Sunset Community Health Center
Loven Contracting provided preconstruction and construction services for the New Clinic Building at the Sunset Community Health Center in Yuma, AZ. This new facility enables SCHC to offer an expanded range of services to their clients, including a new pharmacy and dentist office. The 13,242 SF, two-story wood and steel frame building also consolidates the administration offices and training/conference rooms into one unified space, and includes an upgraded parking lot and landscaping for the entire campus.
As a trusted and reliable partner for SCHC (based on previous projects successfully completed together), Loven Contracting provided a fast and thorough preconstruction evaluation of the project. Our services included a budget review, subcontractor scope review, red-lined and updated drawings, additional design for incomplete drawings, as well as resurveying the site — all with a sensitivity toward maintaining and growing our positive relationships with the local construction community.
During preconstruction, as a part of the Value Engineering process, Loven Contracting worked with the designer and client to achieve significant savings through the reduction of the quantity of metal siding on the building, saving the client money both in first cost and in potential long term maintenance issues. Throughout the construction process, our goal was to preserve and strengthen our relationships with quality local subcontractors. We achieved our goal, with over 90% of the subcontractors that worked on the project originating from the Yuma County area.
