"This project has high visibility and is really important to the community. We chose Bricsnet to facilitate collaboration, creativity and efficiency for the design and construction teams because ProjectCenter is a trusted, proven, solution that delivers in short order," says Tom Ochab, Director of Facilities Management for Shriners Hospitals.
The scope of the project included visioning, programming, site/building condition assessment and strategies for future development. A study evaluated facility and departmental needs for the next 10 years and provided options for either renovating or replacing the hospital. The renovation project is the second largest project Bricsnet successfully completed for Shiners. To date, the largest Bricsnet implementation for Shiners is ProjectCenter for a replacement hospital in Mexico City.
The Honolulu project is a phased replacement. The design of the new 6.58 acre campus will expand and modernize the facilities from its present 86,000 square feet to approximately 150,000 square feet. Ferraro Choi and Associates LTD teamed with the prime architectural firm of SRG Partnership Inc. to design the replacement hospital. The new 24-bed hospital will allow Shriners Hospitals for Children to fulfill its mission and meet the future needs of patients as the premier Pediatric Orthopedic Hospital in the State of Hawaii.
