An important phase of Boston Medical Center’s four-year clinical campus redesign plan, the Menino project included the demolition of an existing infill building, a new 120,000-square-foot addition, 220,000 square feet of renovations to the Menino Pavilion, and construction of a pedestrian bridge with elevator towers at each end. Upon completion, the improved facility included services for radiology, surgery, emergency and trauma, pharmacy, central sterile processing, interventional procedures, and inpatient care units.
The project came to fruition through a single Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) contract agreement with Tocci Building Companies, TRO JB, and Suffolk Construction. Sunrise was contracted by Suffolk to help to bring this “design-assist” concept to reality. Through the design-assist process, Sunrise engineers/project managers participated in weekly design-assist meetings with TRO JB to collaborate on the engineering and procurement of the façade design. Once the design-assist phase was complete, the Sunrise team mobilized in the field for the construction phase to bring the façade design to reality.
The product scope included air and vapor barrier, thermally broken exterior framing, insulation, aluminum curtainwall, aluminum entrances, aluminum windows, aluminum skylight, composite metal panels, terra cotta, expansion joints and miscellaneous interior glass and glazing.
