Build to Suit Relocation
32,000 Square Feet
Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) is a national nonprofit health organization comprised of hospitals, long-term care, assisted and residential living facilities, community health service organizations and home health agencies.
Gola exclusively represented Catholic Health Initiatives in the consolidation of two existing lease locations into a new 32,000 square foot build to suit office in Exton which serves as the regional headquarters for national staff as well as a central billing office for the region. The negotiated turnkey purchase price of this transaction was $50 per square foot below the subsequent sale of the contiguous sister building.
In addition to the standard programming and project management services offered, CHI elected to utilize the full range of design services available to Gola clients. While project management worked with IT and CHI national construction resources to design define and procure the infrastructure for the new facility, Design worked with a CHI relocation committee in the specification and selection of finishes, new furniture procurement, and facility relocation coordination. Great efforts were made in addressing ergonomic issues and staff concerns in the planning of this multi function facility.
