Unity Surgical Arts is a 2-story, 30,000 square-foot surgery center completed in 2004, conventional structural steel. Ancon was brought on board at the design development stage to work with the architect on budgeting. The building team redesigned the mechanical systems to bring the project into the budget. Pre-construction services included cost estimating, scheduling, and value engineering—negotiated Lump Sum General Construction Agreement. While not technically a design-build project since the Owner held the contract for the architect, Ancon worked closely with ACI Boland during the design phase to maintain the schedule and budget. The project cost 4.5 million.
