JM Coull Begins Multimillion-Dollar Renovation for Lowell Community Health Center
MAYNARD, MA JM Coull (JMC) recently broke ground at Lowell Community Health Center's (Lowell CHC) 101 Jackson Street site in Lowell, Massachusetts. The firm is renovating 68,000 square feet of space across six floors in a former mill building to create a new medical facility for Lowell CHC patients. The completed space will house dental, optometry, and adult primary care medicine, and has a total value of $26 million. JMC is working with Durkee Brown Viveiros Werenfels (DBVW) Architects, R.W. Sullivan, TEC Inc., and Yoder & Tidwell, Ltd. on the project.
101 Jackson Street marks JMC's third project with Lowell CHC. Previous work included medical office renovations on Warren and Merrimack Streets in Lowell. The first three floors of the renovated building will contain more than 30 exam rooms, testing rooms, an optical shop, 16 dental operatory rooms, consultation rooms, labs and imaging stations, and support spaces for Lowell CHC's CARIÃ‘O program for HIV screening, counseling, and treatment. JMC will also provide a core and shell fit-out on the fourth floor and code compliance renovations on the fifth and sixth floors.
"This is a great project for Lowell Community Health Center and the greater Lowell area," said JMC's Senior Project Manager, Jim Bourgeois. "Lowell CHC does so much good for its patients, and 101 Jackson Street will enable the organization to provide an increased level of care to folks in this community. The facility itself is quite large - the third floor alone has 26 exam rooms for adult primary care - and offers patients a "˜one-stop-shop' for meeting different healthcare needs. JM Coull is proud to be a part of this important project for Lowell CHC."
