Group PMX provided Owner Representative Services for this new one-story, 2,800 gross square foot, modular structure extension adjacent to the existing Emergency Department of NYU Winthrop Hospital.
The new Trauma Center provides three new trauma bays, two trauma holding bays, and a reconfigured ambulance triage entrance for improved emergency vehicle parking and stretcher patient in-flow to the Trauma Center and Emergency Department.
The construction – comprising the installation of nine modular unit structures fabricated in Indiana and Illinois – allowed for a shorter on-site building construction schedule and lower building costs compared to conventional ground-up construction. The modular units were landed within one weekend and the facility opened to patients three months later. Conventional stick-built would have required at least six to nine months of in-place construction. The cost per square foot using modular construction was approximately 33% of traditional construction costs, representing a tremendous saving to the Hospital.
The modular construction of this highly sensitive Trauma Center is the first of its kind at NYU Winthrop Hospital and serves as a model for upcoming projects.
