About Porcupine Dialysis

Porcupine, South Dakota is located nearly 70 miles from any major city.  The project site is on the Pine Ridge Oglala Sioux reservation in the Badlands area of South Dakota.

Their Need

When the dialysis facility in nearby Porcupine, SD was closed due to structural issues, the Oglala Sioux were left lacking renal treatment options.  Both the remote location and the accelerated timeline pointed to modular construction as the optimal solution.

Our Solution

MedCon-USA was responsible for all project engineering.  Working in close collaboration with the Tribal Employment Rights Office (TERO), certified Native American contractors from the reservation were sub-contracted for the sitework on the project.

Due to the accelerated schedule, all the main components of the R.O. water system were installed at Whitley's off-site construction facility.  Comprehensive construction management approaches were used in developing scopes of work and task sequences to reduce cost to the client and overall project timelines.

The building featured specialty systems such as a Geothermal HVAC with (12) 350' deep wells for the ground loop.  An emergency generator can power the entire building in the case of power loss.  The exterior finishes of the building were selected to withstand frequent sustained winds exceeding 90 MPH.
