Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women Receives HBJ Landmark Award
New Fetal and Maternal Medicine Center of Excellence Recognized for Impact to Community
Texas Children’s Hospital Pavilion for Women was recently honored with a 2012 Landmark Award for Best Medical Project by the Houston Business Journal. The annual award program recognizes influential real estate projects that have made a significant impression on the Houston landscape.
Designed by FKP Architects, Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women is a 15-story, 1.3 million-square-foot facility that includes a 99-bed maternity center, clinics and office spaces built over a four-level sub-grade 1000-car parking garage. The facility connects to Texas Children’s West Tower and Clinical Care Center via a landmark two-story sky bridge, the largest of its kind in Texas. Creating a southern gateway to the world’s largest medical center and expanding the existing Texas Children’s main campus to nearly 5 million square feet, the facility is built to accommodate an initial 5,000 births per year with future expansion to serve an estimated 7,000 births per year. Pavilion for Women marks the culmination of Texas Children’s monumental $1.5 billion Vision 2010 Excellence to Eminence expansion.
In receiving the award, Cris Daskevich, Senior Vice President at Texas Children’s Hospital, commented on the exceptional teamwork and ‘labor of love’ dedication from the project team. Other project team members included W.S. Bellows Construction, Walter P Moore, Smith Seckman Reid and Inventure Design.
