Project Overview

  • Healthcare

Over the years, Kaiser Permanente has commissioned Klassen Corporation for 8 of their local building projects. These projects include the Kaiser Permanente Medical Office Buildings in East Hills, Ming, Stockdale, Lancaster, San Dimas, Santa Clarita, Simi Valley, and Thousand Oaks.

With each of these projects, Klassen took into consideration each project’s unique issues and devoted careful attention to creating a comfortable environment for both medical staff and patients.

The East Hills project was the first re-use of the prototype developed for Kaiser multi-provider, medical office buildings. The East Hills facility totals 20,570 square feet.

In an effort to create some degree of individuality for this 20,570 square foot facility, a different exterior color scheme, a new interior design package and landscape theme was developed. As a result of the re-use, significant savings in cost and time for completion were achieved for Kaiser.

Based upon the successful adaptation of the Kaiser multi-provider prototype designed and constructed by Klassen Corporation, the client requested the third implementation of the facility conceived for the Stockdale medical office building.

With the same strategy in mind, the client acquired a site of similar size, 5.5 acres. Klassen was instructed to provide a new exterior color palette, new interior design package and different landscape plan to enhance the visual elements of the project.

Our commission was to design and construct a medical office building to serve as a single prototype for future re-use by the client. In the increasingly complex market-driven health care profession, it makes economic sense to develop, refine and replicate successful project configurations. Although cost was an
issue, careful attention was devoted to create a comfortable environment for both medical staff and patients.

The Stockdale Highway facility accommodates 12 health care providers with supporting ancillary services, Radiology, Laboratory, Pharmacy, Patient Chart Room, as well as Administration, Conference and Staff Lounge facilities. The structure totals 20,570 square feet and is symmetrically designed around a central axis with two patient entrances and two physician entrances.

The symmetrical design permits “flipping” the next building to be oriented on any site. The 5.43-acre site allows the construction of another similar size structure for future growth. Expansive landscaping features around the building include a ribbon-like creek bed with riparian planting which were included to recreate a natural environment for an inviting atmosphere for members.

Medical Office Building,
Lancaster, CA

Kaiser’s existing facility in Lancaster consisted of 2 buildings — the west building with 38,050 square feet and the east building with 14,256 square feet. The west building was comprised of an original building dating from the 1960’s, with an addition and remodel from the 1980’s. The east building was a modular building hastily added in the late 80’s to meet the accelerated growth in the area.

Klassen was commissioned to develop an expansion that not only created digs for 12 additional providers, but also linked the three buildings together, creating a functional environment.

To achieve the connection of buildings, the parking facilities had to be relocated to the perimeter of the complex. Klassen added vehicle drop-off points and a pedestrian plaza with covered walks for weather protection and separation from vehicular traffic.

The new 27,510 square foot facility includes relocated and expanded chartroom, ophthalmology, optical dispensing, physical therapy and laboratory. The building also included 12 new provider offices, 24 examining rooms and related support areas.

In response to the evolving changes in the health care delivery system, the client requested the master planning and development of a second prototype for medical office buildings. This project was coordinated to satisfy the needs of a separate medical service area. This 23, 716 square foot complex was designed to accommodate 12 providers (6 adult providers and 6 pediatric medicine) and contains examination rooms, special procedure rooms with holding beds, reception and triage, central waiting areas, pharmacy, radiology, blood draw and laboratory, mammography and radiology, central chart room and ancillary facilities.

Klassen Corporation in conjunction with the commissioned architect constructed this 43,633 square foot facility. Included in this facility is space for 18 provider offices, 36 examining rooms, pharmacy, chartroom, administrative offices, physical therapy, radiology and laboratory. Our commission also included seismic upgrade and retrofit of the existing facility after the Northridge earthquake.

Simi Valley, CA

This facility is the third utilization of the 23,716 square foot “Prototype 2” medical office building designed by Klassen Corporation. The original prototype structural system allowed for interior modifications to provide modules reflecting the client’s current method of patient care delivery without any structural modifications. The result is a stunning faciilty that comfortably accommodates 12
physicians with exam rooms, holding beds, reception, triage, pharmacy, radiology, blood draw and laboratory and other facilities.

Medical Office Building,
Thousand Oaks, CA

The unique challenge presented for the design and construction of this 23,716 square foot facility was the environmental requirement to protect all existing native live oak trees located on the site. This project was the first re-use of the second prototype developed for the client and originally built in the city of San Dimas, California. The learning curve experience resulting from earlier projects enabled our firm to provide additional amenities, such as upgraded finishes at a lower total cost for the client.
