Healthcare

CCS knows that successful healthcare projects are built on a foundation of smart decisions.

Across our history, we have worked on close to 500 healthcare projects nationally & internationally, encompassing every scale, from infrastructure and landscaping to new bed towers, ICU’s, lab facilities, medical training facilities, power plants, parking structures, and associated systems.

Part of our work is providing clients with the best options and corresponding prices and potential schedules to address the contingencies of existing operations, infection control, and evolving technologies. From renovations of active facilities to new buildings and campus-wide upgrades, CCS is committed to providing guidance and advice relative to approach, cost, and schedule.

Highlights

  • Over 800 healthcare projects nationwide worth in excess of $17 billion

  • Experience ranging from small departmental renovations to complete campuses with individual values from $200,000 to over $1 billion

Our process

Medal, Prize, Reward

Forecasting for success

Beginning with pre-design, CCS ensures that projects are future-proofed to meet tomorrow’s healthcare needs. Our collaborative method includes feasibility studies, design evaluation, review, construction management selection, and accurate total project budgeting. With an awareness of market conditions nationally, our experts assess risks and opportunities from project inception onwards.

Setting a course

We help determine the best method of project delivery, drawing on our deep familiarity with the costs, risks, timeline, and contractual aspects of the procurement process.

CCS has experts that can see clients through the Certificate of Need application and approval on healthcare projects. We have served as the owner’s representative and provided cost management and scheduling services.

A knowledge base

We’re expert communicators, too. CCS helps clients manage sustainability requirements and ensure they’re getting value from their architect, engineer, and construction management team.

We have experts with the formal certifications, including LEED and Energy Star, required to navigate government requirements. CCS rebalances information sharing during design and construction and manages monthly reporting.

Mission critical

Hospitals don’t close for construction. At CCS, we help healthcare providers maintain critical operations with phased projects and detailed operational plans while staying on top of code compliance and board approval. Our innovative approach to phasing allows us to keep patient services operational, for example, the continual use of a heliport pad during a major hospital expansion project.

Building value

During construction, CCS experts apply their experience in cost mitigation, contract negotiations, procurement, value engineering, and change order management and mitigation.
In healthcare renovations, CCS helps ensure critical infection control remains in place during and after construction. Whether it's a major medical center expansion or a new clinic construction, CCS experts are there to optimize results.

CCS is committed to staying current on all the developments and dialogues that are affecting the healthcare sector. This is critical so that we raise any issues that may affect a project’s design or cost in a timely manner so that both the Owner & Architect/Engineering teams are able to effectively respond.

Healthcare sector background & challenges

  • As healthcare transitions from fee-for-service to a value-based reimbursement model, providers are working hard to deliver more services closer to home while controlling costs.

    Meanwhile, the percentage of adults age 65 and older will spike from 46 million currently to almost 90 million by 2050, increasing demand. This comes at a time when a new awareness around wellness also means users expect healthcare facilities to promote their well-being and be kind to the planet. There are also greater efforts among providers to deliver health equity across our population. CCS can help our clients meet the challenge of adapting to this dynamic landscape while managing the fundamentals of design and construction with eyes fixed on the task of realizing world-class healthcare facilities.
