The Hauenstein Center at Saint Mary's

Descriptions

Driesenga & Associates

Driesenga & Associates, Inc. provided civil engineering, surveying and landscape architecture for what is to be a LEED certified facility. In efforts to provide environmentally sensitive site design, a roof water collection system was designed to provide a source of water for the developed landscape areas. Project Management included coordination of simultaneous street reconstruction, existing hospital campus operations, demolition and construction of the Hauenstein center and adjacent 550 space parking structure. As well as synchronization between active members of design team which included: Architect, Owner, structural engineer, mechanical engineer and parking consultants. The Hauenstein Center of Saint Mary’s Hospital will bring together both inpatient and outpatient neurological services under one roof for the diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases including: Alzheimer’s, stroke, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and spine disorders, resulting in higher levels of service and convenience for their patients and families. The site is in an urban historic district, at the center of a fully functioning medical campus in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids, MI. In conjunction with the onsite improvement, efforts where coordinated with the City of Grand Rapids as they redeveloped the adjacent City streets and created one of the City’s first round-about at the northwest corner of the site.

Wolverine Building Group

Designed by Trinity Design of Farmington Hills, The new Saint Mary's addition will have two stories and approximately 90,000 square feet of space. It will have space for 20 primary care physicians along with 8 to 10 specialists and a state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center with four operating rooms to handle ear, nose and throat surgeries, hand surgeries, orthopedic procedures and other general surgeries.

It will also include a Diagnostic center featuring the latest imaging services, a complete lab, and an urgent care center. It will also include imaging (X-ray) services, a clinical laboratory, complementary health services, an urgent care center, a pharmacy, an outpatient surgery center, and additional support space.

The building was designed to maximize efficiency and convenience for the users, while minimizing the impact on the environment. There were also many sustainable techniques considered and decided on for the project as Saint Mary’s plans to seek LEED certification for the building.

According to project manager Mark Bradburn, “some of the ‘green’ features of building include a large clerestory to disperse natural light and underground storage tanks that will be used to collect rain runoff for later use on the lawn’s irrigation system.”

To patients arriving for analysis and treatment, the Hauenstein Center at Saint Mary’s means added convenience: with all outpatient and inpatient neuroscience services now together under one roof, a patient’s visit has become simpler in terms of logistics, scheduling, and physician collaboration. But to Paul Hansma, Allied Electric’s project manager during the construction process, the new healthcare facility meant something quite different as far as logistics, scheduling and collaboration were concerned. “They demolished a 50-year-old building and put the new facility in between a parking ramp and existing power plant, making it a very, very tight site,” Hansma recalls. With sidewalk-to-sidewalk construction, normally a challenge for cities considerably larger than Grand Rapids, “just about everything needs to be precisely scheduled because you’re not allowed much on-site storage,” Hansma explains.

In addition to the challenge of the tight squeeze, completion of the $60-million project required Allied Electric’s involvement in the installation of a 64-slice CT scanner and digital radiology equipment. Also benefiting from Allied’s expertise were the expanded emergency department, Level II trauma facility, and critical care unit. Construction of the Hauenstein Center, named for Grand Rapids businessman and philanthropist Ralph Hauenstein, involved cutting-edge Green technology as well.
