UCHealth Cherry Creek Medical Center was designed as a true community medical center.  It was built on an urban site in the Cherry Creek neighborhood and offers primary and advanced care specialties, including audiology, cardiology, rheumatology, and urology to meet the needs of the local population.

The medical center is 97,000 square feet and five stories. It includes a four-and-a-half story underground parking garage and a  full cancer center with infusion and radiation therapy as well as an imaging center. For the convenience of the patient, there’s a lab and retail pharmacy inside. Patients can get their prescriptions filled or their lab work done in the building.

The Swinerton team demonstrated the efficiency and value of using advanced technology to build and refine the space.  This included installing a fairly new waterproofing system call Grace Preprufe SCS which removed two months from the construction schedule over traditional two-sided wall forming methods.  Plus, the team used our clean construction protocols and COVID-19 plan to keep the space clean throughout construction.
