This project is a complete 50,000 SF, 2-story interior remodel of the Verde Valley Medical Center Medical Office Building in Cottonwood, Arizona, utilizing the innovative “Virginia Mason Model” to enhance the patient’s quality of service and experience and maximize clinic operations.

A primary objective of this design was to consolidate the services provided by the clinic to support a patient-oriented, holistic approach to healthcare. To facilitate this, the new exam room features two entrances, one for patients and one for staff with a clinic support space to establish separation and enable the staff to work more efficiently. Registration desks are now available to patients on each floor, and the imaging suite includes all specialty services, reinforcing a comprehensive healthcare experience for patients and staff.

Loven Contracting collaborated with the design team, owner, and stakeholders throughout the preconstruction process, including budget development, design phase management, scope development, plan review, bid evaluation, bid preparation, permitting and design approvals, scheduling, subcontractor scope preparation, and value engineering.

The fast-track construction scope of work included:

  • Complete interior demolition, including removal of all interior walls, roofing, existing MEP and the port a cochére.
  • Installation of a new PVC roof.
  • All new floorplan to fit the existing shell.
  • Installation of all new MEP, including upgraded electrical design to accommodate increased APS power capacity and temporary electrical to support the mobile MRI trailer for use during relocation of existing unit.
  • Construction of a complete imaging suite to include (1) 3 Tesla MRI and shell space for (1) 1.5 Tesla MRI equipment, a new CT suite, and (2) X-ray rooms.
  • Construction of offices, exam rooms and support spaces for neurology, gastrology, primary care, urology, behavioral health, orthopedics, internal medicine, and OB/GYN practices.
  • Replacement of all glazing and doors.

The end result is a new healthcare facility that combines innovative design principles and state-of-the-art equipment and features to ensure a positive patient and staff quality of experience.

Loven Contracting provided preconstruction and construction services as a completion contractor for the New Clinic Building at the Sunset Community Health Center in Yuma, Arizona. This new facility enables the Sunset Community Health Center 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 Sunset Community Health Center, 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.

As a part of the value engineering process, Loven Contracting worked with the designer and client during the preconstruction phase to achieve significant savings through reducing the quantity of metal siding on the building, saving the client money both in first cost and in potential long term maintenance issues.

Loven Contracting remodeled Flagstaff Medical Center’s new 39,085SF Women, Infant and Children’s (WIC) Department, spanning both 2nd and 3rd stories of the existing hospital.

This multi-phase project required dynamic and minimally invasive Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA), project management and safety plans. Our team minimized impact on adjacent departments and effectively performed construction within the 100% occupied and active facility. 

This project includes extensive MEP tie-ins to the existing infrastructure and the use of temporary walls and monitored single points of access for all project personnel, material and tool travel. Appropriate security measures were essential in this sensitive environment, and team members performing work on-site were properly badged with photo ID. Regulations are enforced via required sign-in / out system, hourly “headcount” of personnel, and daily inventory of all tools upon hospital entrance.
