Design coordination was vital for Cincinnati Children’s newest facility on the west side of Cincinnati. Children’s new facility sits next to the Christ Hospital’s new building, which Bayer Becker provided design services for as well. Providing design for both buildings simultaneously enabled Bayer Becker to maintain both projects schedule. For example, if Children’s design called for a change in their building, Bayer Becker was able to seamlessly make design adjustments on the adjacent site, allowing the projects to continue on schedule. Bayer Becker was the only common consultant between the two projects, so communication with all the necessary parties was also a vital component on the project.
The site also shared a challenging topography. However, Bayer Becker had designed and implemented a series of walls that brought the site to a level grade, so the challenging topography was a non issue for Children’s. In addition to design coordination and extensive grading, Bayer Becker provided design for a 1,815 linear foot sanitary sewer extension along Harrison Avenue that delivered service to the site.
Bayer Becker’s ability to provide design on multiple buildings simultaneously is nothing new. The combination of Bayer Becker’s design expertise, project coordination and knowledge of the regulations necessary for approval were vital to a successful project for all parties involved. Our ability to provide holistic design and see how one project may affect another is something that helps set us apart from the competition.
