Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center - MOB, Knoxville, TN - LDS is providing planning and design for the site of a new Medical Office Building at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center in the heart of the Historic Fort Sanders Community in Knoxville. This project initially generated considerable resistance from the neighborhood due to the required closure of a block of 19th Street. LDS coordinated meetings with the hospital, the neighborhood, the business community, city council members, planning commissioners and city staff over a 5 month period  that ultimately resulted in the City Council closure of the street which allowed the project to move on to design. In the design phase LDS coordinated all the utility relocations and performed the civil site design. Client - Covenant Health / Earl Swensen Associates.
