Baptist Medical 20th Avenue

Baptist Medical Office Building

With more than 270,000 square feet and 11 stories, this structure is an important component of the Baptist Hospital campus.

It primarily functions as state-of-the-art medical facilities and doctors’ offices. It is connected to the main hospital building by a pedestrian crosswalk. A horizontal chain and basket conveyor system is also used to transport charts, samples, x-rays, and other items to and from labs and other offices at the hospital.

Over a 12-month span of time, PBG has completed over 20 doctor's offices and an MRI Lab, all without disruption of normal day-to-day business.

Baptist Parking Garage

The design of this four-story garage had to complement the existing architecture on the Baptist Hospital campus. At the same time, construction required a particular emphasis on patient safety, as it does on any health care project.

The garage provides 300 additional spaces for patients, visitors, physicians, and office staff at the Mid-State Medical Center. It also connects to the hospital’s crosswalk, offering easier access to all interior areas of the Baptist complex.

“Any construction company that comes into a healthcare environment, especially a hospital, has to be top notch. They have to have discipline in their construction activities that give us the securities that we’re going to protect our patients. There’s very little margin for error when you bid a contract, and with Powell, you’re pretty well assured that you have a teammate that’s working along the same lines as you are.”

The purpose of this beautiful, state-of-the-art building was to offer amenities for the comfort of patients while maintaining efficiency for the hospital staff.

Constructed of a brick and pre-cast concrete veneer, aluminum storefront, and curtain wall, the project was initially $2 million over the owner’s budget. However, we were able to value engineer the project to bring it within budget. Then, during construction, we worked with the owner and architect to return the original items.

Due to the owner’s program changes, the scope of the job was increased by 50% as it went along. The Cancer Center floor plan was changed and a second floor included. Another linear accelerator was also added to the Cancer Center. Later, a Diagnostics Center was incorporated into the project.

Despite the expanded scope of work, the Surgical Center was ready for use when originally scheduled, and the Diagnostics Center was delivered just 120 days after being added to the project.

“We have had a long, good relationship with Powell Building Group. They have done a great job on both large and small projects and we will continue to work with them in the future.”

Baptist Outpatient Medical Faciltiy

Baptist Outpatient Surgery

This project required remodeling and renovations to Baptist Hospital’s Tower II and its fitness center. Because it was necessary to keep all areas in operation during construction, the work had to be phased in carefully.

As soon as each new area was completed and passed inspections, it was immediately occupied. Those rooms remained in use while adjacent rooms were being completed.

The administration office was relocated and various areas of the fitness center were reworked as part of the project. By planning and scheduling carefully, we were able to move ahead in each phase with minimal interruptions.

“I would definitely recommend Powell based on their excellent work and their professionalism throughout the project. They were able to eliminate obstacles on the front end before they could escalate into problems.”

-John Webster Architect, Gresham, Smith and Partners
