Swinerton First to Make Things RAD for Kaiser Permanente

Swinerton Builders Orange County and Los Angeles (OCLA) recently wrapped up work on the Kaiser Permanente Manhattan Beach project. An 8,000-square-foot tenant improvement project, work took place on the first floor of an occupied two-story medical office building (MOB). This was the first project to be planned, designed, and built using Kaiser Permanente’s new Reimagining Ambulatory Design (RAD) concept. RAD strives to rethink the ambulatory delivery system, changing the way they can meet patients’ health needs in the future. Kaiser Permanente chose Swinerton’s Southern California Healthcare team as their preferred partner for the RAD initiative, as they have performed many traditional projects together in the past.

The project provides primary care, pediatrics, specialty care, imaging, blood draw, pharmacy, and a nurse clinic, utilizing seven physician offices. Set on an accelerated four-month schedule, the team successfully completed the project in only three-and-a-half months—two weeks ahead of schedule. The team is proud of their efforts on this first-of-its-kind project, and hopes to partner with Kaiser Permanente on many more in the near future.
