03 May Healthcare Development Trends | Clinical Office Construction Cost vs R.O.I.
What is the cost of design and construction for medical office space? We have an app for that!
Estimating Healthcare Facility Cost
The environment plays a critical role in affecting the quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery. Hiring an experienced architect can help you save money during construction and throughout operations.
In a study representing 45 clinical care practices including acute care, chronic management and preventative care for all ages from 1994 to 2016, the American Association of Family Physicians task force states that the new model of family practice services should be “accessible, accountable, comprehensive, integrated, patient-centered, safe, scientifically valid, and satisfying to both patient and their physicians.”
In addition, basic growth in the population and added access to health care makes it even more imperative to balance the cost given today’s healthcare environment.
Here at CMArchitects PLLC, we have developed an application that allows the physician or manager of a clinical practice to realize relative cost implication of design, finishes and material decisions before allocating time and money to the drawing/construction process.

The application also has the ability to evaluate relative interest cost appreciation if decisions are delayed as well as provide rent allowance cost overruns if this is requisite information. The program uses 187 unit cost categories from a national database and analysis of 97 different upgrade options that will provide immediate feedback on the relative cost differences.
Contact CMArchitects PLLC to learn more. We can discuss each programmatic element, compare current work flows discovered in field research with ideal work flows, and established key spatial adjacency and technical requirements for each programmed area to help you streamline patient flow for an efficient clinic.
