Vancouver Clinic Vancouver, Washington

With over 121,000 square-feet added across a three-site expansion, the Vancouver Clinic would grow its ability to provide healthcare services for communities across Southwest Washington. Close coordination with city and agency stakeholders helped navigate complex site challenges and a compressed schedule to completion ahead of schedule and under budget.

Managing An Integrated Design Approach to Deliver a Multi-Site Healthcare Facility Expansion

Utilizing a Lean Integrated Design / Design Build approach, the Vancouver Clinic expansion designed all three facilities concurrently. The design processes were augmented by full-scale mock-ups to confirm functionality while leveraging the experiences of clinical staff and medical consultants to prioritize patient care with optimal clinic workflows. An established governance process including the Vancouver Clinic’s executive sponsorship team and two physician board structures led to efficient approvals while maintaining a high degree of integration with Vancouver Clinic leadership. As owner’s representative, Otak managed project delivery in the development of the new multi-specialty medical facilities. This included construction management across the Ridgefield and Camas locations and remaining as strategic advisor in completing the Salmon Creek location.
