Children's Hospital New Orleans Expansion and Renovation New Orleans, Louisiana

Louisiana’s largest pediatric hospital began a massive renovation and expansion of its hospital campus in 2018 to provide new and expanded spaces that are resilient and energy-efficient to better serve CHNOLA’s pediatric patients. The hospital expansion adds a four-story medical tower with an expanded emergency department, a surgical and perioperative suite, a 28-bed cardiac intensive care unit, and shell space for future growth. The hospital renovation includes expanding the pharmacy, clinic, and exam rooms; consolidating clinical lab function; and converting space into a procedure suite, materials management, and clinical areas. 

 

To keep the hospital fully operational during construction, the team developed a plan to reroute the utilities without disrupting patient care. TLC also designed a new fiber backbone system to serve all 19 telecommunication rooms and developed new campus fiber loop to connect outlying buildings around campus and provide a redundant fiber ring which was desperately needed. TLC designed 13 new telecommunication rooms and cabling infrastructure and coordinated phasing, so the network was operational as each area was turned over to the Owner. CHNOLA also used the capital project to implement new enterprise-level, state of the art, CCTV, access control, Distributed Antenna Systems, and audio-visual systems.
