The North Building renovation will realize elements of Ponti’s original design concept, expand gallery spaces to better engage audiences with the museum’s growing collection and increase the DAM’s capacity to serve school and youth groups through its renowned educational program. The design will streamline visitor access and serve as a beacon for the surrounding neighborhood.
A new ambulatory surgery center is part of the implementation of the Master Plan developed for Parkview Medical Center by TreanorHL. Design services include programming, design, construction documentation, and construction administration services to demolish the existing Murley Building and construct a new Freestanding Surgery Center consisting of four Operating Rooms, four Endoscopy Procedure Rooms and required supporting public space, procedure areas, pre-operative recovery, administrative areas and MEP equipment rooms.
Spanning 54,000 square feet, the goal of the improvements is to increase the overall capacity and elevate the design of the existing campus.
Construction is slated to be completed in phases: phase two is slated to be completed in Q1 2019; phase three in Q1 2020; and phase four in Q1 2021.
Phase two involves designing the new short-term rehab and long-term skilled care facility, with the addition of two wings of 14 beds each. There will also be a small amenity node with a living room, a dining room, a country serving kitchen, as well as a physical therapy gym.
Phases three includes more community-based improvements, with the addition of a commercial kitchen, receiving areas and staff areas for behind the scenes maintenance and management.
Phase four will add 28 skilled memory care units (14 on either side of the building) each with access to a shared living space. Here, residents with higher level of acuity will have the opportunity to enjoy a courtyard wandering garden and spa, with a more robust nursing component. The designs have also eliminated dead-end corridors, and increased security elements throughout.
