Chicago Faucets’ products selected for prestigious hospital’s major expansion project


The Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Pavilion and Glickman Tower

The Challenge

The Cleveland Clinic has completed the most significant expansion project in its organization’s history with the Sydell & Arnold Miller Family Pavilion and the Glickman Tower. The 1.3 million-square-foot pavilion and tower, a $504 million project, consolidates health care units that were spread throughout the campus in Cleveland, Ohio. The pavilion, housing the Heart & Vascular Institute, is the largest cardiovascular facility in the nation, consolidating all of the clinic’s cardiac functions. The state-of-the-art facility features a multi-story lobby; 278 patient rooms, including 110 ICU beds and 12 VIP suites; 16 operating rooms; 155 physicians’ offices; and a diagnostic testing wing.
Adjoining the Miller Pavilion, the Glickman Tower is the home of the Urological & Kidney Institute, the largest and fastest growing surgical center on the campus. The tower includes a conference room with telemedicine and satellite video and imaging capabilities, a health resource center, 74 exam rooms, 21 dialysis rooms with city views, and 20 procedure rooms, of which four are oversized to provide space for large medical teams.

There was one stipulation: the Glickman Tower had to be completed on the exact same day as the Miller Pavilion.

“It was definitely a challenge,” says Grant Anderson, Principal of BR+A, which is headquartered in Boston. “We had to demolish a building adjacent to the new construction and complete design and construction of the Glickman simultaneously with the construction of the Miller Pavilion.”

The Solution

Given the time constraint, BR+A needed faucets that were dependable and reliable. When it came to selecting the faucets to install throughout both facilities, the only faucet manufacturer considered was Chicago Faucets, according to Anderson.786-E3CP_OPTIMIZED
