Multiple Projects on the Anschutz Medical Campus
The University of Colorado Hospital project was unique in that this is one of the first projects where all construction and design documents were completely electronic. The construction foremen utilized iPads and the entire team communicated electronically. Another unique aspect of the project included the delivery of the various pieces of the Inpatient Pavilion and Cancer Pavilion. The bathrooms and racks for the beams were pre-assembled off-site and then installed. This required extensive coordination between the various contractors and the electronic delivery method of drawings and plans proved beneficial with manufacturing taking place off-campus.
Awarded the MEP Commissioning of the University of Colorado Hospital Authority Expansion and Anschutz Cancer Pavilion project, Farnsworth Group’s services began in July of 2011. As a third-party commissioning agent reporting to the Owner we were directly responsible for providing documentation of occupancy and design criteria, defining the fundamental performance testing and creating the documentation necessary for proper evaluation and testing and systems integration for operational excellence. In addition, we oversaw the commissioning necessary for LEED certification.
