We were on the team that facilitated a property swap between Stamford Hospital and Charter Oak Communities to make two developments a reality. As part of the swap, Stamford Hospital gained a portion of the Vidal Court property for the hospital’s new campus expansion including a new healthcare pavilion. We provided planning, civil engineering and land surveying services which translated to fluency in applications for Master Plan changes, Zone changes, Text changes, Site Plan approvals, and the discontinuance of City Streets. Construction logistics were critical to the design allowing the hospital to stay fully operational during the campus and facility improvements. The project is registered with the U.S. Green Building Council under the LEED® rating system and is incorporating strategies from the Green Guide for Health Care. The Charter Oak Communities revitalization of Vidal Court includes a replacement of the existing 216 units and an increase in the total number of units to 350 on multiple sites.
Modernization of the hospital included demolishing most of the existing facility and building a new hospital. Evaluated the sanitary sewage flow and the existing infrastructure to accept flow and designed new sanitary sewers. Designs of offsite road improvements were required as were State and Local permits. Construction phasing was critical.
Services were provided for the renovation and reuse of an existing, 120,000 SF general office building. The proposal called for a renovation by YNHH that would include an Emergency Department, Diagnostic Radiology Imaging Center, Outpatient Geriatric Care Facility and Medical Offices. In addition to building improvements, the proposal also called for the reconfiguration of a portion of the existing, 512 space surface parking area and onsite access road; utility upgrades including a new 350 kW backup generator. Survey services included preparation of an existing conditions Property and Topographic Survey of the 7.5 acre site as well as a Zoning Location Survey depicting the proposed improvements. Engineering services included preparation Site Engineering Plans depicting the design of site grading, drainage, paving, utilities and erosion controls. We also provide site planning services relative to the parking lot reconfiguration, truck articulation, etc. We provided services associated with obtaining approvals from the local Planning and Zoning & Inland Wetlands Commissions. Finally, we provided minor engineering and survey services during construction.
