OSU Mammography, Gynecologic Oncology
The nearly 24,400 SF project for The Ohio State University consisted of three projects: the OSU Mammography suite, a total renovation of the OSU Gynecologic Oncology Center and a connector between the two buildings.
The Mammography Center was the initial build-out in an adjacent building to the existing Gynecologic Oncology Center. The connector started soon after to connect the suite to Gynecologic Oncology. The Tenby Construction team ran into some challenges while working in the Gynecologic Oncology suite, as they had to find solutions to stay open during construction, while insuring a dustless environment in which all mechanical services operated while patients received treatment. The Gynecologic Oncology suite was ultimately completed in four phases in order to remain open throughout construction for patients. The build-out also took place during the COVID-19 pandemic, creating more challenges for the project.
The Tenby Way
The team worked with OSU and the design team to alternate HVAC equipment and relocate phase boundaries in order to provide an installation that minimally effected the operation of the clinic, and ultimately led to savings for the owner. Despite the challenges throughout the project, including supply delays due to the pandemic, Tenby Construction was able to complete the project as initially scheduled.
