The Vancouver Clinic
Otak CPM served as Owner Representative for Vancouver Clinic in the development of two expansion projects in separate locations. The design of all facilities occurred concurrently under a LEAN Integrated Design format led by ZGF Architects and with partnership from Andersen Construction. This design experience drew heavily upon the experience of clinical staff and LEAN principles to idealize clinical workflow and design the space accordingly. The designs for all facilities were mocked up in cardboard in a leased warehouse space so that staff and providers could confirm and maximize the design intent.
As the first of two projects managed by Otak CPM for Vancouver Clinic, the Ridgefield Expansion is a 15,400 sf medical facility providing family medicine, urgent care, lab, and radiology services to the community of Ridgefield, Washington. The project completed in July 2019, was three weeks early and approximately $3M under total project budget.
The second project is a new 26,400-square-foot, two-story clinic in the Columbia Palisades development bordering east Vancouver and Camas, Washington. The project was delivered ahead of schedule and below budget. This allowed The Vancouver Clinic to promptly being serve the community with needed health care services in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. This project won the 2021 DJC’s 1st place in the Healthcare category.
This was the first building in the redevelopment of the old Fisher’s Quarry site, which created the first challenge. There were no data lines within a quarter mile of the jobsite, and the site was pre-loaded with a huge pile of dirt to “weight” the site and stabilize the ground beneath the new building. Under the newly stabilized soil was a layer of solid rock.
