Banner Queen Creek Health Center Addition
Queen Creek, AZ
Queen Creek is one of the fastest growing areas in the Phoenix metro area, and to accommodate the growing population Banner sought to expand its existing health facility in the area. This 19,570 s.f., one-story addition to the current health center houses a new primary care health clinic, adding 12 providers with 30 new exam rooms.
In planning for future growth, the addition is designed to accommodate a future second-story vertical expansion. To that end, structural columns for the addition extended above the roof, which was designed as a future concrete floor slab.
The project team was challenged to maintain full operations at the existing health center throughout the project. This was successfully accomplished by deliberate, considerate design and planning in the building penetrations needed to tie the buildings together, and construction sequence planning.
