BJC Northwest Healthcare Building C Exterior

New Medical Office Space for the Community

Northwest Healthcare Building C
BJC HealthCare
St. Louis, MO

As BJC’s Christian Hospital closed its Graham Medical Center, the need for attractive, easily-adaptable specialty and primary care medical office space became evident.

BJC looked to KAI (in association with PARIC and BSA Lifestructures) to provide architectural and MEP/FP design and Building Information Modeling (BIM) services for the design and construction of the Northwest Healthcare Building C, a 40,000 SF medical office building addition adjacent to their existing acute-care facility. The new two-story addition provides the additional medical office space needed to serve that area.

The Building C addition was carefully designed to blend seamlessly with the existing acute-care facility. Brick veneer, ribbon windows, and a standing seam roof were used to match the existing building materials and campus style.

The project was completed on a very aggressive schedule, with only 18 months from preliminary design to construction completion.

KAI also managed the Architectural/MEP/FP/Structural Revit™ BIM model showing building systems and utilities. The model was used to depict the phasing elements in the project and also show the scheduling milestones.

“I would not hesitate to refer KAI to another company comparable to BJC HealthCare, or any other company looking for Architectural and/or MEP engineering design services.”
