Advocate Aurora’s new Ambulatory Health Center in Greenfield, Wis., used 80 multi-trade prefab MEP racks that included long sections of duct work in the corridors, according to an article on the Building Design + Construction website.
Forty percent of the above-ceiling MEP work was built off-site. The construction was completed one month earlier than expected.
Using mobile devices, workers scanned the barcodes to verify the location for each installation. Once on site and verified, the prefabricated racks were lifted to each floor to be connected and attached, a task completed within an hour of each delivery.
Mark Lillesand, a vIce president with project’s construction company,CG Schmidt, said his firm now “prefabricates everything we can” especially now when the coronavirus has increased the need for jobsite safety.
According to an Healthcare Construction + Design article , rehab construction allows for better building information models and modular designs and standardization.
