DaVita Dialysis Clinics
Jens Construction has been working in the kidney care industry since the late 1990’s. For the past ten years, Jens Construction has constructed or renovated more than 17 kidney dialysis clinics throughout southeast Wisconsin for DaVita Inc. Clinics contain between 10 and 24 dialysis stations, nurse stations, medicine prep areas, offices, restrooms, waiting room, equipment maintenance room, large water treatment room, staff lounge, conference room, and all ancillary rooms and space required for the clinic.
Jens Construction provided project management, full-time on-site supervision, and coordination of all trades, owner’s vendors, and DaVita setup crews. In addition, Jens Construction self-performed concrete, general laborer work, metal studs and drywall, casework/millwork installation, door frames and door installation, and wall protection installation.
My Choice Family Care
Jens Construction served as the General Contractor for the renovation of 18,900 s.f. of office space for My Choice Family Care. Work included demolition of the existing office space and construction of the new space. New work included construction of new offices, updating and enlarging a breakroom, new finishes throughout, conversion of a garage into a new training room, and updates to the HVAC system. My Choice had a firm date for which they were required to vacate their previous space. As such, all demolition work, new construction and the move-in of the owner’s furniture and equipment, commissioning, and punchlist had to be (and was) completed within a three (3) month timeframe.
Jens Construction worked closely with the owner, CBRE, the architect, the furniture vendor, and the building’s management firm (Irgens). Jens provided constant updates on the schedule, material lead times/delivery, and cost. Jens Construction assisted in the expediting of the Architect’s Plan review and issuance of the Building Permit. In addition, working with the owner’s furniture vendor and IT group, we made sure these activities were coordinated with the overall construction as to not delay our construction activities nor their work.
Group Health Cooperative - Capitol Clinic
This facility consists of 36,000 square feet of space, which includes 26 exam rooms, a treatment room, mental health area, chiropractic office, urgent care, optometry, and physical therapy area. Support spaces for a pharmacy, laboratory, and radiology were also included for in-hour convenience to both patients and staff. Featuring a brick and glass structure with a standing seam metal roof, the clinic is located near the State Capitol in Madison's historic railroad corridor. The unique architectural design and construction earned the facility the Capitol Community Citizens Orchid Award for 1995.

G.I. Specialists, LLC teamed up with Jens to construct a 7,435-square-foot full Endoscopy Surgery Center which included six pre-op beds, 11 recovery beds, 5 procedure rooms and all necessary supplementary areas. With the surgery center located on the third floor, the work included a rooftop mounted emergency generator and a basement level vacuum pump.
Surgi-Center of Greater Milwaukee - Surgery Center
This facility was originally built by Jens Construction Corp. as a 12,500-square-foot stand-alone outpatient surgery center which included four operating rooms with necessary support services (pre-op and recovery areas, decontamination, sterile areas, office, etc.). Five years later, Jens constructed a 12,000-square-foot expansion of this facility including two new operating rooms, and renovated major areas of the existing facility to handle increased patient load while surgical operations continued uninterrupted.
Kidney Institute of Wisconsin - Humboldt Ridge Clinic
Under a Design/Build contract Jens designed and constructed a new 6,100-square-foot, 24-station stand-alone Kidney Dialysis Clinic complete with all necessary support services including Lab and Water Treatment System. Jens also assisted Kidney Institute with its site selection analysis. Through early cost analysis it was determined that by constructing this facility in an existing vacated shell building, the timeline for occupancy could be met and was an economical solution for its building requirements. With minor changes to the building structure to accommodate this type of use and health code requirements, this project was completed in four months.
Marquette University - North and South Dentail Clinics
The construction of these clinics consisted of the complete renovation of existing medical office suites into a nine and ten chair dental and office facility.

This new facility, Group Health Cooperatives first in Madison, consists of 36,000 square feet of space, which includes 26 exam rooms, a treatment room, mental health area, chiropractic office, and a health education center.

Family Heath Plan - Medical Clinics
Seven health clinic construction projects, each between 25,000 and 35,000 square feet have been completed for a single client over the past 20 years. All clinics included primary care, radiology, treatment and lab functions. Various specialty suites constructed at individual sites included nuclear medicine, cardiac rehabilitation, obstetrics, optical, mental health, oncology, and mammography.

Community Care Organization - Waukesha Day Center
Community Care Organization of Waukesha selected Jens Construction to completely renovate an existing building and site for its 22,000-square-foot Day Care Center for elderly and adults with disabilities. The project required Jens to take an existing warehouse building site and convert it to a facility capable to accommodate the special needs of a day care center.
Community Care Organization - Vliet Street Day Center
Originally, the building that this 90,000-square-foot renovation project occupies, was a manufacturing plant. It was constructed at various times over the course of 80 years with varying construction types, structure heights, and mechanical systems. As a result, it offered many challenges during the renovation. Jens constructed a new small building addition and covered patient drop-off area and renovated the entire facility. Internally, the work consisted of constructing health clinic facility, elderly day center, re-habilitation area, dementia unit, general offices and full scale on-site commercial kitchen. Jens also constructed the corporate Data Center for Community Care within this building.
