Kadean Construction Completes Three Ambulatory Surgical Centers In Kansas And Wisconsin As Trend Grows Nationwide

in Uncategorized

Kadean also is Constructing Two More ASCs in Florida and Indiana

Capitalizing on a growing trend in healthcare, St. Louis-based Kadean Construction has just completed three ambulatory surgical centers (ASC) in Kansas and Wisconsin, and is starting construction on two more centers in Michigan and Indiana, the company announced today.

“These ambulatory surgical centers are in demand,” said Mike Eveler, president of Kadean Construction. “As our nation’s population ages and the need for various joint replacements and other out-patient surgery continues to grow, these centers are providing an excellent medical service in local communities.”

All five centers are being built for Towson, Maryland-based SurgCenter Development, a corporation that partners with local surgeons to create physician-owned and operated ambulatory surgical centers (ASC).

The Overland Park Surgical Suites is in Overland Park, Kansas, a suburb of Kansas City, while the other two recently completed centers are located in Milwaukee and Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin.

The Overland Park facility is nearly 7,500 sq. ft. and located in a multi-tenant building; the Milwaukee Surgical Suites is in a single-user building totaling nearly 7,400 sq. ft.; and, the Pleasant Prairie facility – called the North Shore Surgical Suites – is nearly 7,100 sq. feet.

The two newest centers that Kadean is constructing are in Zeeland, Michigan, and Munster, Indiana. Both will be in the 7,000 – 7,500 sq. ft. range, Eveler said.

SurgCenter has developed 177 ASCs with approximately 1,250 physicians throughout the United States, said Dr. Stacey Berner, principal, CEO, and managing partner, of SurgCenter Development.

“Our centers and surgical suites are serving a tremendous need,” he said. “For example, our centers have provided more than 22,000 joint replacements since 2013. Last year alone, our SurgCenter facilities provided joint replacements to nearly 7,000 patients in 19 states.”

He said advancements in surgical technique and pain control enable doctors to perform what was once a very complex procedure in a few hours, and offer hip and knee replacement patients a shorter recovery time, usually in the comfort of their homes.

Dr. Berner said more than 96 percent of the joint replacement patients treated at SurgCenter Development facilities were discharged the same day. Following an average four-hour recovery, 94 percent of hip replacement patients and 97 percent of knee replacement patients went home the same day.

The readmission rate from joint replacement procedures was less than 1 percent, he added.

Kadean, which was recently named one of the “Fastest Growing Companies” in the St. Louis region by the St. Louis Business Journal for the second year in a row, previously built four other ASCs for SurgCenter Development in Grand Rapids and Lansing, Michigan, and Ocala and Hollywood, Florida, Eveler said.

The Business Journal’s ranking comes on the heels of Kadean being named mid-sized General Contractor of the Year by the American Subcontractors Association (ASA) Midwest Council. The organization honored Kadean for its commitment to working closely with its subcontractors, whom Eveler described as “dedicated partners and a big part of our company’s success for more than 50 years.”

Construction of ASCs is part of Kadean’s continuing growth strategy in its medical construction division, which includes major medical center construction and renovation, Eveler said.

Two of Kadean’s most recent medical construction projects include the completion of the $13.1 million expansion of the Siteman Cancer Center, a state-of-the-art outpatient treatment facility at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital in suburban St. Louis, and a multi-million-dollar expansion of two floors of patient rooms at Missouri Baptist.

The company also is constructing independent and assisted senior living facilities in Sunset Hills and Independence, MO, Eveler said.

Kadean also specializes in pre-construction, design-build, construction management, and general contracting in the commercial and light industrial sector.

It is currently completing its fourth tilt-up distribution warehouse facility in the Aviator Business Park, near St. Louis-Lambert International Airport, for Panattoni Development.

Kadean also is preparing to start constructing two commercial distribution warehouse buildings at the Lakeview Commerce Centerin Edwardsville, IL, and KCI Logistics Center in suburban Kansas City, MO.

New Ranking Comes on the Heels of Kadean Being Named Mid-Sized ‘Contractor of the Year’ by ASA

Continuing its growth strategy, Kadean Construction has been named one of the “Fastest Growing Companies” in the St. Louis region by the St. Louis Business Journal for the second year in a row, it was announced today.

