South Addition & Patient Tower Expansion

Athens Regional Medical Center

Location: Athens, Georgia

Date Completed: 2011

Project Cost: $70 million

Construction Cost: $50 million

Architect: HKS, Inc

General Contractor: McCarthy Building Companies

The South Tower project is a 175,000 sq. ft. addition to the main hospital which creates significant expansion space for Cardiology, Radiology, Endoscopy, and the hospital’s Laboratory. The addition of 58 new patient rooms via a two-level vertical expansion of the existing patient tower increases the total number of licensed beds to 359. The hospital is connected to a Medical Office Building via an elevated and conditioned bridge.

Construction commenced before a similar sized project was completed, requiring careful planning and execution in order to minimize disruptions to hospital operations and avoid inconveniencing patients and visitors.

Collins Project Management was engaged at the start of the project to provide total project management services including determination of the best delivery strategies, project team selection, management of the design and preconstruction process, preconstruction planning, oversight of construction activities, and move planning and coordination.
