UNC Rex Healthcare Heart and Vascular Hospital

  • Rex UNC Healthcare wanted to add a Heart and Vascular Hospital on their campus, dedicated solely to the treatment of patients with heart disease. By implementing design-assist and prefabrication, Skanska fast-tracked the schedule by three months and saved enough money to fit out the eighth floor, which was originally planned as shell space.

Skanska provided preconstruction and construction management services for this multi-phased project that started in 2011 with the construction of a central energy plant and completed in 2017 with the Heart and Vascular Hospital. This major expansion and renovation to the Rex UNC Healthcare Campus included: a 17,000-SF, two-story central energy plant and utility tunnel; 400-car, cast-in-place parking deck and loop road; rooftop helipad on an active emergency department; 307,000-SF, eight-story Heart and Vascular Hospital with 127 rooms, eight cardiac catheterization labs, two operating rooms, two hybrid operating rooms, a café, cardiac rehabilitation and conference center; and an interior courtyard enclosed by the Heart and Vascular Hospital. Skanska fast-tracked the schedule for the Heart and Vascular Hospital by implementing a design-assist delivery with key trade partners and prefabrication to save time and money while improving quality. Not only did these innovative approaches save three months on the project schedule, but enough money was saved during design-assist to fit out the eighth floor, which was originally planned as shell space.
