The Reliant Austin Rehabilitation Hospital project recently received an ABC Excellence in Construction Merit Award and an AGC Outstanding Construction Award (Healthcare 2 Category). Reliant Austin is the first and only full service physician-partnered stand-alone rehabilitation facility in the south central Austin area.  Providing the highest quality of rehabilitative care, Reliant Rehabilitation of Austin is a 65,500 square foot state-of-the-art facility offering specialized programs specifically for orthopedic patients undergoing knee or hip replacement surgery.  The key to the success of this project was coordination and communication.  Among the challenges faced were updating the design drawings to reflect recent building code changes, collaboration with multiple municipalities, and regular communication with the local residents and Homeowners Association about construction activities.  Rogers-O’Brien worked closely with the owner and design team to ensure a project delivered on time and in budget in 11 months.  Lean Construction principles guided the scheduling to achieve subcontractor buy-in and project efficiency. Congratulations to the entire Project Team for a job well done!
