CHI Health Clinic - Bellevue

Alegent Health selected Darland to provide preconstruction and construction management services to convert an existing office building into a health clinic. Darland joined the project team early in the design phase. Working closely with the architect, Darland provided preconstruction estimating, value engineering, constructability review, and materials recommendations to help develop effective design solutions which were within the client’s budget. 

During the construction phase, Darland faced the challenge of renovating the building while working around an existing tenant that occupied a portion of the building. To accommodate the tenant, Darland created an alternative work schedule to utilize evening and weekend hours to perform activities that could have impacted the tenant’s practice. 

“We were situated in a building where there was active construction going on,” said Jane Warren, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist, Bellevue Psychological Associates. “Throughout this difficult time, one of the bright spots was our relationship with Mark Laughlin, Darland construction superintendent. He kept us well informed of what his crews were doing and how it might impact our practice. He seemed to make every attempt to accommodate us and our patients.” 

The extensive interior remodel included replacing the elevator, building a radiology room, exam rooms, waiting area, and retail pharmacy. Darland also constructed specialty areas for physical therapy, behavioral health and women’s health services. Exterior renovations included reworking the parking lot and the addition of a drive-up window for the pharmacy. 

“Darland was an excellent steward of the owner’s money, helping us maximize the value we were able to get from the budget,” said Mike Hamilton, Principal, Altus Architectural Studios. “Their preconstruction services helped us accurately estimate project costs. Moreover, with their proactive planning and excellent sequencing, they were able to keep the project on schedule and within budget even while working around an active tenant. They completed this challenging project with flying colors.”
