SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. (Dec. 14, 2020) – Sigma Contracting Inc. was just what the doctor ordered as the Arizona-based general contractor gutted and remodeled 24,000 SF of interior space for two full-service medical clinics in Houston, Texas.
Sigma completed the projects totaling approximately $6 million for HCSC-Sanitas 1, LLC, a partnership between Sanitas Medical Center USA and Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS).
The projects are located at 12586 Westheimer Road and 12823 Gulf Freeway, in Houston. The Westheimer location includes 3,000 SF for the HCSC-Sanitas 1 Texas corporate office. The two facilities are in areas with minimal access to services provided by other agencies.
Each facility includes exam rooms for primary care, urgent care, specialty services with lab and diagnostic imaging services as well as wellness and disease management programs. Their multi-disciplinary approach will serve to offer coordinated high-quality healthcare for their Texas BCBS members.
“Sanitas has been a great client to work with as they understand and rely on the value Sigma brings to the table with our more than three decades of knowledge and expertise,” said Sigma President Dan Hinkson. “Their projects are challenging and unique. Time is truly our worst enemy on these facilities, and yet they make no compromise on their quality and the brand identity they convey to their customers.”
When a given market is selected, Sanitas has approximately one year to negotiate leases, develop plans, obtain building permits and complete construction. As a result, their facilities are generally located in existing centers with high vacancies whose buildings have been neglected in terms of long-term maintenance.
Often space is converted from a retail application to medical, which can require extensive structural modifications to the roof system to support additional HVAC equipment and upgrades to electrical services and sewer systems.
Notable subcontractors include Phoenix Construction for framing and drywall; Phoenix Millwork for the millwork; M.E.K. Floors for flooring; Steltzer Mechanical, HVAC; and Advanced Electric for the electrical. Architect of record was Perez McGee Architects.
