Prominent Spokane construction contractor Bouten Construction Co. is heading up three projects in the Tri-Cities with a combined value of $127 million.
The largest of the projects is a $72 million expansion of the River Pavilion at the Kadlec Regional Medical Center, in Richland, about 145 miles southwest of Spokane
The expansion includes adding four floors to the six-story inpatient tower at the hospital, says Bill Bouten, president of Bouten Construction.
The addition will have two stories for intensive care and two stories for general inpatient care.
The project also will include constructing a rooftop helicopter landing pad and upgrading the medical center’s emergency power system, Bouten says.
Davis Partnership Architects PC, of Denver, designed the project, which is scheduled to be completed next September. Kadlec is licensed for 270 beds, 94 of which will be in the addition, Davis Partnership’s website says.
Bouten Construction built the original 170,000-square-foot, six-story River Pavilion, which opened in 2008.
Also on the Kadlec Campus, Bouten Construction is erecting a $13 million parking garage, Bouten says. The five-level facility under construction in the southeast quadrant of the Kadlec campus will have 663 parking stalls and is scheduled to be completed next July, he says.
Kadlec and Renton, Wash.-based Providence Health & Services formed an affiliation last year, creating a secular nonprofit health care organization that aims to increase access to services and inpatient care at Kadlec to meet the needs of the Tri-Cities and surrounding communities, a joint announcement regarding the affiliation said.
Spokane-based Providence Health Care, a Catholic health care ministry that operates Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center & Children’s Hospital, Providence Holy Family Hospital, and other health services in Eastern Washington, also is affiliated with Providence Health & Services.
Separate from the hospital projects, Bouten Construction is the general contractor and construction manager on a $42 million multiphase expansion project at the Tri-Cities Airport, Bouten says. The airport is in Pasco, nearly 10 miles west and across the Columbia River from Kadlec.
Bouten Construction recently completed the first phase of that project, which includes a new concourse on the north side of the terminal, a temporary food and beverage area, and large, open seating areas.
The first phase of the project also includes a new kitchen and counter inside the secured area of the terminal, renovated car rental and baggage claim areas, new restrooms near the main entrance, and a new screening lane.
In the project’s second phase, which is scheduled to be completed next summer, the airport’s south-side concourse will be demolished and reconstructed, and the main lobby will be reconfigured with a relocated staircase and elevator. Also in the second phase, a new Transportation Security Administration checkpoint will be constructed, and a new dining area, coffee shop, gift shop, and bar will be located in the secure area of the terminal.
A third phase is scheduled to begin in the summer and will include renovating airline ticket counters, creating an outbound baggage area and realigning the front curb.
Combining all three phases, the project calls for adding about 46,000 square feet of floor space and renovating 57,000 square feet of floor space, Bouten says.
The Vancouver, Wash., office of Madison, Wis.-based Mead & Hunt Inc. designed the airport project.
Bouten also is continuing work on a number of previously reported health care projects, including:
•A $57 million expansion at the Kootenai Health main hospital complex, in Coeur d’Alene.
•A $19.2 million redesign and expansion of the cardiac intensive care units at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, on the lower South Hill.
•The $15 million University District Health Clinic, on the Washington State University Spokane campus.
•A $10.5 million expansion at the Kootenai Health facility in Post Falls.
