Sunrise Women's and Children's Hospital

MMC Contractors was selected by Kitchell Contractors to complete the plumbing, medical gas and HVAC fabrication and installation for the major expansion and renovation project at Sunrise Women's & Children's Hospital.

The  project included a 210,000 sq. ft. tower addition consisting of 110,000 sq. ft. of new construction and 100,000 sq. ft. of renovations to the existing hospital. New labor and delivery areas, C-section rooms, a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), pediatric ICU (PICU), post partum ward, oncology area and staff lounge were added to the existing hospital. Plumbing, Medical Gas, HVAC with a heat recovery system, new HVAC controls were married into the existing control system.

Challenges for the construction team included keeping the existing hospital operational with minimal disruption to patients, staff and services, while construction and renovations were ongoing during the 30-month construction schedule. Additionally, the hospital is located in a busy urban area of Las Vegas and had restricted access and limited on-site storage space.

Timely planning and arrival of materials and equipment was an on-going challenge for all trades on the project. Using the original engineering documents as a guide, many of the piping routes were field designed to reduce interference with hospital operations. Prefabricated plumbing and HVAC components and Just-In-Time delivery were utilized to reduce congestion and waste on the the job site.

MMC Contractors also partnered with Kitchell and Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center to complete the north tower renovation, interior renovation, CT Scan, 3rd and 4th floors, and ICU expansion for the facility.
