The Centennial Hills Hospital project, located in Northwest Las Vegas, was an expansion to the existing hospital. The new, five-story patient tower broke ground in 2019 and was completed in stages, with Phase One opening in the fall of 2020. The expansion included a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit; Intensive Care Unit; Intermediate Unit and Medical Surgical Units; increased capacity to the inpatient pharmacy, surgical services, and the post-anesthesia care unit; and increased the total bed count from 262
Contracted by SR Construction, Raymond completed framing, drywall, painting, taping, wallcovering, plaster, insulation, acoustical ceilings, and EIFS. Sto Panel Technology was used to prefabricate insulated metal wall panels. The prefabrication process began with the use of FRAMECAD to produce lightweight steel framing components that were constructed into panels at an offsite location. Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) was applied, and panels were loaded onto trucks for delivery to the jobsite. Loading of the panels was methodical with panels set in a strategic order, allowing the offloading and installation processes to run smoothly.
The Centennial Hills Hospital project is a great example of the benefits of prefabricated and insulated metal wall panels. The project experienced a reduction in manpower on site, a cleaner jobsite, and a compressed schedule that allowed hospital beds to be available four months earlier than anticipated.
