  12. 12. Site & Building Evaluation (Physical Attributes) Construction Type Covered Canopy – Patient Drop off/Pick up Compliant Elevator Accessible Parking and Site Ambulance and Fire Dept. Access Common Areas/Patient Friendly Access Separated Use (vertical and horizontal) Building Envelope MultiStory Configurations-Patient Services on more than 1 level Egressing Access Control Hazardous Locations Zoning and Use Designations Shared Services (Space and Systems)

  15. 15. Ground Floor
  16. 16. Roof Plan
  17. 17. Site & Building Evaluation CHECKLIST 1. Need to have a covered canopy or awning the will cover a car for patient drop off and pickup near the main entry point. Canopy or awning will be submitted for approval. Flatwork outside this entry could also be required to be accessible and provide accessible route from drop off/pickup to entry and discharge areas. Will a patient drop off and pick up area be possible? 2. Need location along back side of building adjacent to ASC where the diesel emergency generator can be placed. Will possibly need to access drives for refueling and add bollards or screen wall. A dumpster will also be required. A service area for deliveries of supplies and medical gas will also be preferred. 3. Will possibly want to add windows in facade at Operating Rooms and other Business areas. Additional doors for egressing may also be required on the ground level. 4. Will want to modify some storefronts for installation of new door systems including the main entry on the surgery center side. Main entry door will be upgraded with design approved by landlord. 5. At least 2 exterior doors from the ASC will need to be min 44" wide for wheelchairs. 6. Consider getting a certain number of dedicated patient parking spaces near entry (where applicable) 7. Ensure that all site elements and entry points are accessible as per TAS requirements. 8. Ensure that adequate water pressure is available to support the the ASC when part of larger development. Many times an ASC domestic water line is larger to handle the larger fixture demand.
  18. 18. Site & Building Evaluation CHECKLIST 9. Ensure that we are able to locate new hvac equipment on the roof, penetrate the roof, and upgrade structure to support units 10. When Multistory building with ASC on 2nd Level, Ensure that provisions are made to allow us to and accessible 5'x5' minimum cab size gurney elevator within lease space serving ASC if ASC is going to be located on 2nd floor. . 11 Ensure we have adequate electrical service and capacity to serve the ASC. A surgery center requires a larger service than a typical lease space 12. Verify construction Type. Is the building steel? If so, is it fireproofed or wrapped to be a rated assembly? Is there anything unique about the construction type like tilt wall exterior walls or post tensioned slab. 13. Verify if the building has a fireline/riser to the building if the building is fully sprinklered. 14. Verify if possibility of modifying and or reinforcing floor /roof structure for new rooftop equipment and clearances from existing exhaust fans and vents that are existing. 15. Make sure we are not in a flood zone. 16. Verify designed parking ratio. 17. Verify that stairwells are strategically located so more than 1 means of egress is possible from 2nd floor occupancy. 18. Verify Structural Clearances (floor to floor heights). 15 foot top of steel preferred. 19. Are there any nuisance areas surrounding the site, high power lines, underground fuel tanks....etc.
