Kennewick General Hospital Southridge

Bringing Healthcare to the Pacific Northwest

Since 2007, Kennewick General Hospital (KGH) has been on a mission to identify funding opportunities that would allow it to update and maintain its aging 27-bed downtown facility with a focus on  pediatrics and obstetrics, while delivering “quality healthcare close to home” at the new state-of-the-art campus situated on a portion of its Southridge property’s 40 acres.  KGH found a perfect match for the assignment in Wisconsin-based C.D. Smith Construction, who specialized in building healthcare facilities and is acting as both general contractor and leaseback financier on the $112-million hospital.  Bringing its cutting-edge solutions to the 171,700-sf facility is Portland-based PKA Architects whose design will accommodate the latest medical technology.

Bergelectrc’s first-hand knowledge of the KGH project over the past five years—as well as substantial hospital preconstruction expertise coupled with recent experience in the regional construction market—offered the C.D. Smith team valuable insight into pinpoint-accurate pricing that provided details for any remaining gaps in the budget calculations as final design of the 74-bed facility neared completion.  In a design-assist role under the direction of Bergelectric Project Manager Alex Yurchenko, Berg professionals are working hand-in-hand with Interface Engineering in providing value-engineering options such as a comprehensive review of the lighting package, which will keep the budget-sensitive project on course and progressing to its 2014 completion.

Bergelectric crews will perform highly-accurate in-slab installations for insets, sleeves and conduits utilizing 2D layouts on Trimble® Total Station technologies.  Supporting the work of the field crews, Berg in-house detailers are providing BIM 3D modeling of electrical rooms and 1-lines, cable try and conduit racks to facility a smooth construction effort.
