Case Study 2.1
Colorado Convention Center ‐ Alternative Care Facility
This course will discuss the challenges and successes in designing and constructing a 2,000‐Bed Alternative Care Facility located at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. This facility is different from others built around the country as the fire department required the team to use fire‐resistant building materials. In the end, the team used 25,330 sheets of drywall, 35,695 metal studs, six miles (14 tons) of piped oxygen, over 20 miles of conduit for emergency power, a nurse call station to each patient room and many more materials; All delivered in 18 days.
After participating, attendees will understand how:
1. Trust, teamwork and collaboration from all design, construction and trade partners including the USACE to design and build an alternate care facility hospital in 18 days.
2. Decisions were made based on low cost and availability of local materials.
3. Modularity, repeatability, assembly line production, and off‐site fabrication contributed to the success of the project.
4. Managing communication and being able to adjust direction at a moment’s notice was one of the most important success factors of this project.
