DPR Construction has broken ground on a new outpatient medical centre in Pasadena, California, US, which will involve a $60m investment.
DPR is the general contractor for Shriners Hospitals for Children Medical Centre that is expected to open in mid-2017.
DPR Southern California healthcare director Ron Rendina said: "We’re excited to break ground and continue our long relationship with Shriners Hospitals, helping them provide world-class care to children.
"DPR is committed to building state-of-the-art, high-performance healthcare facilities using innovative technology."
The outpatient care facility, which is being built in partnership with CO Architects and SRG, will include an ambulatory surgical centre.
The centre will house Shriners Hospitals for Children Medical Centre’s clinical, diagnostic, outpatient surgery and rehabilitation units.
Under the project, DPR will demolish two one-storey existing structures and will build 75,000ft² of new space that will include three levels of subterranean parking with 250 stalls and green roof terraces.
Shriners Hospitals for Children Los Angeles is a paediatric speciality hospital that offers medical, surgical and rehabilitative care to children with orthopaedic conditions, burn scars and cleft lip and palate.
DPR Construction specialises in developing technically complex and sustainable projects for the advanced technology/mission critical, life sciences, healthcare, higher education and corporate office markets.
