Methodist Hospital Stone Oak

(SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS) –The Methodist Hospital Stone Oak was coined the ‘hospital of the future’ during initial construction in 2009. Designed to evolve with the community’s needs, this hospital is a 300,000 square-foot (SF) facility with 132 beds and allows for expansion to 350 beds.

It was the first facility in the Stone Oak area to be built in over a decade. An office building adjacent to the hospital encompasses 120,000 SF and includes up to 30 administrative offices, two conference rooms, a chapel and dining area. Floors two through five are shell space with room for additional offices.

Services provided at the hospital include:

  • Emergency Care
  • Obstetrics
  • New Born Intensive Care
  • Cardiology
  • Neurosurgery
  • General Surgery
  • Orthopedics

From the start of the project, Brandt offered design improvements and suggested ways to save money without sacrificing quality or technology. Prefabrication is one way we offer a cost savings to our clients. Prefabrication is not a new concept. However, thanks to increased building information modeling (BIM) proficiency and the growth of green construction, this practice has become a critical trend in our industry. Prefabrication is responsible for improved project schedules, reduced costs and budgets, increased site safety, and limited site waste.

In the shop’s controlled environment, our San Antonio team prefabricated approximately 7,000 hangers for the hospital’s plumbing and mechanical systems. Our team’s improved productivity and efficiency resulted in a huge savings. Brandt was also responsible for the temperature controls and firestopping of its work. The project included approximately 577,000 lbs. of sheet metal and 206,500 linear feet of plumbing piping.
