Southern Colorado's First Children's Hospital
Farnsworth Group was selected as the Owner’s Commissioning Authority for this new hospital in Colorado Springs, located on the Memorial North Campus. Our scope of services included commissioning of traditional mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, as well as hospital unique systems such as medical gas, sterilization, emergency power systems, electrical power distribution, and isolation pressurization.
Our approach focused on developing relationships with the Owner and Operations staff to properly understand the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR) and components that led to the long-term operational success of the facility. Children’s Hospital elected to use the Integrated Design Process with most members of the design and construction team on board early in the design. This approach lent itself to long-term success of the commissioning process where were able to develop relationships, trust, and rapport with the Owner, the design team, and the construction team.
Our services included pre-design services through design, construction, acceptance, and warranty.
