San Diego-based general contractor and construction management firm BSD Builders Inc. recently broke ground on Inland Valley Medical Center's awaited expansion. The 45,000-square-foot project will offer at least 27 new emergency treatment rooms, 10 new ICU beds, emergency services, imaging suite and various other enhanced spaces. In total, more than 30,000 square feet will be added and 15,000 square feet of existing space will be remodeled.
Universal Health Services Inc. (UHS), which owns and operates Inland Valley Medical Center, selected BSD Builders for pre-construction and general contracting services through a process that focused on performance and knowledge of similar types of projects versus a competitive hard bid method.
"We knew this project would test the most seasoned builder," said Tim Rielly, UHS regional project manager. "Our selection was based on delivery and competence. We needed to know that the team had what it takes to stand up to the challenges of an OSHPD expansion. Our decision has already paid off."
Steve Sherrer, a BSD Builders principal, said, "This opportunity represents everything we look for in a project; technically demanding, logistically challenging, and most importantly a client that believes in achieving common goals. Our team is determined to solve any challenge with unfiltered dialogue and absolute resolution. There's not a single obstacle that will hinder this team's momentum."
By combining sound business practices and a true passion for building, BSD Builders has established a reputation of delivering results in today's technically demanding construction environment.
"Our focus is to create more than just another construction company, we want a company with values and purpose," said Sherrer. "The framework of our organization was established with four fundamental values: integrity, our first form of reasoning; discipline, which fuels our business; passion as our driving force; and relationships nurtured with trust and accountability. These values have supported our true purpose: building with care."
Specializing in commercial, health care, industrial and corporate improvements, BSD Builders Inc. offers an array of building solutions including preconstruction, GMP estimating, online project management tools, CPM scheduling and a comprehensive close-out process. Whether it's a multiphased hospital expansion or fast track commercial development, BSD Builders is poised to solve the most demanding needs of any project.
