Union Village Retains Several Local Consulting Firms,
Hammes Company and HKS Architects
Union Village has retained several local design and consulting firms, preeminent healthcare consulting firm Hammes Company and leading architectural design firm HKS Architects to assist in the project’s rapid growth and development.
Hammes Company, the nation’s largest healthcare facility development firm, with a local office in Henderson, will serve as the overall project manager for Union Village, including site development, hospital program management, and medical office building development.
“With Union Village, we have a rare opportunity to participate in a groundbreaking concept that integrates comprehensive health and wellness capabilities with retail, entertainment and cultural amenities,” remarked Hammes Company Regional Manager Bill Foulkes.
HKS Architects will serve as Union Village’s master plan architect, and architect for the acute care hospitals. Operating out of their Las Vegas office, HKS Architects’ role includes addressing specific design parameters for various components of the project, such as building use and density, public amenities, pedestrian and bicycle trails, energy and waste strategies, on and off site utilities, streets and parking and landscape design.
Several other local design and consulting firms have been retained to assist Hammes Company and HKS Architects in their efforts. The Henderson office of civil engineering consulting company Cardno/WRG has been brought on to review the existing site, prepare a survey, and develop civil engineering and utility reports for the planned development.
The Las Vegas branch of the nationally recognized geotechnical firm Terracon has been retained to complete the environmental site assessment.
Las Vegas consulting firm Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc will conduct both the traffic and parking studies for the proposed development. This includes reviewing Union Village’s parking needs and master plan for traffic improvements between the project site and the City of Henderson.
“Kimley-Horn’s Las Vegas staff is both excited to work with such a world-class team on this project, and also to see the use of local firms,” said Ana Mendoza, business development manager with Kimley-Horn.
“Through the hiring of these local firms, the City of Henderson will already begin to see a positive economic impact and the creation of local jobs as a result of this project,” Foulkes adds. “And we have just begun.”
