Fulcrum was chosen to construct a new, ground up medical office building for Sterling Plastic Surgery. Abutting three property lines and located next to a busy intersection providing the only vehicle and pedestrian access to the existing medical park, this below grade surgery center required careful phasing and staging throughout project: with no direct traffic access during construction.
The first phase encompassed demolishing an existing house several feet off a sidewalk. This was a very controlled operation to maintain traffic patterns and allow continued access to the medical park. The next phase required installation of temporary shoring along the road to excavate for the foundations on the west side of the building; again, being mindful of continued access for adjacent businesses. To support the most effective and efficient project delivery, Fulcrum used Lean Construction practices to reduce waste and increase value. Time was critical, and it drove this project from start to occupancy in less than five months.
The multi-gabled single-story building includes one surgical suite, four exam rooms, a concierge-level office with record retention, as well as a large waiting / reception area.
