is currently constructing its 37th and newest facility, a 60,000-square-foot building on 5.5 acres of open land in Oak Park Heights, MN. In addition to an orthopedic clinic, the facility will offer physical therapy, hand therapy, advanced MRI and CT imaging scanners, and walk-in orthopedic urgent care. Sports performance amenities include 8,000 square feet of athletic turf and training space, incline ramp, batting cage, basketball court, and weight room.
Wells is proud to partner with TCO on another precast project, currently producing and erecting nearly 20,000 sq. ft. of precast concrete. Structural and architectural wall panels enclose the exterior façade of this new building along with solid structural wall panels. The architectural panels showcase a beautiful mix of thin brick, acid etch and formliner features.
Our insulated wall panels offer an energy-efficient façade that aids in controlling heating and cooling costs while the architectural precast concrete panels use colors, textures, reveals, finishes, formliners, or thin-brick insets to create any needed design style.
The use of precast for healthcare buildings creates a low-maintenance façade that will not be difficult to fit into maintenance budgets with minimized joints, compared with brick or block construction, require less maintenance throughout the building’s life.
Precast allows for expedited construction providing faster return on investment and alleviating site congestion from other trades with year-round, all-weather construction. Component casting begins when the shop drawings are complete, ensuring that erection begins as soon as the site is prepared.
TCO operates clinics, walk-in orthopedic urgent care locations, and numerous other therapy and specialty care settings across Minnesota and western Wisconsin.
