The Absentee Shawnee Tribe hired ADG to assist them with the completion of their newest health center. The 73,000-square-foot facility includes 24 exam rooms, 16 dental chairs, an optometry center, physician offices, a drive-thru pharmacy, a wellness center, a fitness center and specialty areas for radiology, triage, minor procedures and laboratories.
ADG’s role on this project began after construction had started. At the onset of ADG’s participation on the project, a review of all plans and specifications was conducted. This review identified a number of issues that were resolved with no interruption in construction. ADG’s management of the project resulted in advancing the schedule by six weeks, earning the client millions of dollars in early grant funding.
The firm also performed three weekly site visits and issued field reports, tracked and reviewed change orders, contractor requests for information and architects supplemental information documents and recommended contractor payment applications.
The $26 million facility was built by the Absentee Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma with financing assistance from two federal agencies: the Indian Health Services and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The single-story health center opened in May of 2012.
The design is credited to James Childers Architects. The construction manager was Nabholz Construction.
