Significance to the region: The new Bellin Health clinic is part of the Green Bay Packers’ 34-acre, $130 million Titletown District development. The district, which lies just west of Lambeau Field, will also include a 144-room Lodge Kohler hotel and Hinterland Restaurant and Brewery. The clinic, for its part, will house MRI, X-ray, fluoroscopy and ultrasound equipment. It will also include a VIP section that allows well-known patients’ privacy while they receive treatment. The clinic will be a primary-care location for Packers players, and will also be open to the public.
Project challenges: Crews are working on an aggressive project schedule and having to deal with a site that has unsuitable soils and a high water table. Auger-cast piles are being used to support the clinic’s foundation due to soil that isn’t capable of supporting the building loads.
