Sometimes when we talk about numbers and buildings it’s your typical few key facts – square feet, construction cost, date of completion – and, we lose sight of the humanistic data. It is especially interesting to see the depth of intense human collaboration for the creation and eventual occupancy of a building as programmatically complex as a hospital – a place where hundreds more people will be treated and cared for once the building is operational.
The Binney Building for Children’s Hospital Boston is a ten-story urban infill building that contains much needed expansion space for the ED, Radiology, Same Day Surgery, Neurology, Pharmacy and four floors of new inpatient beds in alignment with the existing hospital. The building has prominent street frontages along Binney Street and the main drop-off for Children’s Hospital.
Before occupants and users enter the building for the first time to administer or receive healthcare, many hundreds of people worked to bring this building to life. And because of the expansion, will offer augmented services. Today we look at a snapshot.
