One of the most significant healthcare projects in Southern Arizona history was celebrated Thursday when groundbreaking took place at Banner-University Medical Center Tucson on the University of Arizona campus.

A Sundt joint venture with DPR Construction will build the nine-story, 670,000-square-foot facility. The new tower replaces one that has been used for more than 40 years.
When the new tower opens in spring 2019, it will include:
- A main entry, cafeteria and support departments on the first floor.
- Diagnostic imaging, diagnostic cardiology, cardiac cath labs and interventional radiology on the second floor.
- Operating rooms and patient prep/recovery space on the third floor.
- 204 patient rooms in floors five through nine.
- Shelled space on the ninth floor for 24 more patient rooms.
More than $50 million in new patient care equipment and computers are being added for state-of-the-art care.
Banner-UMC Tucson plays an important role in the health of Southern Arizona residents and visitors; it’s the only Level 1 Trauma Center in the region.
Updates and a webcam can be found on the project website.

A unique approach to senior living construction helped Sundt and owner Royal Oaks earn Medical Office Project of the Year from the North American Industrial Office Properties Association Arizona Chapter.
The honor, given for the Friendship House at Royal Oaks Memory Care Facility, was presented this past weekend at an awards ceremony and dinner at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix.
Friendship House, located in Sun City, Arizona, is a 53,000-square-foot senior living facility located near the center of the 38-acre community. It provides memory care in a residential setting, moving away from the skilled-care model that has been the norm in retirement communities.
The new design concept allows for more efficient staffing and flexibility in a comfortable setting that supports individual needs of residents. Personalization is achieved through four “neighborhoods” of 14 residents each that have distinct interior design themes and create smaller-scale living environments.
This was the sixth project we have performed for Royal Oaks.

Kids Excel El Paso, one of the grant recipients in the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2016, uses dance to teach students how to work hard, strive for their personal best and never give up.
Sundt’s employee-owners and company have a long-standing tradition of caring about their communities. It’s one of the reasons the Sundt Foundation was formed in 1999.
That tradition of giving back was going strong in the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2016, when the Foundation awarded 47 grants totaling $111,921.88. The money was raised through donations by employee-owners and matching contributions by the company.
Over its lifetime, the Sundt Foundation has given more than $7 million in grants to non-profits that help disadvantaged adults and children. Most of that support went to organizations in Arizona, California and Texas.
The dedicated men and women of our armed forces bravely serve our country every day, often putting themselves in harm’s way to protect our freedom.
When off-duty, military personnel have unique housing needs and Sundt has often been called upon to construct quarters at bases. Service members and their families often live on base for short periods of time before moving on. Our latest project provides 30 temporary housing units to support those temporarily stationed at Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, Arizona.
The facility is 42,000 square feet and is modeled after apartment complexes. The units have more room than a hotel and are perfect for either a single airman or one with a family.
“With the new F35 training contract, Luke has pilots coming in from around the world,” said Sundt Project Manager Chris Tinney. “While they are in transition (either in or out of the base) the new temporary lodging facility provides perfect accommodations for our military families until they are able to make more permanent arrangements.”
Work was substantially completed in September. Our teams performed similar federal construction projects at Fort Campbell in Kentucky, Fort Hood in Texas and Fort Polk in Louisiana.
Our company is committed to the American military. We’re proud to build projects that improve the lives of service members who do so much to make our country great.
