Swinerton’s existing relationships and build new partnerships in Spokane and the surrounding communities is an honor. Our local team of employee owners is thrilled with the numerous prospects, pursuits, and projects in the future. Our goal is to continue providing exceptional quality, professional leadership, peace of mind, and a vision for successful projects.”
And we are doing just that. The statement above provided by the leader of our Spokane office, Project Executive Jeremiah Shakespeare, identifies exactly what the Spokane office is delivering on. The Spokane team was awarded four projects for a national healthcare client at its local Riverfront, South Hill, Veradale, and Lidgerwood locations. Renovations began in early September and were awarded to Swinerton due to the consistent outreach and coordination that was performed with the client’s leadership.
We have also been awarded projects with Vera Whole Health, a neighborhood health clinic organization that Shakespeare and Seattle’s Director of Special Projects Nick Vovakes had developed a relationship with in Seattle previously. This relationship allowed the Swinerton teams to secure three projects in the Spokane area, all of which will commence in the next few months. The first of three projects to break ground will be the Vera Health North Country location. North Country is a 17,000-square-foot, phased construction conversion of an existing medical clinic into the Vera Whole Health standard clinic. It includes a new X-Ray room and 20 exam rooms.
The second project, Vera Whole Health Logan Square, is a conversion of three tenant spaces at Logan Square into an 8,000-square-foot clinic. The third project, Vera Whole Health Spokane Valley, will be a partnership with a local developer where Swinerton has been selected to be the ground-up construction and tenant improvement contractor for a new medical building. Design is forthcoming and the Swinerton team is excited to expand its footprint into larger and larger projects.
The Spokane team has been expanding as a result of steady growth and project wins, bringing onboard two new hires from the Spokane area.
