SSOE provided services for renovation of the Covenant Cancer Care Center at the Saginaw campus, including space for medical and surgery oncologist practices, expansion of the infusion suite, relocation of the oncology research suite, relocation of the cardiology and diabetes suites, and the addition of a new front entry.
The intent of the renovation project was to utilize existing clinic spaces where feasible, with modifications and upgrades to meet the needs of the new functions.
The existing building documentation was in 2D AutoCAD format. SSOE converted the existing building area into a BIM model utilizing Revit software. This six-story building was modeled through BIM to allow the team to take full advantage of the 3D capabilities. Having a fully integrated BIM model created a clear vision for hospital administrators and staff. By including hospital administrators and staff in the 3D modeling process, conflicts between construction and operations were easily pinpointed.
