Delta provided planning, programming, interior design services for 40,000 sf of renovations to three nursing units on the upper floors of the University of Maryland Medical Center’s North Hospital. The three-phase renovation included interior reconfiguration of the existing nursing units on the 8th, 9th and 10th floors that serve bone marrow transplant patients, cancer patients, and intermediate care patients.
The project involved converting the existing space into a mix of private, semi private and isolation rooms, and included coordination between hospital departments including IT systems, pharmacy, and material services. It included upgrades to all mechanical, plumbing, electrical, and fire protection services within the units to bring them into compliance with the latest UMMC facility standards.
The team provided design and construction administration services, including mechanical engineering for temporary occupancy of one unit by bone marrow transplant (BMT) patients, to be re-balanced for cancer care patients once the BMT patients were relocated.
The project was completed in phases to minimize disturbance of existing occupancies and to coordinate with other ongoing projects within the hospital at a cost of $10.7 million.
