Baptist North/YMCA Health Wellness Center Now Open!

The new Baptist North three-story “medical wellness center” at Dunn Avenue and Interstate 295 is now open! The center features a new YMCA, Y healthy Living Center, and physician offices. Located on 17.5 acres of the 40-acre Baptist North campus, the center is set to meet the increasing demand for residents of the Northside, which have been historically underserved as it relates to these types of facilities. R-A-M was pleased to be a part of the great team that brought this facility from concept to reality. In general, R-A-M provided professional design services under the following broad categories: Civil Design (paving, drainage, and grading), Landscape Architectural Design/Tree Mitigation, Irrigation, Potable Water, Sanitary Sewer, Site Electrical, Site Lighting, FDOT Traffic Update, and arguably most importantly, the permitting related to the impacts of the site development including St. Johns Water Management District (SJRWMD), City of Jacksonville, FDOT, JEA, and the Department of Environmental Protection. Notably, R-A-M was able to complete our work on this project ahead of schedule.

Elements of R-A-M’s design services included: 

  • Site Coordinates/Geometry
  • Site Grading and Drainage
  • Erosion/Sediment Control 
  • Parking Requirements, Signage, Pavement Grading, and Markings
  • Storm water, Wetland mitigation, and Drainage permitting
  • Site lighting analysis & design
