franciscan health michigan city replacement hospital under construction

Franciscan Health Michigan City Replacement Hospital Michigan City, Indiana

The roughly $243 million facility will have 130 inpatient beds, in addition to those that will remain at the current Homer Street location. The exterior of the facility required acoustical glazing to quiet I-94 traffic. More than 300 Tradesmen worked on the 35-acre construction to complete the facility by the end of 2018. The new hospital used Building Information Modeling throughout the entire process design to construction. BIM bring all parties to the table at the beginning which reduces costly changes throughout the project. All aspects of the project, including all utilities, gravity systems, mechanical systems, electrical, fire systems, etc are contained within one file which is shared with by the design and construction team, along with subcontractors. As the project progressed, a new model was issued so that all subcontractors were aware of any changes that might impact the design, schedule and budget.
