Life: Enhanced

Elliot Hospital Parking Garage
Manchester, NH

Providing outstanding medical care can be a challenge when patients face obstacles in physically and punctually arriving at the facility. The Elliot Health System, the largest provider of comprehensive healthcare services in Southern New Hampshire, faced just such a challenge. To be able to achieve their mission of wellness, healing, and compassionate service, improvements had to be made in providing patients and visitors with easier access.

Collaboration

Elliot facility officials worked with Fuss & O’Neill, the architect, and a structural engineer to design a unique parking structure that would work with the terrain, provide suitable access to each level of the facility, and meet additional on-site challenges. During construction of the parking structure, at the request of general contractor, the design-build team worked on site in the same field office one day each week to allow for hands-on collaboration and communication. This “Lean” approach to design and construction aligned the budgeting and scheduling needs of the Elliot Health System to produce the highest quality results while cutting waste in real time.

Impact

The new garage provides more parking for Elliot staff while opening up parking spots closer to the front entrance for patients and visitors. This added level of access was a necessity for one of New Hampshire’s busiest medical facilities. The added parking and access have provided immediate benefits, and will also help accommodate additional patients that will visit the 20,000 ft2 Cancer Center addition, once it is fully constructed and opened.
