Dayton Children’s Hospital Tower
The Kleingers Group performed surveying, civil engineering, and landscape architecture design services for this $140 million, 260,000 SF, eight-story patient tower at the Dayton Children’s Valley Street campus. Leading up to the project, Kleingers was also on a team which conducted master planning for the entire Dayton Children’s Hospital network.
In order to achieve the goal of constructing an eight-story tower within the old courtyard, several enabling projects needed to be completed including demolition of the existing building and relocation of the main water line while maintaining services. The water main relocation involved tapping an existing 48” water main with an 8” main and extending the main past the new building and reconnecting into the hospital loop. The existing water main was then removed to allow for the construction of the Data/Gen building. This work required coordination efforts with the City of Dayton Water Engineering, City of Dayton Fire Department, Ohio EPA, and all the consultants working on the tower project.
Kleingers also provided design for the Central Utility Plant associated with the campus. The plant houses the relocated IT department and serves the main building along with an eight-story patient-tower addition. Kleingers provided zoning and site-planning services, site design, and utility relocation planning for the project. Because the site was constrained, carefully coordination was required to help maintain the flow of existing traffic—including ambulance traffic—through the site.
In addition to the design work, Kleingers worked with the City of Dayton Civil Engineering Department and ODOT District 7 to allow a temporary road to be constructed in the right of way of State Route 4 to access all areas of the site to avoid conflicts with construction activities as construction progressed.
