About the Event

The 2017 Banner University Medical Center Expansion Project.

The 700,000-sq.-ft. Emergency Department and Patient Tower Expansion project included a three-story podium that accommodated the emergency department relocation, new observation space on the first floor and surgery expansion and administration on the second floor.Project team members from Banner Health, DPR Construction, HKS Architects, Inc., WSP and multiple trade partners worked collaboratively in a single Big Room space on site. This cohabitation allowed the team to leverage one another's unique expertise in real time to work through challenges quickly and explore out-of-the-box problem solving. The Big Room environment has supported millions of dollars in project savings to date. The team unanimously agrees that the success of this project is directly tied with this integrated daily work model.
