As program and construction manager, Vanir oversaw the major renovation and new construction program at five state hospitals. It began in 1986 and consisted of 45 separate projects that involved renovating and expanding patient areas, offices, utility systems and seismic upgrades.
Our team developed extensive physical plant needs assessments at each of the hospitals and prepared detailed cost estimates that were presented to the Legislature. Continuous interaction with the Office of the Legislative Analyst and the Department of Finance resulted in Legislative approval of capital outlay requests for all 45 projects.
Our program management plan served as the roadmap for administering the large capital outlay program, and in turn, the budget, schedule and cash flow were closely monitored and rigorously managed. All projects were completed as scheduled and within budget.
