Partnering Penrose Hospital Surgical Renovation

Oct 01, 1998

This article describes a construction project at Penrose Hospital in Colorado Springs. The Penrose Facility Department was faced with a severely aging infrastructure for an active surgical suite. The existing hospital campus did not allow for the construction of new facilities. A practical option was the renovation of the existing OR suite. The development of the disassembly concept was a breakthrough for the design team. It lead to a series of design decisions, predicated on new construction techniques centered around the strategic and careful removal of unwanted items.
