The Allina Health Abbott Northwestern Hospital Emergency Department project consisted of a 40,000 SF renovation to the emergency department, imaging and cancer centers. JE Dunn worked with HGA Architects and Engineers to complete this renovation “on top of itself”, allowing for ongoing hospital operations. The JE Dunn team developed a complex phasing plan that maintained all departmental services while keeping major phases down to just three moves, compared to the eight moves originally planned.
Work included major electrical gear replacements, fire suppression system upgrades, and other major MEP systems that required full building shutdowns to accomplish. According to the facility director, the extensive preplanning efforts from the JE Dunn team on these portions of the project was a major differentiator and were executed without issue.
