Adult Pediatric Urology

Darland Construction completed the build out of an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) and medical clinic for Omaha physicians group, Adult Pediatric Urology & Urogynecology, PC. Located at 107th & Pacific, the ASC includes three operating rooms (with infrastructure installed to accommodate a fourth), a sterile processing area, and pre/post-operative rooms. The clinic side includes 20 exam rooms, three nurses’ stations, two labs, as well as x-ray and CT suites—both which required complete lead-shielding construction. The ASC and clinic have individual reception and waiting areas while sharing an administrative suite which includes offices, a conference room and physicians’ lounge. 

“We were facing a nearly impossible schedule and a very tight budget,” said project architect Mike Vondal of Marasco & Associates of Denver, Colorado. “Darland delivered on both counts—which was pretty amazing considering some of the structural challenges we ran into while converting an existing office building into a complex surgery center. Darland was extremely proactive and hit the budget and schedule targets, even as unexpected issues arose during construction.”

“The major challenges of the project were installing the infrastructure necessary for the operating rooms within what had previously been a simple office building,” notes Darland project manager Adam Simpson. “For instance, we needed to install overhead air exchange diffusers for the four operating rooms, each which required distinct ductwork. The building was not originally designed to house a surgery center, so the plenum space (ceiling space available for ductwork) was very cramped. We helped the architect and engineer identify some design options and a new, medical-grade flexible ductwork, which allowed us to complete the installation without lowering the ceiling height. There were some complex challenges, but working together we came up with smart solutions that solved all the problems.”
