If you have plans to build a new medical or dental practice in Portland or anywhere else in Oregon, select an Oregon healthcare construction company to provide assistance. But prior to putting a down payment on services, ensure the business has what it takes to build you a great practice. Pay special attention to these four facets for the maximum positive results.
First, the Oregon healthcare construction company should provide an ample list of past projects that are still in existence today. Without such information, how will your dental or medical practice have strong legs to stand on? You are greatly risking your own reputation by blindly selecting an Oregon healthcare construction company. Knowing what the company has done before in the lines of dental office construction and medical office construction helps you figure out whether you like what the company does as well.
Second, the Oregon healthcare construction company should handle every aspect of the construction of your medically or dental based facility. There must be programming services available, space planning services for you, design services available and actual construction too. If a company provides just the construction and relies on other companies to handle the design and other elements, it could create confusion for your facility. Ensure the Oregon healthcare construction does it all, and that it does it all well too.
Third, the Oregon healthcare construction company should openly talk about its plans for your practice through an initial consultation that is of no cost to you. At the most, there would be a nominal fee for such a consultation, but generally solid medical construction companies have site plans that could envelop what you do and could give you more general information on how the facility would turn out. Specifics are not key here, since this is ultimately what you will be paying for in a Portland dental construction or medical construction business, but at the very least an idea should be presented by the company during your meeting.
Fourth, the Oregon healthcare construction company should have experience building for various sites around Portland and the state. The sites should be varied, and so should the specialties. For instance, dental construction companies should have experience building medical practices and vice versa. Of course, some Oregon healthcare construction companies will have greater strengths in one region or another, but the general idea is that these businesses have a nice breadth and depth of experience.
