STRIDE - NAFHSC Building
STRIDE - Formerly Metro Community Providers Network (MCPN)
Type of Construction
Partner, Plan, Build Better.
Pinkard Construction, in a design-build relationship with MOA Architecture and Metro Community Provider Network (MCPN), completed the North Aurora Family Health Services renovation 45 days ahead of schedule and $80,000 under budget. Scope of work on the two-phased, 10,000 sf project included renovation and reconfiguration of a fully operational pharmacy, and transformation of existing offices into exam and procedure rooms.
The design-build team structure contributed greatly to the project’s success, allowing MCPN, MOA, and Pinkard time to reevaluate MCPN’s needs and program. Design and programming charrettes produced more efficient layouts resulting in expanded pharmacy space, two additional procedure rooms, a shorter schedule, and budget savings during buyout.
Pinkard’s management of the occupied pharmacy renovation was another key to the project’s success. With Pinkard’s implementation of a rolling shelving system, pharmacy staff was able to quickly transport and securely store pharmaceuticals during the long weekend of pharmacy renovation.
