Broaddus & Associates was retained early in the project planning phases to provide Parkland Health and Hospital System (PHHS) with professional advisory services for a new Ambulatory Surgery Center in Dallas, Texas.
Services included assistance with a Request for Qualifications (RFQ), a Request for Proposal (RFP), review of the responses, assistance in evaluation and final selection of a design-build firm, advice on the contract term and conditions, contract negotiations, and support for any addenda during the pre-bid period.
This project consisted of a two-story building with an area of 75,000 SF. The project was the first one in a $1 billion expansion program envisioned to last approximately 10 years, on 60 acres of land adjacent to the existing hospital.
The Ambulatory Surgery Center project expanded the availability of surgery facilities not requiring in-patient/overnight care. The center included six operating rooms, three endoscopy rooms, patient recovery stations, preadmission testing, examination rooms, and support space. Main support functions, such as linen services, maintenance, and materials management are performed by the main hospital.
