The first frame panels for the third Mercy Gilbert Medical Office Building have been lifted into place, keeping the project on schedule for its planned March 2023 completion. At the time of tilt, this facility has been fully leased and programmed with Dignity Health’s East Valley’s graduate medical education program and supporting medical imaging services via Arizona Diagnostic Radiology.
“This is an important milestone for the Mercy Gilbert III Medical Office Building because it reflects the hard work and collaboration put forth by the tenants, contractor and developer,” says Jake Dinnen, partner and executive vice president of development of PMB. “I can’t express enough praise and gratitude to all those involved for keeping the project on schedule and on-budget in today’s challenging delivery environment.”
The Mercy Gilbert Medical Center Medical Office Building III is a new, two-story 45,0000 square-foot facility located at 3477 South Mercy Road Gilbert. The project is the third medical office building at the Mercy Medical Commons, built in partnership with Dignity Health and PMB, utilizing Venn Construction as the General Contractor.
“We’re grateful for the hard work and constant communication between our project teams and local subcontractors to keep this project moving according to schedule,” says Nick Veldman, owner of Venn Construction. “Our earthwork and concrete partners have played a critical role in the building taking shape on schedule and within budget.”
Venn Construction, PMB and local trade partners have successfully navigated rapidly increasing construction costs and increasing interest rates to maintain project feasibility and start construction quickly to meet critical deadline requirements.
The architect for the project is Phoenix, Arizona-based Orcutt-Winslow. The project is estimated to be completed in March 2023.
