allowed for efficiencies in the management
of materials, personnel and work that an
off-site prefabrication warehouse would not
permit. Multiple variations of the headwalls were constructed, including framing,
plumbing, electrical, ducting, med-gas and
vacuum systems, with a final device count
of about 20 per headwall.
"We built a template for each different
headwall variation, which we test-fit in the
field to guarantee the placement and size of
the cut-outs for the multitude of devices,"
the company says. "That template was then
used to fabricate the finish wood surface
using a CNC machine. By using this method
instead of manual fabrication, we saved
hundreds of hours while ensuring quality
was never compromised."
Haselden Construction worked closely
with EYP Health, explaining it is easier to
start with design when it comes to prefabricating. "Nearly a decade ago, Haselden
identified that prefabricating major scopes
of work would create a condensed schedule guaranteeing speed to market for our
customers," Haselden says.
During the design process, Haselden Construction's virtual design and construction
says a strong relationship
with UCHealth helped it to finish
the Longs Peak Hospital on time.

department combined BIM 360 Field & Glue
with QR codes to "take it to the next level
of facility modeling," Haselden says. "We

facility manager can come up to the room
and scan the QR code with their phone or
iPad to get all the information about what's
in the room."
Focused on Safety
Safety remained the No. 1 priority onsite. "One of our No. 1 values is really the
safety of everyone," Haselden says. "In the
construction industry, safety is changing
and there's been a shift to give a voice to
the worker, allowing the workers on-site to
put their hand up if they see a problem and
someone will listen."
Haselden Construction implemented a
safety program it calls "I Got Your Six," which
means, "I got your back." The company gives
safety bucks for "I Got Your Six" moments
and rewards workers for identifying potential hazards on site. "We make a big deal
about it because if they see an unsafe situation and bring it to our attention we can
