The management of PDA pursues the goal of helping our member physicians make more money with no added hassle or time requirement. Our contacts throughout the DFW Metroplex expose us to a wide variety of services which can be utilized by our physicians. We have the opportunity to interface with these various service providers, to learn about their businesses, and to know the owners on a personal as well as professional level. Whenever we have the appropriate knowledge and opportunity, we will share our information as a service to the PDA membership.
The first service provider we would like to recognize is Callaway Architecture (http://www.CallawayArchitecture.com). We have been impressed by their rapid growth in the DFW healthcare space and their expertise in independent practitioner projects. This is an outstanding, high-integrity firm which provides a broad range of integrated services to physicians who are considering the construction of a medical office building. As their website explains, a unique ability of Callaway is securing entitlements for zoning, platting, site plan approval, design criteria and other governmental approvals required for a site. Master planning an individual site or large scale development goes hand in hand with both entitlements and architectural design. Callaway coordinates the entire process as a “single point of contact” approach to retain the required consulting team under one umbrella agreement. Callawayalso provides interior design services to meet all visual and functional needs.
A subsequent blog will work through the business strategy of ‘Build versus Rent”. This is a good read.
