Medical Office Building and Orthopedics Building at the University of Kansas Medical Center


LEED: Silver

Shortly after MMC Contractors completed the new Life Sciences Building on the University of Kansas Medical Center campus in Kansas City, KS, construction was begin on the new Medical Office Building on the other side of the urban university hospital campus.

In July 2009, Turner Construction broke ground on the new state-of-the-art facility designed to house medical offices and orthopedics. This is the first building on the University of Kansas Medical Center Campus in Kansas City, KS to be designed to meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification requirements.

Through the installation of energy efficient technology in water flow and high efficiency HVAC equipment, MMC Contractors was able to help the project achieve LEED Silver certification. MMC Contractors fabricated all plumbing and HVAC piping in our Kansas City, Missouri fabrication shop, helping to keep construction site waste to a minimum. Using the Lean Construction principals of pull planning, this also allowed us to fabricate early in the project and deliver components to the site using Just-in-Time delivery.

The 220 exam room facility provides the following services for the following practices:

  • Family, General and Geriatric Medicine
  • Imaging and Surgery for Neurosurgery, Urologic Surgery, Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery
  • Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and High-Risk Pregnancy care
  • Allergy and Rheumatology, Dermatology
  • Endocrinology, Diabetes, Gastroenterology and Hepatology care
  • Psychiatry, Child Psychiatry, Psychology and Genetics
  • Orthopedics Surgery and Sports Medicine

The new medical office building opened in July 2011.
