Banner Health | Multiple Projects

Overview of projects

The Vanir team has been overseeing renovation and expansion work for Banner Health since 2006—managing 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: We provided staff augmentation services for several projects, including a remodel of an outpatient treatment center, construction of a pedestrian bridge, and the renovation of three CT scanner rooms.
  • Thunderbird Medical Center: Vanir led a pharmacy renovation and expansion, including new direct compounding/ante rooms, 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: 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.
