A nonprofit health care clinic has completed a local $2-million renovation project it started roughly 18 months ago.

Planned Parenthood of West and Northern Michigan celebrated last month the makeover of its Irwin/Martin Health Center in Grand Rapids, at 425 Cherry St. SE.

The building is a health center and the organization’s headquarters.

Planned Parenthood of West and Northern Michigan is a provider of sexual health, education and advocacy services.

“This major overhaul of our headquarters and health center demonstrates Planned Parenthood’s commitment to serving our community for many years to come,” said Kathy Humphrey, president and CEO, Planned Parenthood of West and Northern Michigan.


Grand Rapids-based Craig Architects served as the project’s architect.

Bazzani Associates in Grand Rapids served as the general contractor for the project.


The nonprofit said the project was a “top to bottom, inside and out LEED-certified overhaul.”

The renovation included a new design to the building’s front, a new courtyard and a relocation of the main entrance, as well as a new lobby.

The top-floor administrative offices have been relocated and remodeled.

A relocated education center puts all public areas on the main floor and includes a new, larger meeting room for educational programs and special events.

The work also included updates to the building’s electric, plumbing, heating and cooling systems, as well as new energy-efficient windows, skylights, drywall, flooring, fixtures, paint and countertops.
