SJHMC – Hyperbaric Suite

There was 3,700 sq ft of medical office space to buildout 7  exam rooms, 3 ADA Bathrooms, and clinical space that provided room for 2  hyperbaric chambers. The centerpiece of the facility is the 9-foot high, 170 square ft, 12 person hyperbaric chamber, which is the largest in Arizona. An opening in the west end of the building was created to provide access needed to rig the large unit approximately 90 feet to the final location. The rig path required that the unit be moved over the underground parking garage requiring shoring of the concrete T’s during the delivery process. The largest challenge that was overcome during this project was the specialized nature of this equipment. Many project stakeholders were unfamiliar with this exact piece of equipment and required pre-planning of the equipment requirements, connections and inspections. A full team approach including the end user, facility, design team, construction team and AHJs was needed to facilitate the successful completion of this project.
