The need for a new hospital building at Community Memorial Hospital (CMH) necessitated the relocation of several existing uses in structures adjacent to the existing hospital. One of those uses was a cancer clinic. This project resulted in the construction of a new, modern facility located at the corner of Brent Street and Loma Vista Road. An existing parking lot and vacant houses were converted to the new facility and Jensen Design & Survey, Inc. was responsible for the civil engineering to relocate, reconstruct existing building facilities, construct new buildings, and relocate existing utilities in a collaborative environment with the Hospital and project architect Rasmussen & Associates.
Additionally, to meet the latest Federal requirements for hospital safety, CMH contracted our civil engineering and survey services to assist in the civil improvements and redevelopment of surrounding areas associated with the new 6-story hospital structure. Our services are part of a larger design/build team including a large Hospital consultant from Missouri and several local firms with long-standing experience with CMH. As part of the local team, we are responsible for improvement designs necessary to prepare the site for the new main hospital building, as well as oversight of the proposed main building design. Some of the design improvements include a new city park, redevelopment of an existing retail center, parking lot, new city streets, and the future development of ancillary use buildings and parking structure.
Specific survey services throughout the project have included establishing control, boundary establishment, obtaining topographic information, base mapping, construction staking, ALTA surveys, and preparing as-builts of the projects. The control was established by some or all of the following methods: tying into existing property line and right of way survey monuments, other surveys’ control and establishing state planes coordinates at a local level.
