UMMS Weinberg Building Fit-Out

Location: Baltimore, Maryland Client: University of Maryland Medical System

JMT provided full construction project management services during the fit-out of the upper three floors of a downtown hospital.

When the seven-story Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Building was constructed as part of the University of Maryland Medical System, the upper three floors initially were left vacant to be fit out at a later date. Once a program was finalized, JMT was brought on to help manage the project from design to post-occupancy, including:

  • 7th floor, a 29 bed Medical Intensive Care Unit
  • 6th floor, a 15 bed Cardio-Thoracic Intensive Care Unit and a 15 bed Telemetry Step-Down Unit
  • 5th Floor, a 32 bed Medical/Surgical Acute Care Unit, one of the largest units in the hospital

JMT managed the design, construction, medical equipment procurement/installation, and occupancy phases of this project.  During the design phase JMT managed the Architect/Engineer and the various user groups. Each of these members had different goals that needed to be understood and incorporated into the design, managed during construction, and achieved during occupancy/turnover.  A combination of new and existing medical equipment was also necessary to open and operate these units.  JMT was responsible for managing the purchase of all new equipment and the coordination of cataloging the existing equipment that would be relocated. JMT worked with the owner's procurement staff to monitor the progress and ensure just-in-time delivery of the equipment.  Coordination of infrastructure requirements was needed during the design and construction phase.

The occupancy of this project was phased to stagger the opening of each of the three floors.  Both the construction contract and CM services contract came in on or under budget, and each floor was completed as scheduled.
