North Memorial and Fairview Health Services partnered to design and construct a new hospital that serves Maple Grove and the greater northwest metro area. Dunham provided mechanical and electrical engineering design for a new 225,000 SF hospital, which offers both inpatient and outpatient services. Our work included master planning of the campus infrastructure, mindful of the need for future expansion, and long-term maintenance. The design of the central plant was a vital element of the project. The 130‑bed hospital includes 10 labor and delivery (LDR) rooms, 36 post‑partum rooms, a 36‑bed nursery with 12 Level II care bassinets, 5 ORs, 10‑bed PACU, 19‑bed patent care center, Emergency Care Center with 14 private rooms, stabilization rooms, observation rooms, behavioral health rooms, medical lab, imaging center, and pharmacy. The project also included a 110‑seat cafeteria and servery space. This highly sustainable project was designed to Green Guide for Health Care standards and is registered with the U.S. Green Building Council.
Following the completion of the new hospital, Dunham provided engineering services to fit-out the 4th floor and expand the birthing, post-partum, and nursery spaces. The 45,000 SF fit-out included 46 patient rooms, nursing and support spaces, physical therapy, conference rooms, locker rooms, and offices. The birthing expansion converted six post-partum rooms into new birthing rooms and moved the well-baby nursery to the existing physical therapy space. This renovation provided five additional nursery locations and additional isolation rooms.
Expansion and Remodel
This Maple Grove Hospital expansion consists of a Mother Baby program, materials management, emergency department, observation rooms, and a pharmacy. The 150,000 SF expansion includes three levels with a mechanical room penthouse. A 55,000 SF remodel consists of NICU, c-section, post-partum rooms, radiology, interventional radiology, and a new emergency department. The project also adds a new helipad to the roof of the hospital. Dunham is currently providing mechanical and electrical design services for this project.
