The Hplex Solution
Acting as owner representative, Hplex assisted the Executive Leadership Team in Springfield to select and onboard key members of the team and manage both vendors, designers, the construction manager, and end-users to open a facility ahead of schedule and while staying within budget.
During pre-development, it became apparent that the property sat within several jurisdictional zones, requiring approvals from several agencies in order to start development. These approval entities included the FAA, ODOT, and offices from several townships and counties. Hplex worked closely with these agencies and the Project Team to gain approval within a short timeline to allow construction to begin and advance before winter weather conditions became detrimental to the project schedule.
Hplex worked closely with the design and construction team and key Mercy Health stakeholders through preliminary master planning, design documents, actual construction, and owner building activation activities. Within project phases, Hplex provided project management before and during construction, budget and schedule management, equipment coordination, and operational hospital team coordination leading to opening of the facility. The total project took just over a year from the time the project was funded to opening the doors to see patients.
