We are in the process of considering the construction in up to 4 new community health centers to be built in the California areas of Fresno and Bakersfield next year. Our board has given us the green light, but would like some confidence we have the best team on board in addition to seeing some of these new great ideas surface in our design. How can we go about this process of considering new directions with architecture and design? Is there a better method of choosing a design and architecture team? We intend to use a negotiated general contract for construction. Any ideas out there?
The seminar on April 5th was very helpful in establishing connections for our clinic project. My colleagues and I (3 doctors and two consultants) are in the initial stages of planning, and have just applied for a development grant with the California HealthCare Foundation. We see over 100 patients a day at our 8,000 sf facility at 411 Grand Avenue near Lake Merritt in Oakland. Our ultimate goal is to expand it and make it a safety-net clinic that can provide affordable care for the community in this area.
