Through an IDIQ contract with VISN 21, Apogee was tasked with development of construction documents for the construction of modular buildings to be placed on the adjacent land to the Mather facility that was recently procured. The new single-story medical specialty clinic includes cardiology, nephrology, and pulmonary. Apogee engaged the project stakeholders in a design charrette to kick-off the project, developing two options for the VA to consider and reaching a consensus on the best path forward.
The exterior design simplifies construction with a rigid rectangle volume. Light is brought into the building through glazing highlights in the waiting area, while strip windows bring light into the perimeter rooms. All materials for the exterior can be sourced regionally, making them both contextual and environmentally sensitive.
To provide continuity with the existing campus, our interiors department designed finishes and color schemes to include materials used in the main hospital building.
Apogee’s plumbing engineers designed sanitary waste and vent piping, domestic hot and cold-water piping, new plumbing fixtures, medical gas system and piping, and storm water piping. Mechanical design included HVAC equipment for five DX roof top units with gas heating. Our electrical engineers designed for the building to tie into utility services for the site. Designed LED lighting fixtures.
