SLAM coordinated with a team to work on a 5 phase master plan including this project as well as a 2 phase hospital, an Hospital Support Building (HSB), CUP, 2 more MOB’s and 2 parking structures. This new 82,750 SF medical facility provides outpatient services to Southwest Riverside County. Services include Primary Care, OB/Gyn, Ambulatory Surgery, Urgent Care, Specialty Services, Laboratory and Pharmacy. Additional benefits to the community include a “Thrive” walking path that encourages mind body connection to nature and a community garden where educational seminars are held. Siting and design took into account the plan for an adjacent 80,000 SF Ambulatory Surgery Center as well as the preservation of a blue line stream to the west and south.
Pankow Builders was brought on as the general contractor very early in the conceptual design stage. Together with Kaiser Permanente, applying lessons learned from previous and similar projects, the team established a responsible target budget that was validated prior to completion of schematic design documents. This target-based design approach offered a solution that was both well designed and affordable.
