The unique design of this major new research-focused Ability Center is about creativity and inventing. This rehabilitation hospital embraces an iterative rather than linear process of clinical care and recovery medicine and integrating the intellectual with the artistic. The SRAL transforms the entire structure of their organization and exerts strong influence on the field of rehabilitation to adopt translational methods, integrating science directly with clinical care to achieve never-before-possible outcomes for patients.
The facility consists of 5 innovation centers: (1) Brain, (2) Spinal Cord, (3) Nerve, Muscle & Bone, (4) Pediatric Rehabilitation, (5) and Cardiac Rehabilitation. It will have 1.2 million square feet of floor space, including 900,000 square feet dedicated to clinical/research programs and a capacity of 242 beds.
For this project, E Cube provided a comprehensive base-building commissioning process modelled after the LEED Fundamental Commissioning Prerequisite and Enhanced Commissioning Credit. E Cube also provided renovation and interiors build-out commissioning services for subsequent projects involving inpatient suites and clinical departments. Further, E Cube provided smoke control sequence testing services every year since 2019. This process included a comprehensive test of HVAC systems response to fire alarm in all the facility’s multiple smoke control zones.
