Renovation & Expansion Project
Blach completed a $4 million interior renovation and expansion project for Kaiser Permanente’s Pediatric Mental Health and Autism Disorder Clinic in San Jose.
The expansion has enabled Kaiser (www.kaiserpermanente.org) to continue providing in-depth developmental screening and assessments, treatment plans and clinical consultations for children in a welcoming atmosphere.
The project expanded the square footage of the department from 8,000 s.f. to 26,000 s.f.. Previously used as a computer network facility, the space required significant modification for the clinic’s purposes. The project, delivered with HMC Architect’s San Jose office, began construction in December 2008 and completed in July 2009.
Construction of the project, which was delivered under a design/build contract with HMC Architects’ San Jose office, completed in July 2009. The scope of work included an extensive conversion of the existing space, expanding the square footage from 8,000 s.f. to 26,000 s.f. to support use as the new clinic.
In addition, structural modifications, a complete build-out of all interior walls and ceilings, replacement of all electrical and low voltage systems, and modification of mechanical and plumbing systems were also included in the scope.
Blach also performed a series of 19 complex renovations for KaiserPermanente’s Mother-Baby wing in the Obstetrics & Gynecology Department building on its San Jose campus.
Working within an active, occupied building and in a confi ned area, the project team demolished and installed more than 4,000 s.f. of bathroom facilities within a multiphased schedule. Blach worked closely with the hospital staff to coordinate work flow in order to accommodate patient and staff needs, including following infection-control policies for the OSHPD project.
