St. Alexius Medical Plaza in Minot, N.D. to open summer of 2015
NexCore Group out of Denver, Colo. recently broke ground on a medical complex in Minot, N.D.
According to a release by St. Alexius Medical Center, the state-of-the-art medical plaza features 40 primary care and 20 specialty care exam rooms as well as a same-day surgical center. Additionally, it will provide imaging (diagnostic radiology, MRIs, CTs, ultrasound, mammography, and DexaScan), physical therapy and laboratory services. For patient convenience, an eye clinic and pharmacy are also available.
The 62,733 square-foot facility includes a concrete foundation and structural steel frame.
Based on prior work with an employee of NexCore, Wilhelm was invited to submit on the project and was awarded the construction management contract.
Wilhelm will have to address the shortage of construction labor in the area and because nearly all subcontractors travel, they are not tied to the local community. Another major challenge Wilhelm faces is to enclose the project before the northern winter hits.
NexCore Group has developed and acquired more than 4.7 million square feet of facilities according to its website. With its growing portfolio, it offers hospitals and healthcare systems competitive capital structures and effective business strategy insights.
