Sask Valley Health Care Centre
When the first estimates came in, the ownership group knew they couldn't make the numbers work. The project was close to falling apart, but then they called 3twenty.
Three medical professionals came together with a plan to build a new multi-disciplinary medical facility, the Sask Valley Health Care Centre (SVHCC). All three of them had a long history of practicing their respective disciplines in Rosthern, and believed that if they could come together in one facility, they would be able to better serve the community. In 2017, the ownership group went down the conventional path of building a project. They hired an architect who developed a great space program and initial design. From there, they went to the market for pre-construction pricing. When the first estimates came in, the ownership group knew they couldn’t make the numbers work. When the project was close to falling apart, their banker recommended they give 3twenty a call.
When we first met with Dr. Kirk Ewen, Dr. Jess Melle, and Kevin Melnyk, it was clear that they were passionate about Rosthern and serving the community. They had a great vision for a beautiful, modern, bright space that would be welcoming to patients, and help attract and retain medical professionals. The original architect did great work on the initial design. We worked with the SVHCC group to drive value into the design; we simplified some of the mechanical requirements, and kept the vision for a beautiful, modern space.
After several design revisions and pricing exercises, we moved into construction in January 2020; we were pleased to turn over the building to the SVHCC ownership group in August 2020.
The building has five connected, but distinct spaces: Doctors Vision Care (Optometry practice and dispensary), Sask Valley Pharmacy, Rosthern Medical Clinic, a mixed-used medical wing, and a beautiful waiting area. The SVHCC group was very diligent and planned every detail with our design team. As a result, not only are all the spaces very functional and practical, but they also integrated thoughtful architectural details and features, inside and out.
We performed full design-build and general contracting scope.
Our process reduced the design and construction process by about 50%
Our scope included the detail design, supply, and install of a complex millwork package for all disciplines.
Special consideration given to acoustic separation of spaces.
Size: 9,757 ft²
Location: Rosthern, SK

"The team at 3twenty was excellent to work with. We were really happy with the design process; they just seemed to get what our needs were and meshed with our interests. I'm going to miss working with them actually. Having them around was a lot of fun." - Dr. Jess Melle, Rosthern Medical Clinic
