Balfour Beatty Construction Selected by Mainstreet to Build New Transitional Care Properties in Arizona
November 01, 2016
New projects in Tucson, Chandler mark Balfour Beatty’s second and third facilities for Mainstreet
PHOENIX – Mainstreet, the nation’s largest developer of post-acute health care properties, has selected Balfour Beatty Construction to build two new transitional care properties located in Tucson and Chandler, Ariz. With a total project value of $24 million, the properties will provide post-acute care, short-stay rehabilitation and therapy for patients in a service-rich environment.
Each of the one-story, 70-bed transitional care facilities will feature 50,000 square feet centered on Mainstreet’s hotel-like, NextGen® designs that meet the demands of guests who want to get well and get back to work. By creating properties focused on therapy, wellness, multiple social destinations, restaurant-style dining, and spacious private rooms and baths, Mainstreet properties present an upgrade uncommon to an industry with predominately old, underwhelming facilities. Likewise, the newest Mainstreet facilities will offer patients hospitality-oriented care with amenities including a large therapy gym, an outdoor rehabilitation courtyard, a movie theater, game room, spa, an on-site chef, and more.
“We are thrilled to be Mainstreet’s construction partner in delivering their innovative transitional care facilities in Arizona,” said Jay McQuarie, vice president of Balfour Beatty Construction’s Phoenix office. “We have similar mindsets, a budget that meets their investment goals, and a quick delivery schedule to ensure much needed healthcare services are available to the public in a timely manner. We look forward to the opportunity to build facilities that are changing the way healthcare is delivered on a national basis.”
Construction of the Tucson and Chandler facilities started in September with completion scheduled for the fall of 2017. Balfour Beatty was also awarded a third Mainstreet transitional care project in Surprise, Ariz. With construction underway, this $14.4 million, 68,000-square-foot property will feature 100 beds and is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2017.
Balfour Beatty is consistently ranked as a leading healthcare builder by Modern Healthcare and Engineering News-Record. With a proud tradition serving the healthcare sector, Balfour Beatty recently led the successful delivery of the largest single-phase healthcare construction project in the U.S. – the new Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas.
