MacDill Air Force Base Clinic

Customer: U.S. Air Force
Location: MacDill Air Force Base, Florida
Major Services:  Initial Outfitting; Furniture, Fixtures & Equipment (FF&E)

Project Overview: As part of a military-wide initiative to move away from costly inpatient services and streamline healthcare, a new 254,000-sq.-ft. “super clinic” was built as a replacement to MacDill Air Force Base’s mid-century eight-building medical complex. The full-service clinic provides an array of services, including dental care, imaging, physical therapy, cardiology and internal medicine, and on average, sees 300 to 350 patients a day.

To support the building of the new clinic, Cazador staff performed relocation planning, equipment inventory and procurement, interior design services, move supervision, product installation, and necessary equipment testing to fully outfit the facility. This included medical equipment and clinical case goods; information technology equipment; communications systems; furniture and fixtures; artwork; and resource protection and security systems.

Additionally, Cazador provided all performance based-services associated with Initial Outfitting, such as project management; transition/relocation planning; planning/design and technical support; product selection; storage; installation; testing; training; and warranty support. This project required the coordination of Equipment Specialists, Interior Designers, Movers, Installers, and Assistant PMs to install new FF&E and transition more than 70 truckloads of existing items to the new location.

The Cazador Difference: The Cazador team worked closely with the facilities staff and their subcontractors to develop a plan to execute the move of the entire facility over a 72-hour period.  This plan included the pre-installation of complete building protection, pre-staging moving vehicles and personal items, and the completion of all medical equipment testing/preparation at an off-site warehouse prior to the move. The Cazador team provided on-site supervision for all assignments, in addition to complete subcontractor management. All assignments met government requirements for quality installation and were completed in accordance with the design specifications. Additionally, all task orders were completed within the approved budget. The Senior PM and Cazador were recognized for their success during a grand opening dinner by Colonel Dennis Beatty (6MDG/CC).
