The Kaiser Permanente Clairemont Mesa Medical Offices is a new four-story, 90,000-sq.-ft. center that replaces the aging facility scheduled to be demolished on the same lot. The low-rise wing houses a large pharmacy, lab, Vision Essentials retail store and optometry offices, two radiation suites, Café, and a conference center. The attached four-story tower features 101 exam rooms and 72 provider offices. The medical offices also offers wellness-oriented features like an indoor public square with a view garden, an outdoor amphitheater, a Thrive Path with exercise stations, and landscaped open space.

DPR Construction self-performed the concrete, acoustic ceiling tile installation, drywall, doors, specialties and equipment installation. The main lobby features a dramatic wood ceiling with elliptical curves, a vertical return along two edges and an outdoor soffit at the front entrance. Nearly all the exterior and interior walls were prefabricated offsite by Digital Building Components.

The facility is pursuing LEED-NC Gold certification.
