The joint-venture team of Sundt/DPR broke ground in 2016 to construct the $275 million Banner-University Medical Center Tucson. The project included a nine-story, 670,000-square-foot tower, which replaced a 40-year-old portion of the hospital and additional renovation work.
The I-10 Ina Road project included reconstructing the interchange at Ina Road as a precast concrete bridge overpass to I-10.
It also included several street improvements, channel construction, drainage, retaining walls, signals, lighting, and utility relocation. Of the various improvements made, the most notable is the bridge to take traffic over the Union Pacific Railroad and break up delays on a heavily used four-lane road.
