Scott + Reid Completed Construction on med fusion Global Headquarters June 2010

Scott + Reid, a full-service commercial construction company specializing in interior finish and ground-up construction, announced completion of the med fusion, llc. global headquarters in Lewisville, Texas. A highly unique and fast-paced project, the 172,000 square-foot building was converted to a high quality, state of the art pathology office and clinical laboratory in just five months.

"We are excited about the partnership we built with med fusion and to announce the completion of such a needed, revolutionary facility," said Scott + Reid President Brad Reid. "This was a truly unique project and Scott + Reid's experience in reconfiguring existing buildings was critical to the successful completion of this project for this medical pioneer."

Baylor Health Care System, Texas Oncology PA, Pathologists Biomedical Laboratories LLP and US Oncology joined together to create med fusion (originally called 'NewCo'), which will integrate advanced laboratory services and clinical trials services. Following construction completion, 150 employees moved into the building, representing 100 new jobs for the area. By 2014, med fusion plans to hire 900 employees.

The $12,000,000 construction project included new mechanical systems with high tech, automated controls, low-temperature walk-in refrigeration units, modernization of existing plumbing to accommodate new laboratory systems, data room infrastructure, and new office space. The clinical areas were finished out as a biosafety level 3 lab, clean room lab, biopsy review lab, research and development lab, and clinical trial area. In addition, Scott + Reid was responsible for reconfiguring the building with a distinctive architectural composite metal panel system façade, additional glass curtainwall and significant structural modifications. Extensive site work, development of ADA-compliant parking and entrance, and the installation of multiple water features and customized landscaping completed the comprehensive re-model project.

Scott + Reid was hired in November 2009 to convert the ConVergence Office Center located at 2501 State Highway 121 in Lewisville, which was first constructed in 1980 and previously served as an artillery development and production facility.

"From the very beginning of our partnership, we put a great deal of confidence in Scott + Reid's ability to work with us to ensure a smooth construction process," said Keith Laughman, med fusion CEO. "This was a highly technical and complex project, and Scott + Reid's knowledge and experience were critical to the success of the project. They delivered timely results and a top quality finished product."

Prior to construction start, Scott + Reid was instrumental in assisting with design development, partnering with the client (med fusion, llc.), construction manager (CB Richard Ellis, Inc.), architect (RSP Architects) and engineers (Sebesta Blomberg) to design and finalize construction documents.

"Scott + Reid is excited to have played a part in such a successful project," Reid added. "med fusion is bringing a new standard of quality to patient care in North Texas with its advanced laboratory and clinical trials services."
