Kaiser Permanente Puyallup Clinic


The Puyallup Clinic owner challenged the design and construction team to implement their patient care model into a new prototype building. The 52,000 square-foot, two-story building with 42 primary care exam/treatment rooms in three care pods has the capacity to serve up to 30,000 patients each year. A green roof and high-efficiency mechanical system helped the project reach LEED Gold certification. The design team used a lean manufacturing method called the production preparation process, or 3P, which focuses on eliminating waste through product and process design. The project utilized Building Information Modeling (BIM) throughout the design and construction process to enhance communication and collaboration between team members. The stunning, iconic canopy is the crowning achievement of the building’s design and serves as a welcoming beacon to the community.
