We are experienced in a wide range of healthcare construction, including ambulatory care projects and OSHPD projects in acute care settings. Over the years, our team has successfully completed projects in adult and pediatric medical centers, clinical laboratories, nursing/rehabilitation centers as well as out-patient care centers and MOBS.
Our staff has built and managed complex laboratory projects, acute care bed floors, infusion centers and diagnostic and treatment rooms, including new and remodeled Radiology/Fluoroscopy, C.T. Scan, Cardiac Cath Labs, and MRI suites. We also provide infrastructure services ranging from roof and mechanical unit replacement and reheat coil replacement, to emergency flood damage repair. We want to take on difficult projects – small or large – where we can prove our value to your facility.
Seton Cardiac Catheterization Lab
Seton Medical Center came to us with a plan to replace their cardiac catheterization lab system. Thanks to a diligent pre-project analysis with the Stinnett Group and the structural engineer, we saved our client 40% of the projected budget and reduced the anticipated downtime of the Cath lab by four and a half months.
How We Did It
The team’s analysis showed that while the new Cath lab system was more technologically advanced than the old system, it did not require the costly structural work scoped in Seton's original plans. The new system was lighter and therefore, existing floor anchors could be adapted for re-use. In working with the architect and equipment supplier, we determined the existing C-arm could also be re-used, again eliminating the need for additional structural work.
Daily project reports by our superintendent kept the key parties informed, ensuring all moving parts were in synch, on time, and accounted for. The end result: predictability and a smoothly run project that exceeded our client’s expectations, greatly reduced the cost of construction and prevented lost revenues thanks to less equipment downtime.

UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, IT Service Center
Hospitals run on information and data, as well as medical expertise. When UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital hired us to convert a stand-alone building, originally built as a Cath lab, to a campus-wide IT Service Center, we began with a careful investigation of existing conditions. During our investigation we discovered significant structural and mechanical modifications were needed.
How We Did It
Our team worked directly with the project's architect and structural engineer to assist with design changes for new steel beam reinforcing in the building's crawl space to support the server room equipment. To save time, many of the sketches required for these changes were produced by our Director of Healthcare, a registered architect with long-term experience in the healthcare field. His sketches were stamped by the engineer, then submitted to and approved by OSHPD. Keeping this process in-house expedited the project and saved our client money.
Working with the design team and hospital's IT experts, we also developed design sketches for a two-level, overhead cable tray system. The new system increased cabling capacity despite tight space constraints in the ceiling. Proactive communication and smart scheduling enabled the hospital to populate the server room with their equipment while new cabling was distributed throughout the campus and surrounding facilities.

UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, New Operating Room for Outpatient Surgery
This project called for the addition of a fourth operating room within an operational outpatient surgery suite housing three existing operating rooms, as well as support areas for each. Scope of work included the remodel of an existing operating room, two induction rooms, an anesthesia work room and a sterile supply room.
Work was originally scheduled to take place in five phases while the facility maintained operations. Our team's proactive problem solving and collaboration with the hospital and design team kept the project on track, avoiding potential pitfalls.
How We Did It
Originally, there were five main project phases. However, as the project progressed it became apparent that each of these phases would require sub-phasing to accommodate shut downs of critical utilities. Through constant coordination with the management, design and surgical venter staff, we were able to complete each phase in a timely manner without disruption to the center.
Once the project was underway, we discovered unforeseen structural and mechanical obstructions which conflicted with the proposed installation of the boom-support bracing and laminar-flow supply ducts. Sketches were developed by our team which showed how the new air distribution, lighting and medical booms would work in conjunction with the architect’s layout. These were submitted for approval and accepted. Once again, the steps we took saved our client time, prevented costly complications and kept the project on track.