Kadean, which specializes in pre-construction, design-build, construction management, and general contracting, was ranked 10th among the 50 fastest growing companies in the St. Louis area, based on their three-year revenue growth.

St. Louis-based Kadean’s annual revenue has increased from roughly $21 million in 2014 to more than $61 million in 2016, said Mike Eveler, president of Kadean Construction.

“We are extremely proud to be ranked among the region’s Fastest Growing Companies again this year,” Eveler said. “Our growth can be attributed to the hard work and commitment of our entire staff, the dedication of our talented subcontractors, and our tremendous clients. And, we’re very grateful.”

Last year, the Business Journal saluted Kadean for being among the 20 Fastest Growing Companies in the St. Louis region. Today’s rankings recognize the 50 companies throughout the St. Louis region that have shown the greatest revenue growth over the past three years.

The Business Journal’s ranking comes on the heels of Kadean being named mid-sized General Contractor of the Year by the American Subcontractors Association (ASA) Midwest Council. The organization honored Kadean in April for its commitment to working closely with its subcontractors, whom Eveler described as “dedicated partners in all that we do.” He also credited them with being “a big part of our company’s success for more than 50 years.”

Eveler said Kadean is continuing its growth trajectory in 2017 with a range of healthcare, senior living, commercial, and light industrial projects underway in Missouri, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Kansas. He added that Kadean’s revenues could hit $80 million by the end of this year.

Two of Kadean’s most recent projects include the completion of the $13.1 million expansion of the Siteman Cancer Center, a state-of-the-art outpatient treatment facility at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital in suburban St. Louis, and construction of its fourth light industrial building in the Aviator Business Park in the City of Hazelwood, near St. Louis-Lambert International Airport.

New Building Is Kadean’s Fourth in Aviator Business Park in Hazelwood, MO, site of the Old Ford Plant

Kadean Construction has been tapped by Panattoni Development to construct its fourth light industrial building in the Aviator Business Park in the City of Hazelwood, one mile north of the St. Louis-Lambert International Airport, it was announced today.

The 548,000 square foot, concrete, tilt-up building, which will cover 13 acres under roof, will have a clear height of 32 feet, and a total of 82 loading docks – 40 on the north side and 42 on the south – side, said Mike Eveler, president of Kadean Construction Co., which is based in suburban St. Louis.

“This will be a very flexible building that can be used for as many as four companies or one very large tenant,” he said. “The pass-through design, the number of docks, the all-concrete pavement and roadway and tractor trailer storage around the perimeter will make it very appealing for a tenant that relies on a high volume of daily transfers of goods or for other light industrial purposes.”

Construction of the building will begin immediately, and is due to be completed by mid-August, said John Piedimonte, Kadean Vice President of Pre-Construction.

The building will be constructed with a structural steel frame and nine-inch thick, steel-reinforced concrete walls, and a seven-inch thick, concrete floor. It also will have an early suppression, fast-response (ESFR) fire protection system, LED lighting, and other amenities, Piedimonte said.

Aviator 10 will be the fourth Kadean-built structure in the 155-acre business park, which is served by Norfolk Southern Railroad and provides easy access to interstates 70, 270, 64, 44, 55 and other area highways. Kadean also built Aviator 3, 4, and 7, most of which are fully occupied. More space is available for a half-dozen smaller commercial or light industrial facilities on the site as well.

Aviator 10 is currently listed as a “spec” building, although Panattoni is in discussions with a variety of potential tenants, said Panattoni Development Partner Mark Branstetter, of St. Louis, who oversees development for the company in Missouri, Illinois and Indiana.

“We’re very proud of the progress we’re making at Aviator Business Park,” he said “The companies there now employ nearly 300 men and women from across the region. Aviator 10 will continue to enhance the park’s vitality and vibrancy, and we’re looking forward to Aviator’s continued growth and success.”

Kadean Construction, named one of the fastest growing companies in the region by the St. Louis Business Journal, specializes in pre-construction, design-build, construction management, and general contracting at the regional and national level.
