Banner Health | Multiple Projects

Overview of projects

The Vanir team oversaw renovation and expansion work for Banner Health from 2006 to 2016 through a staff augmentation contract. We managed the design and construction of many clinical and nonclinical projects at six Banner Hospitals and numerous outpatient/corporate facilities located throughout the metro Phoenix Valley.

A few project examples include:

  • Banner Desert Medical Center: Vanir managed a remodel of an outpatient treatment center, construction of a pedestrian bridge and the renovation of three CT scanner rooms.
  • Thunderbird Medical Center: We led a pharmacy renovation and expansion, including new direct compounding/anterooms, a pharmaceutical refrigeration unit, an automated tablet counter, a pneumatic tube system and office space.
  • Banner Health Corporate Relocation: Our team successfully relocated 1,000 Banner Health employees by expediting the planning, design and interior build-out of 14 floors. We developed the budget and bid documents, negotiated contracts and managed the procurement for $2.5 million of FF&E.
  • Banner University Medical Center/Phoenix: Vanir assisted the A/E team in planning and developing the construction phasing and documentation for a new four-story emergency department, a 733-bed tower and a five-story parking garage. A small sampling of other projects we provided construction management services for include a new sickle cell anemia infusion clinic, a pharmacy renovation, a sleep center and lobby renovations.
