Area’s fourth-largest employer adds space, providers with trusted development team
ALBANY – Rubicon Investments is developing a new, replacement medical office building in North Albany for The Corvallis Clinic, with partners, TVA Architects and LCG Pence Construction. A ground-breaking ceremony to kick off construction will occur Monday, Jan. 8 at noon at the new facility located on NW North Albany Road, between Highway 20 and NW Hickory Street. A strong, consistent team has been assembled to bring the building to life.
Developer Rubicon Investments has a branch location in Corvallis, and a tenant-landlord relationship with The Corvallis Clinic through current holdings. “We take great pride in our relationship with The Corvallis Clinic,” said Daniel Bunn, President and CEO of Rubicon Investments. “We are honored to continue this partnership with an expansion that allows The Clinic to provide excellent care to more people in the communities they serve.”
The new building will increase the size of The Clinic’s current North Albany presence, growing square footage from 7,200 in the previous Village location to approximately 15,000, and a second floor with space for eight providers. “The facility will improve patient access,” said Brad Wakefield, CEO of The Corvallis Clinic. “We have a long-standing partnership with Rubicon, and an opportunity to expand services in the Albany area.”
This project is applying a new approach to design and construction that is both patient and provider centric. “Our team has an incredible talent for collaborating and understanding the tenant’s need from workflow to the overall customer experience,” said Justin Hurley Braswell, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer for Rubicon. “I am very excited to have been able to share this expertise with The Corvallis Clinic and am looking forward to this project breaking ground.”
Mandy Butler, Principal at TVA Architects said, “Given our long relationships with Rubicon Investments and LCG Pence Construction, everyone at TVA Architects is excited to deliver a thoughtful architectural solution to support the continued success of The Corvallis Clinic staff and wellness of their patients. We are extremely proud to design a new facility that will increase the amount of providers and services in the North Albany Area.”
LCG Pence recently completed construction of a large development for Rubicon. Principal Paul Schulz said the firm is thrilled to partner on another project. “Rubicon is an exceptional developer and has forged a tight project team,” said Schulz. “The medical construction market in the Willamette Valley, including Albany and Corvallis, provides ample opportunities for us to work with local contractors. We’re all excited to get underway.”
The Corvallis Clinic is scheduled to move in by late fall of 2018. The Clinic, an independent, physician-led medical group, is a comprehensive multi-specialty organization, serving Benton, Linn and Lincoln counties. It offers more than 100 board-certified providers and advanced professionals in 27 specialties at 10 area locations. As the fourth-largest area employer, The Clinic has 600 employees.
