Medical Office Building with Surgery Center a Big Success
AJ Brown managed the construction and extensive site work for a new medical office building in Des Peres, Missouri. The three-story, 57,000 SF project included building construction, interior build-out and parking site work. The building was designed to serve multiple tenants and included an eye surgery center, endoscopy center and eye exam offices, all with very specific requirements. Due to the on-site surgery center, a generator back-up system was essential.
Worship Centers Strong Segment
While most market sectors have softened, there is a bright spot. This year, churches and other religious centers will spend an estimated $8 billion on new facilities in the U.S. AJ Brown has spearheaded several worship center construction and renovation projects and works successfully with congregations of all shapes and sizes.
“Our success lies in strong communication throughout the process and accountability regarding construction costs,” said project manager Dan Carmody. Recent projects include:
- Forever Oak Hill Chapel
- Cape First Assembly of God
- Bonhomme Presbyterian Church
