Hospital Angiograph Suite
DGA’s Role: Construction Manager
Rochester General Hospital trusted DGA Builders to install a key piece of imaging technology that enables the hospital to provide advanced stroke care and enhanced interventional radiology treatments. The biplane angiography unit, located in the RGH Radiology Department, complements the hospital’s existing capabilities as the region’s leading stroke center, and allows RGH to provide truly comprehensive stroke services to a growing community of patients.
The Bi-plane Addition project consisted of a new 3,500 SF addition located in the former Healing Garden between the E-Building and medical office building. Extensive site work was required and as a value engineering alternative, helical piles were utilized for the building foundations. Foundation work had to account for major underground utilities that traversed the site.
The addition hosts a state-of-the-art bi-plane imaging lab with space for a future lab. The scope included breaking into the existing adjacent corridor in the E-Building, full mechanical-electrical and plumbing (MEP) with dedicated air-handling equipment and facilitating construction on a limited site while accommodating operation of the adjacent maintenance garage and powerhouse. Value engineering efforts led to significant budget reduction from the original design/bid effort.
