Peter Basso Associates provided Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing design services for Sparrow Ionia Hospital, a total replacement acute access hospital comprised of 63,500 square feet of floor area on two levels. The facility includes 22 inpatient beds--including ICU and isolation rooms--two operating rooms with provisions for additional operating and endoscopy rooms, emergency department, diagnostic and treatment areas, radiology, laboratory, kitchen, and all required support spaces and functions for a complete critical access hospital. The infrastructure has been designed to accommodate a future 40,000 square foot medical office building that will be attached to the hospital.
The project has been designed to be LEED certified and under a tight budget. PBA worked closely with the Construction Manager as part of the design-build team to assure that the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems were in line with the project budget, while still meeting the high quality standards PBA delivers to its health care clients.
