The Korte Company was awarded a two-story, 42,166 square foot addition and new entrance canopy to the existing Medical Office Building ‘B’, located on the Alton Memorial Hospital campus in Alton, Illinois. The addition will replace an existing parking lot.
The new addition will complement and maintain the existing design vocabulary of the buildings on the Alton campus. Building materials include tilt-up concrete panels with commentary brick insets, a metal-cladding main entry canopy, as well as windows and frames.
The first floor build-out includes suites for OBGYN, Pediatrics and blood draw. The second floor will be occupied by the Southern Illinois Healthcare Foundation.
The newly constructed tower feature will provide an architectural landmark that mimics Alton Memorial Hospital. The design format follows the existing window size and pattern.
Renovated sidewalks will connect to the existing hospital and allow seamless pedestrian flow between buildings while enjoying views of the lake.
