The city issued a permit March 3 for Auld & White Constructors LLC to build a support building for Mayo Clinic in Florida’s central utility plant at a project cost of $20 million.
It comes after a Feb. 1 permit for the $1 million foundation.
The two-story, 41,000-square-foot structure will be built on 3.18 acres at 14131 Kendall Hench Circle at the 4500 San Pablo Road campus, north of Butler Boulevard.
It is part of the $432 million expansion that Mayo Clinic in Florida announced a year ago.
Jacksonville-based Auld & White Constructors LLC also is the foundation contractor.
Prosser Inc. of Jacksonville is the civil engineer. Group 4 Design, also of Jacksonville, is the architect.
Plans refer to the central utility plant as Mayo CUP-C next to existing CUP-A and CUP-B.
Mayo Clinic said increasing patient demand for complex care is driving the expansion.
Mayo Clinic in Florida, which opened 37 years ago in South Jacksonville, also is adding a 210-acre North Campus to the San Pablo Road property.
That expands its 392-acre medical center property to 602 acres.
Mayo Clinic in Florida says that it has grown from a single five-story building to three main patient care buildings, a hospital, two research buildings and a collection of free-standing clinical care facilities, administrative buildings and support centers.
Mayo Clinic in Florida says it provides diagnosis, medical treatment, surgery and care for more than 168,000 patients annually in 40 specialty areas.
It says that since 2016, it has invested more than $1 billion in major construction projects, more than doubling its space by 2026 with new facilities for patient care, biomedical research, education and technology.
Mayo Clinic will add more than 600,000 square feet of space for medical destinations, patient care, biomedical research and technology by 2025.
