Encircle Health, Appleton, Wis.
Award of Merit - Health Care
This 158,000-sq-ft, three-story facility houses primary care and specialty doctors in an innovative partnership.
The freestanding ambulatory facility brings a health system, employed and independent physicians and ancillary services together as equity partners with shared services and consultation across specialties.
The center is expected to have 4,100 patient registrations per week and house more than 300 employees.
The overall culture on the project was one of teamwork and dedication to producing a finished product of maximum value for the owner.
Each of the key team members was part of an Integrated Project Delivery contract. The contract required transparency of costs to help inject the most value for each dollar spent.
In addition, a shared savings clause was put in place to reward the team for eliminating unnecessary waste in design and construction.
The majority of the project team agreed that the team’s culture at the site was exceptional, a huge testament from those who have been in the business for more than 30 years.
