Officials from the Mohawk Valley Health System (MVHS) in New York State have selected an architectural firm and a construction manager for the planning, design and construction of its hospital project. The architectural firm is NBBJ, and the construction manager is the Turner Construction Company.
NBBJ and Turner will work closely with the outreach team to consider community input during the design and construction phases. The cost projection for the integrated health campus is approximately $480 million for a 750,000-square-foot facility.
“We are excited to be able to begin this next phase as it means that we are getting that much closer to this project becoming a reality,” said Scott H. Perra, FACHE, president/CEO of MVHS. “Both companies have extensive local and international experience, with projects in New York and around the United States as well as in many cities abroad. The companies are committed to working with our local businesses whenever possible to complete the project.”
“NBBJ was selected from a list of 19 of the best healthcare architects in the country,” said David J. Connolly, senior vice president of the Hammes Company – the project management company hired by MVHS to facilitate the new hospital project. “They bring a wealth of creative solutions that provide a platform of operational efficiency, sustainability and flexibility which will serve MVHS and the community for many years to come.”
NBBJ and Turner have extensive experience working with one another. Together they have completed more than $2.6 billion in projects, many of which have focused on healthcare.
