Johnson & Galyon is well underway with two outstanding Medical Office Building construction projects in Lenoir City, TN; the University of Tennessee Medical Center – Regional Health Center-Lenoir City and the Pediatric Consultants of Lenoir City. Both construction projects are Construction Manager At-Risk delivery, which involves significant engagement from Johnson & Galyon through the pre-construction phase.
Pre-construction involves the estimating and budgeting of the Owner and Architects design documents throughout all phases of design. This allows the client to be well informed during the design process of the budget necessary to complete the project. Johnson & Galyon provided the clients with estimates at the Schematic Design, Design Development phases and also several estimates through completion of the Construction Documents. At an agreed upon point in the design phase the Johnson & Galyon estimating group issued a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) which transfers the cost risk of construction to the general contractor. Over 70% of Johnson & Galyon’s project are delivered using the Construction Manager At-Risk method, allowing our clients to make informed decisions through all phases of construction.
Medical Office Building Construction requires a unique skill set. Depending on the complexity of medical services provided to patients, these projects can often be just as complicated as hospitals. Facilities like these may contain imaging equipment, such as an MRI or X-Ray, as well as procedure rooms for out-patient procedures. All require significant engagement with the client early on in the design process to assure effective and efficient use of construction materials.
Both Medical Office Buildings have completed site excavation, foundations and underground utilities. The UT Medical Center project is a multi-story building which is nearing completion of its structural steel frame. The Pediatric Consultants project is a single story building which will use metal studs to support the structure. Both construction projects should be complete later this year.
