The Penn State University College of Medicine launched an ambitious $1 billion capital campaign to greatly expand and upgrade its medical, teaching, and housing facilities to solidify the institution’s place among the top medical colleges in the nation. In 2002, the institution engaged SBS to provide capital project management and building commissioning services.  The intent of this contract was to enable the institution to obtain highly specialized professional services for a lengthy list of projects that have been technically complex, require exacting coordination because of the operating hospital and research environment, and have in large part moved forward on accelerated delivery schedules due to the loss of revenue when beds are taken off-line.

SBS has interacted with nearly every major department in the Medical Center.  Most recently, SBS undertook the management of a multi-faceted project to relocate 25% of the inpatient units within the hospital while upgrading existing spaces and realigning personnel in a manner more conductive to the delivery of medical treatment.  The project required the delivery of Project Management and Building Commissioning services within a highly sensitive and complex active medical environment.  This project serves the hospital’s Cancer Treatment Center.  During construction, SBS facilitated multiple constructability reviews with members of the department in review of the proposed design (particularly the HVAC system) as well as doing field reviews of the work in progress, providing commissioning services and organizing the maintenance staff training. 

Current and recent commissioning engagements include:

  • Penn State Cancer Institute
  • 1st Floor Hospital South Addition Renovation
  • Epilepsy Monitoring Unit Relocation & Consolidation
  • Heart & Vascular/Surgical Intensive Care Unit Renovations
  • Bio Medical Research Office to Laboratory Conversion
  • Organic Synthesis Laboratories
  • Pulmonary Function Test Lab/Neurology Department
