Presbyterian Hospital Addition and Renovation – Phase 1
Jaynes built Presbyterian’s tallest tower yet on its original, 111-year-old campus. The new 10-story, 135-foot facility provides an increase in patient rooms of more than 25%, increasing to approximately 656 patient rooms. Parts of the existing facility are more than 60 years old. With some spaces starting to show their age in addition to limited space, Presbyterian is planning to prepare for New Mexico’s inevitable population growth. Phase one of this Construction Manager at Risk project involved infrastructure relocation and upgrades, building demolition stabilization and shoring, central energy center upgrades, and the diagnostic and treatment unit/patient tower expansion and renovation.
Seeing every challenge as an opportunity for growth has proven to be beneficial to our project team. In addition to working in a healthcare setting, which involves our most sensitive spaces, the project is tied-in to a fully functioning healthcare center. Additionally, the construction of the approximately 335,000 square foot facility was located next to one of Albuquerque’s busiest streets, Central Ave. The project also consisted of two independent structures separated by an expansion joint. These structures are a 10-story bed tower/diagnostic and treatment unit and a two-story connector to the existing hospital entry. Both are directly adjacent to existing hospital structures. Jaynes broke ground in October of 2019 but was preparing through our pre-construction services long before this date. Proactive collaboration with Presbyterian Healthcare Services and DPS Architects structured the project in a way that our entire team was able to combine our forces to provide innovative design and construction solutions to maximize the patient experience and operational efficiency.
