Scott + Reid was contracted to perform construction of a 42,600-square-foot medical office building with an attached 28,600-square-foot parking garage in Plano, Texas. Located on a 1.5-acre site, the four-story medical facility provides both primary care and outpatient services.
Building stability necessitated the project begin with drilling piers for base support, followed by installation of a post tension cable slab and permanent barrier cables around the second level parking garage. A unique component to the build was the transition from the concrete base to structural steel framing on levels three and four. The structure exterior is finished with use of multiple colors of stucco, a glass curtainwall picture frame surrounded by Nichiha panels, dark bronze storefronts, and TPO roofing with a metal coping cap.
Interior highlights of the space include two side-by-side elevator banks, a Building Automation System for HVAC control, polished and sealed concrete flooring, a premium lighting package, and a reclaimed wood accent wall with backlit building signage. Project scope also included sand blasted sidewalks, a painted CMU dumpster enclosure, an RTU enclosure on the roof, and a complete site work package with underground utilities, paving, and landscaping/irrigation.
Critical portions of construction took place during the COVID-19 pandemic and municipality mandated shutdown. Quick reaction from the project team ensured all challenges presented from these circumstances were overcome and a safe working environment was maintained for all subcontractors on-site. In addition, new utility services and relocation of an existing transformer for the buildings power source required extensive coordination. Instituting an evening schedule mitigated disruption to neighboring tenants, most of whom were offering medical services and/or COVID-19 testing.
Scott + Reid also completed an 8,656-square-foot interior finish-out within the facility for North Texas Preferred Health Partners.
