Winner NAIOP 2020 Awards of Excellence – Medical Office
Twin Cities Orthopedics hired RJM Construction to build a new, state-of-the-art 18,000-square-foot physical therapy and sports performance clinic in Waconia, working with the design team at Sperides Reiners Architects. The clinic provides physical therapy, hand therapy, and a sports performance program. The clinic features a small fitness studio, a gym space with turf and basketball surfaces, a weight room area with rubber flooring, medical office space, a conference room with a movable glass wall, and an underwater treadmill. RJM’s dedicated healthcare project teams worked to ensure that the facility was built to meet TCO’s standards of the highest quality of care and a patient-centered team approach.
The clay site soil posed the biggest challenge to the project progress. The wet spring and summer caused standing water, delaying site grading and other exterior work. The team coordinated scheduling and sequencing with trade partners to allow completion of work during periods of good weather. Despite many weather delays, RJM met the substantial completion and first patient date goals.
