Six months after the beginning of construction on the new Froedtert Health Medical Group-Menomonee Falls Clinic in Menomonee Falls, Wis., Ryan Companies US, Inc. has reached the “fully-enclosed and water-tight” milestone in the construction and development process.

The Menomonee Falls Clinic, at the northeast intersection of Town Hall Road and Custer Lane, is a five-story, 145,000-square-foot medical office building. It will replace the existing Froedtert Health Menomonee Falls Clinic that includes primary care and specialty service practices and functions.

According to Nick Kaminski, senior project manager with Ryan Companies, as part of the natural construction process, certain interior elements have been further defined. For example, near the elevator bank and main reception desk, an open staircase that serves both functional and aesthetic purposes has been added between the first and second floors.

With core and shell construction in full swing since May, a parallel effort has been the interior programming and space planning that is being completed by Anderson Mikos Architects.

The Menomonee Falls Clinic will include primary care and specialty services, and house more than 90 physicians and providers to complement the health services provided at Community Memorial Hospital.  More than 250 staff members will be employed at the clinic when it opens in the fall of 2012.

The building is being constructed on an 11-acre site owned by Ryan. The core and shell of the building was designed by Wright Heerema Architects.  Additional members of the project team include TGRWA for structural engineering, and GRAEF-USA for civilengineering and landscape architecture.  Ryan is providing design-build construction services.

“We are making great progress with the project,” said Kaminski. “It is exciting to see this building progress from architectural drawings to the actual concrete and steel.”
