AUSTIN, TEXAS (August 13,2018) Construction on the American Association of Nurse Practitioners’ (AANP) new national headquarters in Austin reached a milestone Monday when the 33,943-square-foot structure was topped out at a ceremony attended by AANP staff, White Construction Company (WCC) crew and Architect, Studio8 Architects.

“The building represents the continued commitment AANP has to the Austin community, home of the organization since its founding in 1985, and further solidifies Austin and Texas’ position on the map of America’s changing health care landscape,” said AANP President Joyce Knestrick, PhD, C-FNP, APRN, FAANP.

Ground broke in February of 2018 and is slated for completion in the spring of 2019.

WCC’s Senior Project Manager, Zane Cannaday, elaborated, “Our client, the folks at AANP, are a great group of people to work with. Certainly, among the best in my career.” He continued, “We also have an excellent working relationship with the Architect and Construction Manager. A big part of the project’s success on-site stems from the strong leadership of our Project Superintendent and exceptional subcontractors.” 

WCC Project Superintendent, Michael Swiney chimed in, “Having a strong, yet cohesive leadership team on-site is critical to a project’s success; as far as progress and safety are concerned. Collaboratively, we have been successful in meeting AANP’s needs and ensuring a positive progression of milestone events.”
