What makes us the best contractors for the job?
Fast and Transparent
Building a medical office requires a fair deal of planning, strategizing, and most importantly, communicating. Our medical construction team is quick to design and build medical offices, but we’re also transparent.
We’ll stay in touch with you about your project from day one, helping you to monitor costs and scheduling so that you can save yourself time, money, and hassles.
One thing many people don’t realize is that there’s a lot of science in design, especially as it relates to medical office construction. Our evidence-based design practices can help save employees time, speed up patient recovery times, improve safety, elevate visitor satisfaction, enhance patients’ experiences, and decrease the chance of medical errors.
We’ll keep your team apprised of any medical office building requirements and see you through the project until the end to ensure your satisfaction.
Our DesignLab™ is the only commercial showroom of its kind on the West Coast. The hands-on, interactive experience allows you to truly envision what you’d like your medical office building to look like and hand-select every element, from the materials to the paint.
The DesignLab™ takes your vision to the next level by helping you to visualize all that your medical office can be.
Our Norwest Design-to-Budget™ Process
What It’s Like to Work With Our Medical Construction Contractors
Whether you’re looking for a custom medical office or a standardized design shared by some of the top healthcare facilities, we’ve got you covered. However, as you might expect, medical office build-out and construction costs can add up fast.
That’s why Norwest Contractors likes to empower our clients with a unique Design-to-Budget™ methodology with each project. This system helps you to keep the medical construction costs down by incorporating efficiency in the design and making sure every square inch of your office has a purpose.
Our Design-to-Budget™ methodology is helpful in that you can select the exact design elements you want and see how they affect the overall costs, ensuring you stay as close to the budget as possible.
The first step to getting your dream medical office is a Know Your Building evaluation. We’ll cover every inch of the location, including the wiring, and we’ll use what we learn about your building’s condition to help you design a healthcare facility that’s right for your budget.
We’ll also help you source the right materials for your budget by helping you do a cost-benefit analysis. We’ll remain impartial as we suggest different design elements that cater to your goals for your clinic construction.
Not to mention, if there’s an opportunity to lower your costs while keeping the quality high, we’ll be sure to recommend it. Your satisfaction with your new medical center or medical office building is our priority.
Tips for Designing the Ultimate Medical Office Building
Making Your Healthcare Building High Quality and Functional
When it comes to medical construction, one of the best things you can do is work with a designer who understands how to combine aesthetically pleasing and functional.
Medical offices should be comfortable, safe, and accommodating for patients, including everything they need and extras only when they add value to the patient experience or to employees.
To get the best medical office, work with your designer closely to plan for sufficient seating, restrooms, and more. Also, don’t forget the value of natural light and site selection. The location you choose for your healthcare facility is almost as important as the overall design and construction.
What to Consider for Your Medical Office Building Design
Essentials for Your Healthcare Facility
Here are some things to think about and questions to ask your healthcare construction contractor during the build-out:
- Patient Privacy: How can we promote the best patient comfort?
- Seating Options: What types of seats are necessary? How many seats will you need?
- Size of Waiting Room and Examination Rooms: Do you have enough room for patients to bring additional members of their families if needed?
- Natural Lighting: Is there enough light coming in from the outside?
- Location: Are you located in a high-traffic area?
