Project Overview

Owner Jefferson County Health Center
Location Fairfield, Iowa
Delivery Method Construction Management Agency
Description New Construction
Gross Floor Area 116,000 SF

Carl A. Nelson & Company performed as the Owner’s agent in the role of Program and Construction Manager. As the Owner’s agent, Carl A. Nelson & Company led in the architect selection, completed pre-bid budget analysis with value engineering, and managed the bidding process.  In addition, Carl A. Nelson & Company managed the construction process, assisted in medical equipment and furniture selection, and collaborated with the hospital to create a detailed schedule of their move to their new critical access hospital.

The replacement hospital includes a 25-bed med/surg, OR, endoscopy procedure room, PACU, emergency department, imaging department, pharmacy, lab, cafeteria, administrative offices, and six medical clinics. The hospital was designed based on the “Green Guide for Heath Care” principles.  In fact, the online magazine, GreenBuildingNEWS, wrote an article about the project. 

Guided by Green

When planners sat down to design the new Jefferson County Health Center in Fairfield, Iowa, they started with a unique repertoire of tools and direction.

The 115,000 square-foot, $25 million replacement facility for the existing 25-bed acute care hospital needed to make the most of its rural attributes while ascribing to the Green Guide for Health Care — a best practices guide for healthy and sustainable building design, construction and operations.
