On the Boards – Healthcare

From concept design through construction administration, Nacht & Lewis is pleased to share details of exciting new healthcare projects we are working on. Take a look at what we've got on the boards with highlights of our latest projects in-progress.

UC Davis Health System University Tower Central Processing Unit Remodel

CPU Sterile Supply Work Flow

Renovation of the existing UC Davis Health System University Tower Central Processing Unit, which includes the relocation and replacement of washing and sterilization equipment and the associated plumbing, electrical and mechanical work. This project also includes the addition of a new IDF room, compressed air closet, DI water manifold closet, new rated corridor and update to existing staff locker and toilet rooms to comply with the 2013 California Building Code.

The purpose of the project is to increase the capacity sterile processing. The hospital plans to open additional pediatric and more common invasive surgical units in the near future. By re-opening the old Central Processing Unit (CPU) that was replaced on the opening of the SESP, the hospital hopes to increase its capacity and productivity.

UC Davis Health System Pavilion New 3.0T MRI Installation

In April 2015, Nacht & Lewis completed a feasibility study for the expansion of the MRI imaging suite in the recently completed Healthcare Pavilion Building at UC Davis Health System. Design feasibility study services included architectural planning and detailed site investigations, structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, vibration, and acoustical analysis, magnetic field interference and shielding analysis and RF shielding recommendations.

The MRI project at UCDHS involves the construction of a new Siemens Skyra 3.0T MRI imaging suite in an existing radiology support space directly adjacent to the existing MRI imaging service area in the newer Pavilion Building. The space will feature a “sentient” patient experience system to allow patients some control of their imaging environment to relax them and provide better imaging outcomes. The location of the new MRI is optimal because it will allow for a control area in close proximity to the existing MRIs with shared existing patient prep areas while maintaining the general character of the safety zones around the MRI service area.
