News Release: PMB Kicks Off Construction of Goleta Valley Medical Plaza


Pacific Medical Buildings begins construction of a 52,000 square foot, two-story medical office building in Goleta, Calif.

GOLETA, Calif., May 1, 2015 – Construction is under way for the new 52,000 square foot, two-story medical office building on the Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital campus in Goleta, California. PMB is providing program management, development, leasing and design management services for the project, all on behalf of Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital and Cottage Health System.

The new medical office building, Goleta Valley Medical Plaza, is part of a larger, campus-wide project that includes the construction of a new, two-story acute care hospital spanning 152,000 square feet. The newly constructed hospital, which will open this summer, will meet new state seismic safety standards, and include an Emergency Department double that of its previous location and provide 52 beds with all private rooms. The new hospital also will feature an expanded Surgical Services Department and award-winning Center for Wound Management.

Goleta Valley Medical Plaza will be situated on a 2-acre site adjacent to Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital. It will replace an existing on-campus medical office building, providing state-of-the-art multi-specialty outpatient space for community physicians. The design of the new medical office building will complement the new hospital and local surroundings with the use of stone accents and native landscaping. Sustainable design and building practices will be implemented throughout the new facility. The building will also feature custom designed medical office suites and convenient parking located directly next to the building.

Although the new medical office building will be constructed within just several feet of an existing, functionally obsolete medical office building, both the new hospital and the existing medical office building will remain open and active during the construction period of the new medical office building. Maintaining hospital campus operations, parking availability and minimizing construction debris have always been at the forefront of PMB’s strategic planning of the project. Valet parking and a shuttle service are currently available at the hospital’s main entrance off of South Patterson Ave. Free, self-parking will continue to be available in the large parking lot across the street from the hospital at the corner of Hollister and South Patterson.

The construction of Goleta Valley Medical Plaza is scheduled to be complete in January 2016 and is 100% leased. The existing medical office building will be demolished immediately thereafter and the overall project completed mid-August 2016. The Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital campus is located at the corner of South Patterson Avenue and Hollister Avenue in Goleta, CA. This is the first project PMB has developed for Cottage Health System.

In addition to PMB serving as program manager, SWA Architects, specialists in innovative design solutions, is providing architectural services for the MOB. Snyder Langston, one of Southern California’s largest and most respected builders, will serve as the project’s general contractor.
