Broaddus Construction provided construction manager-at-risk services on the new Kleiman Evangelista Eye Center in Arlington, Texas, a 28,200 SF surgical eye center facility that combines vision technologies with a patient-focused environment. The center provides patient exam rooms, labs, and waiting areas along with 4 fully licensed operating rooms, 8 pre-op and 6 post-op beds.
At the 85% documents stage, Broaddus Construction identified $868,641 in value engineering savings in order to deliver the project at the initially targeted budget. These measures included extensive changes to the unique roofing and ceilings of the facility.
The vaulted structural steel and timber framing with glass, exterior metal panels and sunscreens are hallmarks of the building, and maximizing their presence at the front of the facility (and reducing them from the rear, where they would be less visible) helped achieve the budget. In addition, subtle changes to the secondary waiting areas created significant savings. This innovative facility was completed on schedule and under budget.
