Scope of Services
The purpose of St. Luke’s Architecture, and Construction Department is to contribute to the mission and vision of the Health System. We strive to provide the highest quality architecture and construction services, leasing and facility planning in the most ethical, safe and financially efficient manner.
Services provided include planning, design, programming, estimating, scheduling, public agency approval, architecture, construction document preparations, engineering, permitting, abatement, construction management, primary construction and-remodeling services, leasing, property acquisition, and post occupancy management services.
Our professional in-house team serves as a Construction Manager bidding and managing all St. Luke’s projects. Project sizes range from small office remodels to large new construction projects including full hospital facilities.
St. Luke’s Health System serves patients throughout southern Idaho, northern Nevada, and eastern Oregon. It is our department’s philosophy to reinvest St. Luke’s financial resources back into the local economies where we are fortunate to have the opportunity and responsibility to design and manage projects. We work primarily with local design professionals and sub contractors. When the local market does not have the talent or capacity to provide the services we need, we may choose to seek services from outside of our primary service region. We may use out of area firms to supplement local firms on large scale projects in order to bring their national or international health care experiences and production capabilities to the team.

Updated Hazard Communication Standard

To help workers better understand chemical hazards on the jobsite there are two significant changes that involve labels and data sheets. A standardized format will be used for labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS were formerly called Material Safety Data Sheets or MSDS). The revised standard will be phased in from December 1, 2013 to June 1, 2016. By December 1, 2013 employers must train workers on the New Labels and SDS format.
