FEATURED PROJECT

Bhatti GI Clinic and Ambulatory Surgery Center

Edina, MN

Bhatti GI partnered with RJM Construction to enhance patient care through the development of an 80,000-square-foot medical office in Edina. In conjunction with Pope Design Group and Innovative Structural Solutions, RJM managed the planning and construction of a four-story facility, creatively addressing space limitations by incorporating lower-level parking. The design and implementation of the MEP systems were spearheaded by RJM's Director of MEP, guaranteeing the incorporation of cutting-edge standards for the surgery center. The upper floors currently accommodate Bhatti GI's clinic and ambulatory surgery center, with the possibility of further vertical expansion in the future.


Date Completed: October 2023
