Project Summary

Kennard East Medical Building, Welsh Construction’s latest project for MSP Commercial opened in late 2012. This one-story medical office building features a VA outpatient clinic, whose space was also built-out by Welsh Construction.

As a LEED Silver Certified building, the shell & core incorporates many sustainable design and building elements. As a result, everyone (including the tenants) will benefit from lower utility costs, energy usage, water usage, and overall operating costs.

A large portion of the site (39.6%) will be dedicated to green space, including plants, trees, shrubs, and landscaping. The building also features a “white” roof that will reduce impact on local microclimates and wildlife habitats. A detailed plan is in place to manage indoor air quality, construction waste, and other environmental issues for both the shell & core construction and tenant build-out.

Conveniently located adjacent to the Kennard Professional Building and just north of St. John’s Hospital, Kennard East will complement the strong healthcare presence in the area.
