Before the St. Bernard Hospital completed the Ambulatory Care Center, residents of the Englewood neighborhood would have to travel outside of the community to seek basic care. St. Bernard realized that most residents were not receiving the basic health care they required and in part created a “safety – net” in the Ambulatory Care Center for residents to be able to receive the necessary health care they deserve with out leaving the neighborhood.
A pinnacle of the Englewood neighborhood, this new 72,000 sq. ft. three-story, slab on grade building was constructed at 6307 S. Stewart Ave. in Chicago. Outpatient Services Facility with MRI and Radiology imaging center on previously developed land. This project was the Client’s strategic approach to addressing the changing community needs in response to the Affordable Health Care Act. The construction process Berglund utilized to accomplish this project was an Integrated Construction process, in which the owner and the end users sat down for meetings with the Design team to go through wants and needs in every aspect. During the course of construction St. Bernard, Berglund and all subcontractors utilized Lean construction to be able to track all durations, material deliveries, and quality testing. To accompany the Lean construction Berglund required that all subcontractors provide their companies quality plans which included: 100% material verification, in-wall sign off, above ceiling sign off and all city inspections and manufacture inspections.
