The University of Pennsylvania's $1.5 billion medical pavilion project in Philadelphia is being managed with lean methods that rely on relationships, shared knowledge and common goals, according to an article on the Construction Dive website.
The 1.5 million-square-foot Penn Medicine Pavilion will include 500 private rooms, an inpatient care unit for heart and vascular patients, neurology and neurosurgery units, a cancer center and an emergency department.
The project is using prefabrication for time-intensive construction like mechanical, plumbing and drywall work.
Five-hundred-and-fifty-nine mechanical racks, 504 bathroom pods and 47 zone valve boxes for medical gas are being constructed in a warehouse two miles away from the building site.
