Building a medical building construction project brings unique challenges, requiring a builder who has specific knowledge and focus in the healthcare market. A builder must understand how healthcare facilities function. They must understand current building codes and environmental regulations, and have the experience in dealing with complex government regulation requirements like ADA, OSHA and OSHPD. We are very proud of our track record for Medical and OSHPD build out and we continue to deliver the best quality projects on time and on budget ConAm is proud to have been selected by USC and real estate developer Trammel Crow to be the design build contractor for these two marquee healthcare projects.
