The 35,000 sf Mauzy-Phillips Center was built on unsuitable soils and required heavy undercut work and reconstruction in order to achieve a workable building pad. The site was an old mine waste pit which included mine extract and poor soils. Because of this the building pad had to be undercut 12’ and new good soil along with additional stone was required to be backfilled and compacted so that foundation work could begin. The MOB site was located in the rear of the Blue Ridge Regional Hospital Campus and required new utilities to be brought to the building site. In order to do this we had to coordinate with the hospital lane closures and parking lot shutdowns to keep the Hospital operations ongoing and unaffected, which we did successfully. In addition to the retaining wall we encountered 25 lost days of work due to bad weather and still met our original finish date for the core and shell of May 1, 2015. We were able to overlap the core and shell and upfit construction in order to turn the upfit work over to Mission Health one month after the core and shell was completed. In order to do this it required a lot of planning and work upfront to provide temporary environmental control inside the building without having the exterior completed. The facility consisted of an Xray, Ortho Clinic, and Laboratory Services on the first floor including physicians practice areas and exam rooms and the second floor included and Endoscopy Suite with procedure rooms and holding bays along with exam rooms and physicians practice areas.
