Turner Construction provided preconstruction and construction management services through an integrated project delivery approach for the Northeast Georgia Medical Center Braselton, which was completed in December 2014. Featuring exteriors of stone, metal panels, stucco and punched windows, the project included a three-story, 226,000-sq-ft, 100-bed hospital with a two-story diagnostic and testing area. The project also included a five-story, 125,000 sq-ft medical office building at a 119-acre greenfield site.

Engineered with a closed-loop geothermal system as part of the mechanical system, the project also incorporated multiple prefabrication elements, including bathroom pods and patient room headwalls that were assembled at a nearby warehouse. Builders also utilized lean construction techniques and 3D modeling.
