LANSING, Mich. – A joint venture between Lansing-based The Christman Company and Southfield-based Barton Malow will be the construction managers of McLaren Greater Lansing’s new hospital adjacent to Michigan State University. Detroit-based Harley Ellis Devereaux and the Chicago office of CallisonRTKL will be the architects of the acute care hospital, officials announced today.

“McLaren is honored to be working with such a talented team to create a hospital that exceeds the expectations of clinicians and staff, improves safety, and transforms health care for patients and their families,” said Daniel Medrano, Vice President of Facility Management for McLaren Health Care, a native and resident of Lansing. “By combining the talent of companies in Lansing and throughout Michigan with national expertise, we have assembled a unique team to design and build the health care campus that will care for our community for generations to come.”

McLaren Greater Lansing is also working with the following Michigan-based companies on the new hospital project:

• Kramer Management Group (Lansing, Michigan) is providing program management services as an extension of the hospital. KMG is leading the coordination effort on all aspects of the multi-faceted project including project planning, project budgeting, design guidance, oversight of project contractors, owner equipment procurement assistance, move management assistance and assisting with transition to the operations team at the completion of the project.

• Pace Howe Design (Lansing, Michigan) is serving as a consultant to the hospital to guide the selection and design of interior finishes. PHD will also be leading the furniture and artwork planning, selection process and installation.

• C2AE (Lansing, Michigan) is providing civil engineering consulting services to the hospital related to offsite infrastructure. This includes analysis of utility systems and roadways leading to the new development site to determine what improvements will be needed to support development.

• PEA (Troy, Michigan) is providing the civil engineer design services for the new development site. This includes all roadways and parking, utilities and landscaping within the property boundaries of the new development.

• Thermal Tech (Richland, Michigan) is providing consulting and commissioning services related to the oversight of the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems on the project.

• IMEG (Wixom, Michigan) is providing consulting and coordination services related to medical equipment planning and technology planning for the project.

Design-build teams for the campus’s ambulatory care center and cancer center portions of the project have not been determined yet.

McLaren will also launch a community input survey in May 2018 to gather feedback on the hospital’s design, the health care delivery process, and offer an opportunity to make suggestions about the project.

“Our aim is to create an innovative health care campus and transform the patient and team member experience,” said Casey Kandow, Interim President and Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Greater Lansing. “We are looking to our clinicians and staff to guide how we will care for patients in the new facility and asking the community for input on the patient and visitor experience, how the campus integrates into the area, and more.”
