This project involved converting a basement shell into a hybrid Operating Room and microsurgery lab. The hybrid OR featured a Trumpf surgical table, Artis Zeego C-Arm, MultiTaction display monitors, surgical lights, and med gas booms. Each microsurgical station was outfitted with a wall-mounted microscope, vacuum snorkel, sink with foot controls, endoscope, wall-mounted monitor, skull clamp, mobile instrument cart, and more customized features.

At the Center for the Future of Surgery (CFS), surgeons and scientists are advancing surgical techniques by investigating, developing, testing, and teaching procedures that are revolutionizing the field of medicine.

Planning Process

The Align team spent many hours pre-investigating, planning, clash-detecting, and coordinating. Overhead and in-wall MEP systems, as well as a supporting infrastructure, were installed to accommodate the small space. Because of their advance planning, not only did the team meet all the critical installation dates, but they also were able to streamline workflows to deliver this complex project on time, even working double shifts as necessary, without sacrificing quality.
