Client: SurgCenter Development
Location: Point of Rocks, MD
Size: 8,000 sf
Date: 2015

Background: Over 50 ASC’s Since 2005

SurgCenter Development was looking for a reliable design-assist company to partner with as they rapidly developed their business. As their preferred partner, CMSI has successfully completed over 50 ambulatory surgical centers for SurgCenter Development throughout the mid-Atlantic since 2005.

Objectives: Freestanding Ambulatory Surgical Center

SurgCenter Development sought to construct a freestanding ambulatory surgical center on an undeveloped piece of land that was strategically located near the MD-VA line, with easy access from Leesburg, VA. CMSI was contracted to provide the following services for this ground-up construction project: construction administration / construction management, sitework, utilities, shell building landscaping, interior tenant improvements.

Approach: Constructing Through Geotechnical Challenges

As we implemented the sitework for this project, we discovered that the soil unexpectedly failed to reach the necessary level for compaction. Further geotechnical studies revealed that the property may have been used as a borrow site for the development of the adjacent neighborhood. We coordinated the removal and export of unsuitable soils and the import and compaction of suitable materials to meet the structural requirements for the property improvements.

Results: Serving the Baltimore Orioles

Our team’s expertise provided the level of services needed to overcome sitework and utility challenges and meet the client’s timeline. We also provided permit expediting services to avoid delays. Out of consideration for the nearby residents, we coordinated our work with the neighborhood’s homeowner’s association. With the successful completion of this project, the medical professionals who serve the Baltimore Orioles and the Frederick Keys now have an ambulatory surgical center that is conveniently located to both athletic teams and the surrounding communities.


“You really made it easy to work through our project. Your entire team was amazing, accommodating, and very patient with all of us. In our excitement, we loved coming to see the changes each day, and everyone on the CMSI team was completely kind and welcomed us to see the progress. I personally appreciated your willingness to include me in the project planning and process along the way. You listened to my ideas and heard my concerns, and amended accordingly. I’m happy to tell any potential customers that you are awesome.”
