Preventive Medicine Clinic- Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA
The new 13,576 square foot clinic has been located on the site to allow access from both the on-street parking located on 5th Street and the on-site car park located north of the building. A wide promenade guides visitors to a central plaza where the building can be accessed from a 2-sided vestibule. This solution allows the building to draw in visitors from both directions, while allowing an unimpeded future growth across the plaza. As patients and guests enter the building through the glass storefront entries on either side of the vestibule, they are greeted by a warm and welcoming collocated waiting space filled with natural light from the tall windows opening out of the lobby. The centralized reception desk is prominently located on the side of the lobby. From this reception point, patients and visitors can check in prior to proceeding into the clinical treatment zone.
In keeping with the surrounding architecture, a single-story solution was created to assist in promoting the greater campus environment. The exterior facade of the clinic is developed utilizing a variety of materials including a base course of natural grey CMU, wire cut brick veneer, and synthetic stucco finish. These changes in material provide variety and interest to the building elevation and were selected to coordinate with the Madigan Area Master Plan.
The clinic utilizes solar tubes to light interior spaces to meet the technical daylighting needs. This project earned a USGBC LEED Gold Certification.
