Optimizing Value and Quality in Healthcare Construction

This three-story behavioral health hospital in the Lowry District of Denver, Colorado was just completed. The nearly $30 million healthcare construction project includes a 62,000 SF hospital for inpatient treatment for patients of all ages. The facility offers 70 overnight beds, commercial kitchens, offices, a spa and 55,000 SF of underground parking for patients and visitors.

Brinkman Construction successfully utilized a design-assist delivery approach to engage specialty expertise early on this unique healthcare construction project. This has ultimately optimized cost, quality, and constructability for the client.

Four months of preconstruction services were provided to the Eating Recovery Center resulting in a savings of more than 20% from initial to final core shell design. The Lowry behavioral health hospital houses I-2 and B Occupancy Inpatient and Outpatient Behavioral Health facilities and is the 7th ERC facility.

Brinkman Construction is the general contractor for both the core/shell and extensive interior build out.
