Contegra Construction Co. Completes $5.5 Million Broward Specialty Medical Center in Coconut Creek, Fla.

in Companies/News

The location of the newest specialized medical facility to serve patients in the Fort Lauderdale, Fla. area is every bit as important as the medical services inside.  Contegra Construction Co. completed the $5.5 million Broward Specialty Center in Coconut Creek, Fla.  The facility will serve the growing practice of Dr. Sanjeev Gupta, a urologist, his wife, Dr. Hina Gupta, an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist and other physicians.

Located at 4515 Wiles Rd., the two-story, 13,490-square-foot medical facility is in the heart of a walkable commercial zone.  “While we have comfortable waiting rooms, we wanted to be more attentive to our patients’ time,” said Dr. Sanjeev Gupta.  “So rather than spending time in a waiting room, our patients can walk to a nearby restaurant or retail center until we page or text them that it’s time for their appointment.”

The Broward Specialty Center also enhances the patient experience by effectively combining an infusion of natural light and ornamental lighting to brighten interior spaces.  It also includes visual accents including a wall shaped with waves and art work throughout the public spaces.

The building hosts the Gupta practices on the second floor and is fully leased with two additional medical spaces on the first floor.         The Gupta’s second floor medical space is comprised of three procedure rooms, five urology exam rooms, six ENT exam rooms, allergy consultation space, a hearing aid room, audiology booth, reception area, waiting room and nurse stations.

Constructed of concrete block and concrete columns with an EIFS and metal panel facade, the main entry is accented by a full height glass curtainwall. The four first floor tenant spaces have separate access to their businesses on the south side of the building. The building is served by one elevator.  The facility is also served by a 60-space parking lot.

“Contegra did a great job, were on top of everything and were very responsive to our needs,” said Dr. Sanjeev Gupta.

Contegra managed 30 subcontractors in building the Broward Specialty Center and coordinated improvements to constructability to deliver the optimal product.  Contegra also overcame a number of challenges during the construction period, including the powerful Hurricane Irma which struck Florida in September.

Joining Contegra on the project were Chicago-based 2 Point Perspective, Inc. architect; Miami-based Building Center No. 3 (BC3), architect of record and landscape designer; Miami-based Ocean Engineering, civil engineer; Fort Lauderdale-based MUEngineers, Inc., structural engineer; and Schaumburg, Ill.-based RTM Engineering Consultants LLC, MEP engineer.
