This design-build project included the new construction of a 10,000 sq. ft. dental clinic and Office of Environmental Health and Engineering (OEHE). The project required coordination of ground-up construction at a remote location on the Navajo Nation Reservation. The new building was located adjacent to an active healthcare facility and constructed without negatively impacting the community, services or patients. This task was also successfully completed by providing careful coordination between two end-users who both had differing requirements and goals. They also provided the abatement and demolition of the adjacent abandoned facility.

This project required multiple trades including environmental mitigation, underground and above ground utility installation, site work and grading, structural steel erection, interior/exterior framing/drywall, doors, windows, stucco, roofing, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, communications and IT room, interior finishes, life-safety systems, paving, fencing, and demolition of the existing facility (post-construction/occupation).

The new site area was graded and a slab-on-grade foundation was installed followed by the framework, which included the installation of structural steel poles. Installed electrical and mechanical included a new HVAC system, ductwork, exhaust system and ventilation. Walls were finished with drywall and paint and we installed a telecommunications system, fire protection system, and security system throughout.

The exterior of the building was finished with stucco and concrete sidewalks, as well as an asphalt parking lot and perimeter fencing were installed. After the new facility construction was complete, the existing adjacent healthcare facility was demolished and the occupants were then relocated to the new facility without impacting operations or endangering staff or patients.
