McLaren Greater Lansing hospital wins the Design-Build Institute of America National Merit Award
We're very proud to share that the McLaren Greater Lansing Hospital in Lansing, MI, has won a Design-Build Institute of America National Merit Award in the healthcare category!

With the goal of becoming the destination of choice for health care in mid-Michigan, McLaren Greater Lansing consolidated two existing Lansing hospital facilities into an innovative health care campus which transforms the experience for patients and their families, physicians, caregivers and the community in terms of access to care, ease of receiving services and providing the best value for patients through quality outcomes, cost and service. This facility is a national benchmark in delivering evidence-based care that incorporates LEAN principles, safety, and applies best practices. Within the 39-acre parcel, McLaren invested $601 million into a state-of-the-art health care campus that includes this nine-story, 562,000 sq. ft. Replacement Hospital.

The complexity and timetable of this project required a deep collaboration between all parties of the design-build team. The keys to success included willing partners, the early involvement of design assist partners, and the non-traditional design sequence. This complex and highly coordinated effort allowed the team to deliver this project two-months earlier than what historically would have been possible using conventional methods. Together we created this new facility, and that teamwork is the basis for this shared honor.

Congratulations and thank you to our client McLaren Health Care Corporation and their advisor Kramer Management Group, without whom our team could not have come together!
