Valleywise – MRI & Lobby Expansion

Guthrie General, Inc. recently partnered with MIHS and Orcutt Winslow on this 2 Phase Expansion/Renovation of the MRI Department and existing Lobby at Maricopa Medical Center. The project consisted of approximately 6,000 sq ft located on the first floor at the North Section of Maricopa Medical Center. This space was created for the new home of a 3.0 and 1.5 MRI.

To assist the owner and design team, preconstruction management services were provided in order to deliver detailed independent cost estimating and gain efficiencies in the overall project delivery. Guthrie collaborated with the design team by implementing weekly special inspections for quality control throughout the construction process. Guthrie and its subcontractors were familiar with working in this facility and with the hospital personnel; this created a teamwork approach to accomplishing the project goals and maintain the hospital remain open and fully functional throughout the construction project.

Work included demolition of existing walls, millwork, flooring, ceilings, doors, windows, HVAC, electrical and plumbing. New work included the labor, material and installation of a new slab, underground MEP, CMU, iron fabrication, general fabrication, walls, windows, doors, roofing, interior/exterior structural/rough finishes, flooring, acoustical treatment, decorative concrete, casework, security systems/controls, furniture, lockers, HVAC, plumbing, fire sprinklers, fire alarm, electrical automated controls, voice/data cabling, site work, landscaping, interior/exterior signage, surveying, etc.

Our project superintendent worked closely with the hospital ICRA liaison to provide control measures, logs and documentation. Guthrie’s Superintendent and our 3rd party safety consultant implemented safety standards to control foot traffic near the construction site and protect the general public while having the hospital open during construction in order to not have interruption of any services. A plywood safety structure was constructed for safe access to the chapel during the lobby project in order to keep the chapel open.

Coordination between the design/construction team and the various district and state agencies was crucial in the success of bringing this project in on time.
