Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center

Project Background

Reynolds has an extensive history with the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. Reynolds first provided services for the completion of hospital-wide refurbishment projects. These were fast-tracked projects that had to be designed, bid, and completed in a six-month period of time. All projects were completed on-time with coordination around all Medical Center activities.

Reynolds also provided budgeting and preconstruction services for studies performed at the Medical and Animal Research Facilities. Later, Reynolds was awarded an open-ended contract for project management services. Reynolds recently completed owner’s representative services for the new, 252,000-square-foot Penn State Children’s Hospital.

Since 2000, Reynolds has contracted with them for numerous studies, MEP design engineering projects, and building commissioning projects.

“On more than one occasion, Reynolds made suggestions of dealing with items in the field that saved the district significant money, and change orders were always carefully controlled. For both projects, only 30% of contingency funds were needed. The fees paid to Reynolds were quickly recouped several times over by savings throughout the duration of the project.”
