DaVita Palms Valley Dialysis
The Palms Valley dialysis clinic is a 14,000-square-foot OSHPD 3 medical office building on 1.5 acres of previously undeveloped land near the Palmdale Regional Medical Center. This fast-paced project was built in just seven months. Kier + Wright provided civil design and surveying services on an expedited timeline, helping the project achieve the planning and permitting approvals needed to begin construction in time to meet the target occupancy date.
The steeply sloped 1.5-acre site is situated between pre-existing developments. Kier + Wright incorporated drive aisles into the design of the clinic’s parking, providing continuous vehicular access between the street, the clinic and the adjacent developments.
Finalizing the design of the development's ADA path of travel, which passes through a neighboring property, required coordination with several parties. Right of way considerations, coupled with the 8-foot grade differential across the compact site, added complexity to the design process. Through precise grading and use of hand rails, Kier + Wright delivered a safe, ADA-compliant route through the sloped property.
