Presbyterian Hospital Addition and Renovation – Phase 1
Jaynes is building Presbyterian’s tallest tower yet on its original, 111-year-old campus. Slated to open in 2022, the new 10-story, 135-foot facility will provide 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 involves 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 is located next to one of Albuquerque’s busiest streets, Central Ave. The project also consists 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 has structured the project in a way that our entire team was able to combine our forces to provide innovative design and construction solutions that will maximize the patient experience, operational efficiency, and safety on and surrounding the site.
