Hunter Roberts performed general contracting services to TUHS for the expansion and relocation of Temple University Hospital’s PACU Suite, as part of their Clinical Improvement Program, a multi-year design and construction project aimed at improving the existing operating rooms, as well as building out new operating room facilities.

The PACU project area is the former home of the Dialysis and Burn Units which were relocated.  The scope of work included extensive demolition of the space including mechanical systems, and the fit-out for Patient Bays and Rooms, Nurse’s Stations, Clean and Soiled Storage, Staff Lounge and Lockers, as well as various support space.

The new bays and rooms have headwall units that require the installation of med gases and nurses call.  Custom millwork highlights the Nurse’s stations and Staff Lounge. Running simultaneously with the PACU relocation, Hunter Roberts performed renovations/improvements to the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems that were required in order to facilitate the construction of the new PACU and the remaining phases of the Clinical Improvement Plan.  This phase also included the demo and replacement of two air handling units. Hunter Roberts coordinated all utility tie-ins and shutdowns with Temple’s Office of Facilities Management, which was required to occur off hours.
