthcare System, we evaluated taking a manufactured construction approach to renovating a floor at a busy hospital instead of conventional construction. By comparing cost, schedule impact, install sequence and process, the team was able to determine that a DIRTT construction solution would be the best construction method for this critical project. While the cost came in at a premium, the process was able to reduce the construction by two weeks. Getting the project up and running early easily offset the additional cost.
In evaluating the same approach for a new project, our team was able to work with the team much earlier in the process. This allowed the cost difference between a conventional approach and a manufactured construction approach to be within a 2% difference in cost with a guaranteed two-week reduction in construction schedule!
