John L. McClellan VA Hospital OR Suite Addition

 Location:  Little Rock, AR      Owner: Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System    |    Architect:  BES Design/Build

The 24,400 SF medical center addition and renovation project consisted of five new operating rooms, one special purpose operating room, and renovating the post-anesthetic care unit and support spaces.

Unique challenges included constructing a new addition on top of an existing ICU; installing and upgrading complex mechanical systems; and leveling out the existing roof / new floor.

This project required close communication with the VA, architect, and subcontractors to ensure limited disturbances to hospital operations and patients.
