For over 20 years, Dunham has provided ongoing mechanical and electrical engineering services for Mayo Clinic’s campuses in Rochester, MN. Our services included studies and assessments, space remodels, clinic relocations, vertical expansions, sustainability improvements, infrastructure upgrades, and other campus improvements. We have maintained this relationship with a dedicated team located in Rochester, who are committed to quality design and client service. Our relationships with the Mayo Clinic staff, knowledge of Mayo Clinic standards, and understanding of the campus and facility goals, are critical components of this successful partnership.
Jacobson & Eisenberg OR Fit-out, Phase I + II
We recently worked with the Department of Surgery to develop a master plan and schematic layout for the future Surgical Department at Rochester Methodist Hospital. The goal of the project was to identify and solve facility deficiencies and to identify and communicate innovative surgical facilities design ideas and approaches. Phase I of the Surgery Master Plan our team developed the fit-out and remodel of 50,000 SF of space on the first and second floors of the Jacobson and Eisenberg buildings. This phase includes the addition of 14 operating rooms, five anterooms between sets of ORs, an observation room, as well as scrub rooms. The plan consists of new sterile processing areas and OR support space for surgical functions, including pathology, equipment storage, anesthesia space, and survey space, which includes post-procedure x-ray. Additionally, the project included OR staff locker rooms, staff offices, reception, nursing manager, and director offices. Phase II is currently under design and includes 12 additional operating rooms in the Eisenberg building.
Network Infrastructure Upgrades
This project involved upgrading the telecom switch infrastructure for all buildings and closets that Mayo Clinic owns or leases in Rochester. We evaluated every closet for deficiencies related to not only EIA/TIA standards but also Mayo Clinic standards and industry best practice, then designed and issued construction documents to rectify these issues. Evaluations included Network details, fire alarm, normal and emergency power systems, UPS, and mechanical ventilation systems. Upon completion, we had reviewed nearly 540 individual Telecom/data closets and coordinated corrections to approximately 30% of all spaces.
