Turner, as part of a joint venture provided preconstruction and construction services on The Temecula Valley Hospital. The 140 bed, five-story, 178,000 square foot hospital was built on a 37-acre site. The hospital features all private rooms, a 20-bed intensive care unit (ICU), high-tach surgical suites, emergency services, and an advanced electronic clinical information system.

The delivery method was a highly collaborative, Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). The IPD delivery method promoted and facilitated strategic planning, design, construction, start up and turnover of the project through the principles of collaboration and lean project delivery. The collaborative effort resulted in a 25% decrease in design time from concept to permit, and a 20% reduction in cost from the historical market average.

The hospital is a strong example of how an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) approach can improve project outcomes both during the design and construction phases, and after occupancy. Input from healthcare professionals during the design phase helped the team minimize the number of times a patient must move once admitted, as well as the distance care providers must travel between offices, nurses stations, supply areas and patient rooms.

The IPD approach and the application of lean construction methods which emphasizes deep collaboration and innovation throughout the construction process helped the team drive the project cost down to $1.1 million per bed, or nearly half the cost of the current California average of $2.0 million per bed. The team also completed the project in 19 months from the start of building foundations to the date of substantial completion, one of the fastest schedules for an acute care hospital in California, and four months faster than the team’s initial schedule.
