Bernards and Colombo Construction Company formed a joint venture to provide construction management services for this new critical-access hospital situated in the rural area of Tehachapi, California.
The 20-bed facility, which replaces a hospital that no longer met California safety standards, features a 16-bed medical surgical patient unit; intensive care unit; obstetrical LDR and postpartum facilities; emergency, anesthesia, radiology, dietetic, pharmaceutical and clinical laboratory services; central sterile supply; administrative space; and a central plant.
The project was subject to the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) approval processes which resulted in over 1,000 drawings and documents.
Bernards’ digital document control process revealed critical missing details, revision symbols and date stamps that manual scanning could have missed, while saving nearly 400 hours of QA/QC review time.
