Palo Alto Medical Foundation


Posted By on Feb 13, 2015

Long-standing client Palo Alto Medical Foundation chose Slatter Construction to build or remodel eight facilities. Projects for PAMF: Santa Cruz Main Campus, 2011 Commercial Crossing, 2008 Research Park, 2006 Locust Street, 2000 Westside Santa Cruz, 1997 Watsonville, 1994 Chanticleer Street, 1992 Old Dominion Court, 1990 Most recently Slatter completed the remodel of the 40-year-old Main Campus location, a job that came with one stipulation: maintain patient care. Brought in on time and on budget, the job was scheduled over 17 phases to allow each department to be moved and remodeled serially. “Our primary responsibility was to deliver a remodeled facility without impacting patient care,” said Slatter Construction president Sid Satter. “Everyone working on the job had a clear understanding that the client included both staff and patients.” This is the kind of innovative, flexible solution Slatter Constuction creates to meet client needs. Medical facility construction brings its own unique challenges—medical equipment carries exacting specs, permitting requirements often evolve over the course of a job and the demands of high traffic patient care can strain every element of a building’s infrastructure. » READ THE CASE STUDY “The Main Campus remodel was extremely difficult because we had to keep the facility open day in and day out”, said Tom Hart, vice president of physician affairs and business development for PAMF. “The job required a lot of planning, creativity, coordination and follow through. Many times we made a plan and, based on the needs of the patient care providers, we had to revise the plan. Working together with our architect and Slatter Construction as a team we maintained the flexibility to make changes and remain on budget and on schedule.” Tom Hart Vice President of Physician Affairs and Business Development, PAMF The Slatter Construction Toolbox: Experience and Knowledge of Client Needs Dedication to Communication Adaptive Construction Techniques Flexible Scope of...

New Leaf Markets


Posted By on Feb 13, 2015

The New Leaf Market on the west side of Santa Cruz is a testament to Slatter Construction’s ability to get the job done. Hired by both the landowner and grocery company to put up the building and build out the store, Slatter was able to reduce the overall construction calendar by more than three months. Projects for New Leaf Community Markets: Pleasanton – 2013 Silver Creek, San Jose – 2011 West Side Santa Cruz – 2010 Downtown Santa Cruz – 2009 Half Moon Bay – 2008 Bloom Total Body Care – 2004 “I love working with Slatter Construction. They get it. They think ahead and understand that we have a business to run. Once they completed Half Moon Bay it was easy to make the decision to hire them again. They are excellent communicators and take the time to explain everything. They go out of their way to keep store managers informed and minimize their impact on the flow of business. They also treat their subcontractors well, which makes a big difference to the end result for the client.” Rex Stuart General Manager and Co-Owner New Leaf...

Mixed-Used Buildings


Posted By on Feb 13, 2015

Meltzer Building This 2700 square foot, two-story office building was erected in 2005. Solari Building This mixed-use building offers commercial space downstairs and a residential unit above. At the client’s request work was done on an expedited schedule to complete the project in just five months. Awotos Village This mixed-use project required new construction of one building with commercial space on the ground floor and two rental units above, and a tenant improvement job for the second building. Together, they now house The Pain Clinic in Aptos. The tenant improvement job involved a run down building with an historic appearance. To protect the look of the building and bring it up to code, Slatter built a new foundation and replaced walls without altering the façade. “There are challenges with every construction project, and Slatter had a dedicated foreman on the job every day to resolve issues as they came up. The service was great, and I’d highly recommend them.” Paul Meltzer...

This 60,000 sq. ft. tenant improvement project required a change of use from office to school — and compliance with a much more stringent set of code standards. By acting as liaison with the City, Slatter effectively implemented all of the work required by the new regulations and realized significant cost savings for the school. “It was a pleasure to work with Slatter Construction. The project management was thoroughly reliable and the quality of work was excellent. During the course of our remodeling project, the City required a number of changes and Slatter was very flexible in working with us. Our architect suggested that they were a company well worth considering and I found them to be friendly, responsive and honest.” Josh Kirby Head of...
