The unique aspect about Cincinnati’s newest hospital is that all Everest hospitals feature an identical layout. While that gave a strong starting point, the Bayer Becker team had to adapt the design to meet local requirements and site needs. Our team was also able to make design suggestions based upon local construction techniques to provide cost savings when compared to prior construcftion projects Everest Hospitals has completed. Bayer Becker also provided due diligence research, including zoning and comprehensive plan review, utility research, development fee estimating and site analysis, to Everest’s project team who are based out of Texas.
The project site is located between existing interstate, I-75, and future development corridor , Cox Road. The Bayer Becker’s site design included drainage permitting through Butler County and ODOT, for drainage to the I-75 right-of-way. The project will also require construction, the extension of public utilities, on a portion of the future Cox Road which required coordination with Liberty Township and Butler County’s Engineer’s Office. Everest Hospital will be the first development in this area, which requires to have primary access to Bethany Road, but also be flexible for the future expansion of Cox Road.
