The St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital is a 555,000 square foot facility with a 286-bed capacity. Located on a 68-acre greenfield site, the project includes operating rooms, exam rooms, intensive care units, labor/delivery rooms and a central energy plant. The hospital is equipped with a comprehensive imaging equipment package that includes digital radiography, nuclear medicine suites with dual detectors, ultrasound, a CT scanner, Cardiac Cath Labs and MRI capabilities.

The project has received significant cost and time savings from the use of the Building Information Modeling as well as through the use of Integrated Project Delivery. Turner utilized BIM to electronically detail the construction scheduling process.

A specific plan was developed for each phase of the project during collaborative scheduling workshops; based on a predefined "master schedule" with key structural milestones. Turner successfully used a Lean practice called “pull scheduling” in combination with rigorous analysis of BIM data to save the client money and deliver the project ahead of schedule. The enhancements to the project team/contractor relationships, scope definition, and field coordination were noticeable.

Turner was awarded the Pyramid Award in the Mega Projects category of Associated Builders and Contractors’ National Excellence in Construction Awards.
