Pacific Industries & Memphis Health Center Win Design Awards

We're thrilled to announce that two A2H projects were recognized at recent awards banquets.

The Memphis Health Center was awarded a Building Memphis Award from the Memphis Business Journal in the Less than $10 Million Public/Private category.

The new Pacific Industries manufacturing facility in Jackson won an Engineering Excellence Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies of Tennessee in the Industrial and Manufacturing Processes category. 

Pacific Industries

Pacific Industries, an automobile parts manufacturer based in Japan, needed a manufacturing plant in Jackson, Tennessee to produce metal stamp products for its North America market. In order to meet current work orders and growing demand, the client’s absolute goal was to begin operations in the summer of 2015, giving 11 months from the Notice to Proceed for design and construction. 

As a result of the design team’s constant collaboration and teamwork, A2H delivered bid documents and completed permitting for the facility and site in less than six weeks. A2H’s ability to meet and exceed the tight schedule is solely due to our full service team of in-house designers and their expertise in 3D design and clash detection. 

The facility created approximately 190 new job opportunities for the region. An additional 20 acres is still available on the site to accommodate plans for future growth.

Memphis Health Center

The Memphis Health Center provides affordable and comprehensive health care services to uninsured and low-income patients in Shelby and Fayette counties. Over the past 40 years, MHC expanded its services to include internal medicine, dentistry, pediatrics, obstetrics / gynecology, onsite pharmacy, radiology, lab services, podiatry and ophthalmology. Due to growing demand, A2H helped the Memphis Health Center renovate its existing space in South Memphis and expand the facility by an additional 6,800 square feet. 

The clinic now accommodates additional space for a new waiting area, a larger pharmacy, and extra exam rooms and offices for more patients to be treated throughout the day. Services and administrative offices were relocated from the site’s portable trailers to the new addition. 

Prior to this project, the Memphis Health Center served approximately 15,000 patients each year. With the additional exam rooms and services, the new 31,000-square-foot clinic can now serve about 11,500 more patients annually.
