A State-of-the-Art Facility Delivered with Value

Project Detail

This 40,000 square-foot surgical center features a two-story atrium in the visitors’ entry lobby with exposed roof timbers and state-of-the-art systems throughout. The facility is located in the Spring Ridge Corporate Center, a five-building complex developed by Century Land Development Company. Penntex served as the construction leader for the entire complex, providing preconstruction services, design-build, budgeting, value engineering and construction management for all buildings in the complex.

  • Administrative and doctors’ offices
  • Four nursing stations
  • Doctor and nurse changing areas with lockers and bathroom

  • A state-of-the-art air conditioning system that maintains 55 degrees and low humidity in the operating rooms
  • A DX air conditioning system for the patient rooms and administrative offices
  • A backup 20 KW generator
