Clinic Conversion Overcomes COVID Delays in Stride

A former bank suite was recently converted into a fertility clinic for Pearl Mini-IVF, which is now open at 4510 Executive Dr. in San Diego. The $2 million conversion of the 4,700-square-foot suite includes 1,000 square feet of lab space and a procedure room for in-vitro fertilization services. The project’s general contractor was Pacific Building Group.

“We take pride in supporting healthcare professionals and specialty practice groups such as Pearl Mini-IVF by providing offices that are aesthetically pleasing and meet rigorous industry standards,” said Jim Roherty, president of Pacific Building Group. “While the result for Pearl Mini-IVF is a state-of-the-art clinic that does just that, the construction process did come with a few challenges such as working in an occupied building, coordinating the building’s complex mechanical, electrical and plumbing infrastructure, and overcoming material and permit delays due to COVID-19.”

Pacific Building Group’s project team included Andre Childers, John Zagorski, Tim Book, Randy Berger, Bryan Scott, Michael Giannini and Cindy Jones. The architect was Ware Malcomb and the construction manager was David Lawson.
