The BUMCP parking garage consisted of the complete demolition of the 4 story parking structure with a hospital and patient tower both within 100 yards along with the computer system distribution hub for the entire campus that had to remain in full working order in the basement.
Project Specific Challenges
The challenges on this project were vast in number, the daily challenges included:
The fact that the hospital and patient tower were so close in proximity
The IDF room which controlled the entire campus’s computer system was in the basement directly under the 4 story structure that was to be demolished
The IDF was also dust and vibration sensitive
We had very little real estate in which to move equipment and stockpile material and working around other trades was a daily struggle
