Scope of Services

Environmental Design Group provided survey, civil engineering, landscape architecture services, and lead the design effort for all exterior elements of the building. The design strategy was characterized by the Integrated Lean Project Delivery method, and the collaboration was a departure from the traditional design-bid-build model. The team strategized daily with design practitioners, construction managers and trade partners, and bi-weekly meetings on campus enabled discussion on various design and construction elements.


This project enabled the continued realization of the hospital’s mission to provide a superior patient experience by improving productivity and eliminating waste, to create space for children in need by accommodating an increased number of patients, and to offer an expert level of healthcare by maintaining facilities that attract nationally acclaimed physicians.
