Project Overview:

Master Planning activities for this Upstate New York Medical Center nestled in New York State’s Finger Lakes region ranged from reviewing existing site utilities, investigating space use /occupancy of the campus buildings, and verifying the mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) system configuration.  The Master Plan also addressed the land-use, facilities, infrastructure, and Enhanced-Use Lease (EUL) opportunities associated with the entire campus.

Major Project work included the construction of a new 120-bed nursing home facility and a new 50-bed domiciliary/residential rehab facility (132,000 building GSF), along with the renovation of Buildings 1, 2, 3, 4 and 9 (290,791 building GSF) for outpatient services.  Additionally, Buildings 33 and 34 were demolished to provide space for the new Community Living Center within the existing courts.

Project Fact:

This Master Planning effort and ensuing project scopes fundamentally changed the nature and character of the VA Canandaigua campus.
