The Makena Medical Center is a three-story, 45,000 square foot, steel frame building sited just ¼ mile from the new Palomar Medical Center West Hospital. Features of the building include state of the art technology, sustainable LEED registered design, futuristic design appointments in exterior, interior and common areas and outdoor plazas. Additional amenities include a stone veneer exterior and an extensive aluminum curtain wall system. The lobby includes a healing water feature to welcome visitors.
Barnhart-Reese and McArdle & Associates Architects provided design-build services for the facility. The project consists of two phases, core and shell, and tenant improvements for each office suite. Tenant improvements were built-to-suit.
Through collaboration with the Temecula Fire Department and City of Temecula Building and Safety, Barnhart-Reese arranged a creative means of water source through use of adjacent irrigation which allowed framing to begin ahead of schedule and at reduced cost of construction for the owner.
