Kaiser Permanente – California and Georgia

Founded in 1945, Kaiser Permanente (Kaiser) is one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit healthcare companies. Kaiser serves more than 8.7 million members in Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Mid-Atlantic States, Northern California, Northwest, Ohio, and Southern California.

Luster began providing construction management services to Kaiser in 1995. After only providing CM services to Kaiser in northern California for many years, Luster was awarded a Master Service Agreement by Kaiser in 2009. Under this agreement, Luster provides Construction and Project Management services in northern and southern California, as well as, Georgia.

Recently, Luster reviewed and assessed a Contractor’s Site Specific Quality Plan for Phase II of the Kaiser Oakland Medical Center Replacement (KOMCR) project. This project will result in an additional 1.76 million square feet of medical space at a Kaiser medical facility in Oakland. This is a multi-year construction project on a 19-acre site.

In addition, Luster completed an Operational Assessment of the Project Controls Group within the Cost Engineering Division. This benchmarking study compared the Project Controls Group’s cost estimating process to industry best practices.

Luster is also providing project and construction management services to Kaiser Georgia for the $50 million Towne Park Comprehensive Care Center Construction Project. This project is being executed under a separate contract awarded to Luster in 2010.

Luster is committed to helping Kaiser expand its healthcare footprint across the country. We are helping Kaiser control and monitor construction costs through effective program management.
