Shriners Hospitals Selects Bricsnet ProjectCenter as Collaboration Solution

SAN FRANCISCO—(BUSINESS WIRE)—October 3, 2007— Bricsnet, a leading provider of technology solutions for the real estate, architecture, engineering and construction industries, announced today that Honolulu Hospital will deploy ProjectCenter to manage a $73 million dollar replacement project. As one of 22 Shriners hospitals in the United States, Canada and Mexico, the Honolulu Hospital is the second oldest, established in 1923. Reconstructed in the 1960s with an addition in 1992, the hospital provides orthopedic healthcare to over 23,000 children from Hawaii and 17 other countries in the Pacific Basin.

"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.

ProjectCenter is a long-trusted solution for the global architectural, engineering and construction communities. First launched in 1998, ProjectCenter was one of the first web-based solutions for managing projects online. Today, hundreds of Fortune 500 companies, architects, construction companies and engineering firms around the world succeed with Bricsnet ProjectCenter.
