Healthcare Renovations & New Construction
By the Numbers
Building Spaces to Heal
Denver Health and Hospital Authority, The Anschutz Centers for Advanced Medicine, Centura Health, Banner Health, STRIDE Community Health Center, Kaiser, Sloan’s Lake Care and Rehabilitation, Frasier, and El Paso County Coroner are but a few of our recent healthcare partners seeking specialized medical construction experience within an environment of collaboration and expert problem-solving. Our experience spans work within fully operational hospitals and rehab facilities, behavioral health, critical care, and skilled nursing/memory care. Since 1962, Pinkard has completed 55 healthcare projects.
Our Healthcare Experience, By The Numbers
$234 M Total
2M Sq. Ft. Built
Banner NCMC ED Refurbishment
The 13,500 sq. ft. project consists of an update of emergency department finishes which will include replacing the countertops and refacing millwork at the nurse stations, wall protection throughout the corridors, replacing light fixtures, reworking lighting controls, and painting throughout corridors and bathrooms.
The project is part of Pinkard's companywide commitment to their healthcare clients, including a push to certify project team members through partner organizations so they are experts on important patient safety concepts. Quentin Lowe, the onsite superintendent supervising the work, is a Certified Healthcare Constructor through the American Hospital Association.
The project will be completed under Pinkard’s special projects group, founded in 2021. This division was created to formalize the company’s commitment to providing existing and future clients’ small project needs with the same client-first services Pinkard is known for.
Frasier Meadows Master Plan
The Frasier Retirement Community’s $100 million Master Plan buildout consists of the construction of The Prairies, a 98-unit independent living building with a 110-space parking level on the lowest ﬂoor; a 6,000 sf Arts and Education building with classrooms, theater and a 300-seat multi-purpose room with stage; a 9,500 sf wellness center with a 25-meter exercise pool; and extensive renovations of the main ﬂoor of Frasier Central. All work is conducted on the occupied 530,000 sf, 14.5-acre complex.
To meet Frasier’s demand for high quality and an uncompromising sensitivity to the needs of 400-plus seniors, Pinkard conducted an exhaustive preconstruction phase that focused on intensive collaboration with architect Hord Coplan Macht, Frasier, and numerous Frasier user groups.
As a result of these efforts, the Pinkard/Frasier/Hord Coplan Macht collaboration produced “a perfect balance in site placement to achieve optimal aesthetics and natural views, respecting City of Boulder jurisdictional restrictions (including the 55-foot height limits), and FEMA ﬂood-plain requirements, all the while allowing Frasier to enjoy tremendous ﬂexibility for future growth. And we did this while balancing Frasier’s budgetary needs with the health, safety, and comfort of a demanding senior population.”
During construction, Pinkard managed an unusually complex permitting process, which included 12 separate building permits as opposed to the customary one or two permits.
Denver Health at VIDA
Pinkard is completing the build-out of a health care clinic for Denver Health and Hospital Authority on the main level of our project for Denver Housing Authority, Vida at Sloan’s Lake. The 7,741 sf clinic features 17 exam rooms, a procedure room, oxygen rooms, x-ray room, and various administrative spaces, and a conference room.
Project challenges included an expedited schedule to meet owner-occupancy requirements and the installation of intricate architectural wood ceilings. The clinic is part of the development’s overall vision which includes pairing affordable housing for seniors with essential on-site services.
STRIDE Community Health Offices
STRIDE Community Health Centers Corporate Office Consolidation
This 21,767-foot design-build project with MOA Architecture featured complete interior demolition (including demo of all existing interior MEP) to allow for complete office build-out including all new mechanical throughout the building – new ductwork, VAVs, fan-powered boxes, new hydronic system, routine testing and programming of RTU’s, new plumbing, electrical and light fixtures; break and conference rooms. Lots of open office areas with fan-coil units.
Interior glass demising walls; barnwood beams above the main staircase and first floor breakroom. Porcelain tile in wet areas, ACT ceiling clouds throughout open office areas.
This project centralized 125 STRIDE employees from 11 administrative teams into a centralized administrative building housing Human Resources, Patient Accounts, Call Center, Information Systems, Development, Operations administration, Finance, Strategy and Growth, Community Health, Compliance and Training and Development.
The permitting process was (uncharacteristically) four-to-five months long. To work around this delay and keep the work moving, we were able to pull a demo and rough-in permit that allowed us to start work; to put-up walls and get MEP rough-ins, plus some drywall installation.
Fire alarm systems and Denver Fire Department: There were two separate addresses at this one location, and both shared the alarm and sprinkler system with only one fire alarm panel. Final inspections required Pinkard and the design team to separate the fire alarm system, which would cause a significant delay. As a work-around, we met with fire marshal and got final sign-off without the mandated separation. The fire marshal required the other tenant to ultimately fund and implement the fire alarm system separation from STRIDE.
Project finished on time with a minimal, owner-approved schedule extension.
North Aurora Family Health Services Building
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.
Landmark Memory Care
Building One of a proposed three-building campus will be 9,395 sq ft and contain 18 memory care units in a single-story, wood-framed building. It will have a commercial kitchen, dining room, common areas and lobby.
Heating and cooling will be accomplished using individual packaged terminal air conditioner (PTAC) units.
The exterior is Manf stone veneer and stucco.
Pinkard's value engineering efforts included mechanical system life cycle analysis for a $350,000 owner savings.
The 2.73-acre site will require extensive infrastructure operations to build a road, roundabout and utilities.
