Orlando Regional Medical Center
The Orlando Regional Medical Center (ORMC) expansion project represents a major growth opportunity for Orlando Health, Central Florida’s fifth largest employer. A community-based health system consisting of nine existing facilities on a highly concentrated site, ORMC is Central Florida’s only Level One Trauma Center for adults and pediatrics.
The expansion includes a new 10-story patient bed tower and a new four-story diagnostics and treatment building. The project will also add a new atrium lobby, entry plaza, connecting bridges, and basement connecting the existing facilities with the new loading dock area.
The project aggressively pursued LEAN and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) strategies. A few of the innovations included an incentive program for design-assist key subcontractors, more streamlined communication, advanced use of Building Information Modeling, protocols to limit RFI’s and change orders, and offsite prefabrication of building modules. The major structural system consists of a formed beam and slab system, providing long term adaptability, flexibility and constructability. We provided an early concrete package prior to issuing construction documents, which enabled the concrete work to begin three months prior to its anticipated start date.
