Kaiser South Baltimore

Kaiser Permanente's 'one-stop shop' approach for MEP




Baltimore, Maryland




In 2013, Kaiser Permanente unveiled a new 130,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility in Halethorpe, Maryland, just south of Baltimore.

Southland Industries played a key role in the project, installing the HVAC, plumbing, medical gas, and building automation systems for the four-story space that enclosed a variety of medical offices, including surgical and radiology suites, and a detached parking garage.

Our Approach

To speed up the installation process, our team used BIM modeling, prefabrication techniques, and just-in-time deliveries. Specifically, the team spooled out the cast-iron pipe systems in a fabrication shop and used combination-rack piping systems that were prefabricated and delivered just-in-time.

The just-in-time approach significantly reduced installation time and material waste in the field. 


Our engineers provided innovative ideas throughout the BIM planning and construction process to ensure an on-time and efficient workflow. Additionally, the company's "one-stop shop" approach for MEP enabled Kaiser Permanente to rely on a single company to coordinate all the mechanical utilities, which gave them more time to focus on the opening of the new facility and welcoming the community through its doors.
