KDMC Family Care Center Garners Award

The Associated General Contractors of Kentucky recently honored GBBN's King's Daughters Medical Center Family Care Center project, located in Grayson (KY) with a "Build Kentucky Award for Excellence".

One  of  numerous projects for Ashland, Kentucky's King's Daughters Medical Center,  this  Medical  Specialties  Clinic serves  as  a  focal point for healthcare  in  Grayson.  The  Family  Care Center,  Cardiology Clinic and Imaging  Center  provide  state-of-the-art facilities  for  physicians and specialists  in  the Carter County area. The 24,000 square foot facility is designed for expansion to meet the needs of a growing community.

The  clinic provides space for multiple physician practices and includes CT Scan,  MRI,  X-ray and Nuclear Medicine. Services are set in an environment that  is  warm  and inviting to both patients and staff. This project is an example  of  a  collaborative  effort  involving multiple owners: KDMC and Kentucky  Christian  University.  The second floor is currently designed to accommodate the KCU School of Nursing.

"The  Family Care Center at Grayson exemplifies what a collaborative effort can  achieve"  said  project  manager, David Humlong, AIA. "The design team worked  very closely with two different owners and a dedicated construction team  to  produce  a  very  nice looking, functional building that exceeded everyone's  expectations."  Humlong  added, "It was a joy to be a part of a process  that  not only resulted in a successful building project, but just as important it built strong relationships that will carry forward."

The GBBN Design Team was made up of David Humlong, David Proffitt, Jeanette McCarthy, Darren Taylor, Greg Hosfield and Michael Neureither.
