Kaiser Permanente conceived the Rancho Cucamonga Medical Office Building in response to a growing member population and the need for expanded services in the immediate and surrounding communities. The project is located in Rancho Cucamonga on a nine-acre parcel located east of Red Oak Street between Arrow Route and Civic Center Drive.

In order to meet a fast-track schedule, the team of Frank R. Webb Architects, Intelisyn, and Hamilton Construction proposed a Design-Control-Construct approach to project delivery. This approach enabled Kaiser Permanente to achieve their quality and schedule goals and achieve an accelerated completion date while utilizing Kaiser's traditional contracting systems and procedures.

Site Considerations

Located on 9 acres of open vineyard, the project site took its context from the environmental setting. In the siting of the building, consideration was given to such factors as strong regional winds, access and circulation, relationship to the mountains and vineyard, and potential expansion plans. The team maintained as much of the original vineyard as possible, providing a gathering space adjacent to the conference facilities shaded by a grapevine covered trellis, as well as a landscaped island within the vineyard with seating and grass volleyball court.
