Edward Healthcare Center determined there was a need to further expand and remodel their existing facilities which included an immediate care clinic, imaging center, lab services, and physician offices. Operational requirements led to a multi-phase project design including an expansion and remodeling of the previous spaces as facilities moved into the new building addition area.
The project phases and certain design features presented several challenges. Maintaining operation of the existing facilities during the construction required careful planning of the expansion and remodeling design phases.
