Hammes Company Selected as Owner’s Rep for MetroHealth’s Campus Transformation
The MetroHealth System has selected Hammes Company, the nation’s leading healthcare facilities development company, as the Owner’s Rep for the campus transformation. Hammes Company has a rich project history of managing large capital redevelopment programs for hospital systems in the United States, with experience managing more than 57 million square feet of complex expansion, renovation, replacement and greenfield campus development projects. In this role for MetroHealth, the firm will oversee all project management aspects of the construction, ensuring that plans are completed on schedule. Local firms Moody Nolan and Signet will partner with Hammes Company in the Owner’s Rep role. MetroHealth’s Board of Trustees approved hiring the companies at its regularly scheduled board meeting last night.
MetroHealth is delivering on its commitment to making diversity and local hiring top priorities in the construction of the new campus. Moody Nolan is the largest African-American owned and operated architecture firm in the country. The firm managed the renovation of the MetroHealth Lyndhurst Health Center in 2016. Signet is a Cleveland-based firm, which served as the Owner’s Rep for the building of the MetroHealth Brecksville Health and Surgery Center.
The three firms will work from a new space on the ground floor of a building at MetroHealth’s main campus that has been designated as construction headquarters. The shared location was designed for improved communication and collaboration, which will result in time and cost savings.
