Featured Projects: Clinical
Clinical Medical Construction is as demanding as construction gets. Excellence in infection control and barriers, client communication, and proactive planning is essential when working in occupied clinical spaces. This challenging work is where Solica demonstrates how it stands apart.
CCHMC - Compounding Pharmacy for Home Care Services
Key Challenge: The project was redesigned several times based upon updated budget limitations and yet was still completed within budget and schedule. Positive comments from all end users upon occupancy.
Project Description: Convert 23,000 s.f. of existing office and warehouse space into new open offices, private offices, supply rooms, and build a new 3,400 s.f USP 797 Clean Room Compounding Pharmacy. Solica provided all CM/Design Build services including initial programming, space utilization analysis, preconstruction, and relocation/move coordination.
St. Elizabeth Hospital System
Key Challenge: The biggest difficulty that arises within hospital construction is the need for many of the spaces around the construction to remain functional for much of the day. To combat this issue, Solica was flexible and completed extensive weekend and night work, allowing the rest of the staff and patients at St. Elizabeth’s to continue on with their day and not have their procedures and appointments interrupted. Solica’s client first approach allowed us to assist St. Elizabeth in their ongoing patient care and daily medical procedures
Project Description: Solica was brought in by St. Elizabeth to complete steady renovation work at multiple locations within the St. Elizabeth hospital network. This work included not only clinical space, such as surgery rooms, but also extended to non-clinical construction such as waiting areas and out-patient rooms. Solica has an extensive scope with St. Elizabeth, working on both General Trades and Interior Finishes within the hospitals.
Mercy Fairfield - 5th Floor Renovation
Key Challenge: Because of the massive changes that were made to the Mercy Hospital, Solica faced the challenge of relocating the existing elevators in the hospital. We were able to think on our feet and successfully change the layout of Mercy’s elevator system while minimizing the disruptions this caused to the rest of the hospital.
Project Description: Mercy Hospital contracted Solica Construction to be the General Trades contractor and oversee the renovation of 30 clinical in-patient suites at the Fairfield location. In this role, Solica’s scope of work was extensive, entailing infection control for set up, monitoring, and maintenance, demolition for new elevators, unit masonry and steel, laying new concrete slabs, and completing the entire carpentry and interior finishes. With this wide of a scope, Solica’s excellent Construction Management skills helped to ensure that each part of the project received great attention to detail without ignoring the project as a whole.
