Spire assisted a contractor with schedule, cost and productivity monitoring, analysis, and projections. The entire Stanford University Medical Center Renewal Project is estimated to cost $5 billion, including $2 billion for the Stanford hospital, and $1.1 billion for the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital expansion. Scheduled to open to patients in 2018, the 824,500-square-foot facility will include 368 rooms, oversized windows to afford patients a view of the surrounding foothills, a rooftop helipad, 17 operating rooms, 5 gardens, walking trails, a meditation room, and a new Level 1 trauma center with 58 treatment bays that will be 3 times the size of the current emergency department. The building will be connected to the current hospital by a bridge and tunnel. Spire’s responsibilities included development of a baseline schedule and schedule updates, schedule review and monitoring and productivity, and cost assessments and projections. Spire’s deliverables provided project executives with visibility into project performance and risks that supported informed decision making to ensure the project was delivered on time and under budget.
