Central DuPage Hospital
The Central DuPage Hospital Campus project was a 55-acre redevelopment and expansion of the existing hospital buildings, parking structures, roadways and utilities; existing utilities and buildings were demolished to make way for the expansion. BLA provided master stormwater management studies as redevelopment of the campus required stormwater detention under current ordinances. Floodplain/floodway analysis was completed as the campus borders the North Branch of the DuPage River and work required impacts to floodplain areas. All aspects of redevelopment were looked at from detention calculations/design, drainage calculations, utility studies, parking lot design, roadway design and grading.
BLA prepared construction documents and specifications for the various phases of redevelopment on the hospital campus. Design considerations included design of stormwater management facilities, demolition plans for existing structures, floodplain/floodway remapping, revisions to roadway alignment and geometry, expansion of existing parking facilities, pavement design, grading plans, analysis of traffic patterns, preservation of emergency vehicle access throughout construction, handicapped accessibility, preservation of pedestrian traffic through the construction zones, preparation of project budgets, coordination with contractors, construction assistance and coordination with state and local government agencies in securing required construction permits.
