General Contractor of the Year

Kitchell

Winner of Best Healthcare Project: Phoenix Children’s Hospital
Honorable Mention for Best Healthcare Project: Phoenix Children’s Hospital

RED Awards 2012 - KitchellKitchell’s contracting of the Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s new 11-story pediatric tower enables it to serve its pediatric patients with 168 new beds, as well as high-quality outpatient care in new clinics housed on site. Modeled on a night-blooming desert flower and visible from throughout the Valley, the building is visually striking.

However, it is the inner workings of the hospital that are most remarkable – all designed and built with the highest quality patient care, comfort of patients and families, and proximity of specialties in mind. The project also included a new central plant, renovations, and two parking garages, which had to be built in a highly active environment in a busy metropolitan area. Kitchell also implemented an All-Systems Test that will potentially be a staple in the construction of future structures requiring Fire and Life Safety Reports.

The Phoenix landmark was completed four months ahead of schedule and $48M under budget.
