Virginia Mason last month opened its University Village Medical Center on the second floor of the shopping center's new south building near the Northeast 45th Street viaduct.
The 20, 000-square-foot medical center houses the relocated Sand Point pediatrics clinic, adult primary care, asthma and allergy care, dermatology, laboratory and radiology services. The building has an entry stair and elevator to an adjacent garage, retail space and support services.
The center was designed by the Virginia Mason medical team using the Virginia Mason Production System, a collaborative lean design process that built a full-scale mock-up of the clinic so various functions and flows could be tested and optimized.
Lease Crutcher Lewis was the general contractor. Callison was the building core and shell architect and Clark Kjos Architects designed the medical center.
KPFF Consulting Engineers was the structural engineer, Holaday-Parks was the mechanical design-builder and Nelson Electric was the electrical design-builder. Key subcontractors were Interior Wood Products (casework), Olympic Interiors (framing/drywall), Division 9 (floors), Treble Interiors (acoustic ceiling tile) and Patriot Fire Protection (sprinklers).
