Banner Boswell Medical Center Project Uses Prefabricated Wall Panels

The panels saved approximately three months of construction time and allowed for enhanced safety precautions

October 15, 2020

The recent construct project at the Banner Boswell Medical Center  in Sun City, Ariz., involved the use of prefabricated interior and exterior wall panels, constructed offsite and delivered to the job site for installation, according to an article on the AZ Big Media website.

The use of prefabricated wall panels saving approximately three months of construction time and  allowed for enhanced safety precautions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Of the 625 prefabricated panels used at Banner Boswell, most were fitted to the outside of the new tower as part of the exterior skin. 

Approximately 125 of the prefabricated wall panels were interior partition walls and were placed inside the emergency department.

Many healthcare architects, contractors and owners are shifting their paradigm and increasingly moving towards modular design and prefabrication, according to an article on the Healthcare Construction + Design website. In addition to saving time, the shift is allowing for better building information models. Prefabrication requires architects and consultants to maintain better building information models (BIM) because subcontractor trades need a model to fabricate components.
