The Saratoga Surgery Center is comprised of a 25,000 sf ground floor surgical suite and 20,000 sf second floor shell designed for future administration/office space. The completion of the building took less than one year facilitated by a fast paced construction schedule. The building houses 5 operating rooms for ambulatory surgery with 2 suites set up for future surgical use. Pre-Operative, Post Operative areas and support spaces are incorporated in the design.
The Building is designed with the most stringent seismic code requirements. These requirements effect the structural steel, mechanical and electrical work, as well as some of the architectural work such as ceiling suspension systems. These seismic provisions incorporated with the high end finishes and quality of construction together help create a breathtaking state of the art facility. During the course of this project, AOW developed a rapport with Saratoga Hospital. AOW’s attention to the Owner’s concerns was evident in the site management. The bordering property owners were vigilant in protecting their property from trespassers.
In a team effort with the architect and owner, AOW took great pains to construct the building as close to the property line as possible without encroaching on the adjacent land. AOW’s relationship with Saratoga Hospital was solidified when the project was completed on time and with no change orders to increase the contract value. Some savings developed throughout the project helped absorb any potential cost increases.
