West Creek Medical Center, Goochland, VA
A land owner in Goochland County Virginia wanted to create a medical park, but lacked the expertise required to do so. CDS was hired to manage the entire development life cycle including a 60,000 square foot base building.
CDS worked with the architect and engineer to create the initial design plan. We then took this plan and worked with the county to obtain POD (Plan of Development) approval.
From there we helped the owner obtain a construction loan for the project. We employed our site engineer to review the POD to ensure that everything related to site work and utilities was ready for construction, and approval from the bank. This included compliance of all federal, state, and local regulations/laws relating to wetlands, zoning, subdivision, air pollution, waste disposal, fire safety, parking restrictions, ADA (American Disability Act Accessibility Guidelines) compliance, as well as sufficient utility capacity: water, sanitary sewer, electric and telephone, storm drainage and maintenance.
After approvals CDS kicked off construction of the building and worked with the entire team to keep the project on its original schedule and budget. During construction, the landlord was able to lease out four spaces in the building.
CDS provided construction management services for all projects, coordinating a team of tenants, designers and contractors to construct new physician spaces from the shell space on time and on budget.
Phase II of the project consisted of a 25,000 square foot ambulatory surgery center. CDS represented the landlord on this part of the project as well ensuring tenant compliance with landlord base building requirements and coordinated with tenant design and construction teams to troubleshoot project issues.
CDS coordinated and managed several different design and construction teams to ensure the successful completion of the base building, surgery center, and various physician offices. As the project manager, CDS handled the entire process, allowing the landlord time to find tenants to fill up the building, then creating a need for the addition of the surgery center.
