Saddle Creek Development project moves foward

Following a competitive bidding process, UNMC has selected T&G Investments as the team to lead the design and construction of a new administrative building development for UNMC. The new development will be a key component of the Saddle Creek Development and will be constructed at the southwest corner of Saddle Creek Road and Farnam Streets.

The 350,000-square-foot administrative building will house critical functions for UNMC, such as providing workspace and collaboration for clinical faculty as well as serve as the administrative headquarters for many university and health care system functions. The project includes other mixed-use spaces and multi-modal connectivity that will benefit UNMC’s neighbors and the City of Omaha.

Redevelopment of the Saddle Creek Site, formerly home to Omaha Steel Castings, is an important step as UNMC continues to grow as a health care leader nationally and internationally.

“This project is a keystone development connecting the main body of campus to the new Saddle Creek Site and will replace an end-of-life facility for UNMC,” said Brian Spencer, director of facilities and clinical space planning at UNMC and Nebraska Medicine. “It will remove space pressure from the critical areas in the clinical and teaching core of campus while still allowing easy access to campus while helping further our sustainability goals.”

T&G Investments has a track record of completing similar type projects in the Omaha market, including Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska’s headquarters, Think Whole Person Healthcare and the Carson Group headquarters.

“T&G Investments is very excited to collaborate with UNMC on this important project as one of the first elements of their Saddle Creek Site,” said Chad Beeson, president of Tetrad Property Group. “Delivering a world-class facility that represents UNMC and the community while providing amenities for future generations is a scenario we are excited to invest in.”

The developers have selected Tetrad Property Group to serve as their owner’s representative for the project. Leo A Daly is the design lead and McCarthy Building Companies is the general contractor. They also will work with the BranchPattern to maximize the potential of the building to meet and exceed UNMC’s sustainability goals.
