The Des Moines office is proud to announce the completion of the UnityPoint Health Pathology Lab. The Ankeny facility located off campus from its prior home at Iowa Methodist Hospital is approximately 63,893 square feet. Construction began in October 2018 and concluded in May 2019. The scope of work for this project consisted of expanding the electrical distribution, LED lighting, low voltage lighting controls, voice/data system, and a complete fire alarm system.

This design-build facility houses open office space plus dedicated lab space including specific areas for microbiology, toxicology, and pathology. Additional aspects of this project included power for automated lab equipment, sealed fixtures, a room dedicated to the 150KVA UPS, and a 1,000KW generator. The CECM management team consisted of Travis Powell as Project Manager, Clint Bailey as Low Voltage Project Manager, and Dianna Merritt as Project Estimator/Coordinator. Trevor Schmidt was the foreman for the project. Trevor’s experience and supreme attention to detail was an asset during this project. Commonwealth was thrilled to work with Edge Commercial, general contractor, on the construction of the UnityPoint Pathology Lab. Commonwealth and Edge have forged a great relationship throughout numerous UnityPoint Health projects.

The Des Moines office is happy to have completed this design-build project for UnityPoint Health and continue our great relationship with Edge Commercial..
