Steel Frame Begins to Rise as Carilion Clinic Outpatient Facility Construction Reaches New Phase





Construction workers, aided by a large crane, began assembling the steel frame of the Carilion Clinic outpatient facility on the corner of Reserve Avenue and Jefferson Street this morning.



After months of site preparation and foundation construction, mostly invisible behind a blue barrier, progress on the 200,000 square-foot, $70 million outpatient facility.

The facility will be four stories high, on top of ground-floor parking. Here are architects renderings of the completed facility - viewed from the intersection of Jefferson and Reserve on the left, and from the center of the complex on the right. Click on the image for a larger view.
