The Hospital General de México (HGM) currently handles more than 700,000 consultations and 30,000 operations per year, with steadily growing patient numbers.
Therefore, in 2009 the HGM launched an ambitious project to modernize and verticalize its facilities in order to increase its service capacity.
SENER was awarded the contracts for project supervision and the construction of units 310 and 501, with an execution period of 20 months. Unit 310 will house the transplant unit, operating rooms, intensive care, gastroenterology and in-patient care, with 12,000 m2 of floor space. As for the 9.000 m2 Unit 501, it will be home to the pathology, genetics, and genomics units, and will house the Center for Perfecting Medical Techniques.
One innovation in this project is that the BIM technology and the use of the SENEt document management software given to the client have been incorporated into the supervision process. With the BIM system, models of the units are created during the construction process based on the blueprints in order to obtain the project's volumetrics, identify possible points of interference and determine the phases of construction. This produces a virtual view of the project's status, giving real time information on the progress and volumes completed, providing projected schedules and identifying any possible deviations from the plans. The BIM system also makes it possible to include any modifications made during construction so that the information can be kept up to date in order to assist the decision making process.
