GTC breaks ground on new medical office building in Erie
GTC recently broke ground on a new medical office building in Erie for Boulder Community Health. The project involves core and shell construction of a 41,628-square foot, two-story, mixed-use building.
Designed by PEH Architects, the building will feature steel frame, with glass and brick façade, as well as precast concrete and sandstone details. The airy, light-filled interior will include a glass curtain clerestory, solar shades and a sweeping terrazzo staircase with precast treads and radius glass panels. Construction also encompasses full site development with new parking lot and utilities. The parking lot also will include a two-car electric charging station, with utilities in place for another potential station in the future.
“Through our collaboration process with the whole design team, we were able to help BCH save 4.2 percent without any sacrifices to aesthetics or function,” said Jamison Martin, vice president of GTC’s preconstruction services.
Located at 101 Erie Parkway, adjacent to the Erie Community Library, the new facility will be leased out for medical offices and urgent care, including a maternity ward and mental health outpatient services. The project is scheduled to be complete in December. The building marks the first presence for BCH in Erie, and the 33rd time GTC and BCH have collaborated since 2004. This project also marks GTC’s 22nd collaboration with PEH Architects.
GTC is also completing an urgent care tenant finish for BCH in Superior, and three separate 50,000-sf office/manufacturing/warehouse tenant finishes with PEH Architects at 633 CTC Blvd. in Louisville.
“GTC is proud of our 15-year relationship with BCH,” said Dennis Richard, vice president of business development for GTC. “We’ve partnered with them for a long time, and this facility will be exquisite. BCH makes spaces that patients feel comfortable in, and we enjoy helping them do that.”
