Best Healthcare Project

Adelante Healthcare Mesa

Adelante-Healthcare-MesaDeveloper: Axis Companies

Contractor: LGE Design Build

Architect: Cawley Architects

Size: 43,000 SF

Location: 1705 W. Main St., Mesa

Completed: November 2012

Adelante Healthcare Mesa began as an idea: to be the first LEED platinum community health center in the country. The project’s toughest challenge was not getting the LEED platinum certification; instead the biggest challenge was the project budget — a shell budget of $85 PSF and a TI budget of $75 PSF. Cawley Architects designed the exterior to include integral color masonry, green reflective glazing and numerous metal details. The interior design of the building complements the exterior with free flowing light space, low-VOC paint and recycled materials. Adelante Healthcare Mesa not only serves the environment with its green design facility, but also readily serves its patients with high quality primary and preventative healthcare. The facility provides individuals a community meeting resource, nutritionists and a pharmacy. Medical services include family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, women’s health and dental care, all within a peaceful and welcoming environment.
