Virginia Commonwealth University Health Systems – Critical Care Hospital

Recipient of the 2012 VISTA award featured in Health Facilities Management, the new Critical Care Hospital for the Virginia Commonwealth University Health System features six (6) intensive care units for neurosurgical, burn, surgical trauma, medical respiratory, neonatal, and cardiac; two (2) patient floors for oncology and acute cares specialists; ten (10) operating rooms, including a hybrid neurosurgical suite; 232 in-patient beds; emergency department for Virginia’s only Level I Trauma Center; and a clinic and 20-bed secure care unit for the state department of corrections. Scope of work for this project included all acoustics, noise and vibration control consulting for the fifteen-story addition to the existing main hospital. Design schedule included involvement in design development, preparation of construction documents, and bidding document review. Responsibilities included the development of acoustical criteria for HVAC equipment noise levels, sound isolation, room acoustical and floor slab vibration properties, and room adjacencies and shaping for all acoustically sensitive spaces throughout the facility. Features also included the development of sound and vibration isolation concepts for the building structure due to the structure-borne vibration and high noise levels emanating from the helipad located on the roof of the building. The project was a seventh-month design effort with construction having been successfully complete since October 2008.
