Fishbeck provided full A/E services to support the renovation of a 980-sf operating room at the University of Michigan Samuel and Jean Frankel Cardiovascular Center. The room features Siemens Artis-Q single-plane interventional imaging equipment, six Skytron booms, Storz Integration, Mac-Lab Hemodynamic Recording Systems, and various owner-provided equipment. In this project, Fishbeck used augmented reality (AR) to convey the 3D detailed spatial relationships and 360-degree turns to our client and stakeholders. This technology is delivered via a smartphone or tablet, allowing the stakeholder or contractors to view the proposed layouts of equipment and utilities.
The project was constructed in three phases allowing for uninterrupted use of the surrounding areas and support spaces. Key considerations include interim wayfinding, infection control measures, life safety code compliance during construction, maintenance access routes during construction for emergency egress, and transporting materials and products through the sterile corridor to the operating room suites.
