Located within a rapidly growing demographic area, the Urgent Care Clinic is planned to provide the community with the first healthcare focal point, a vital anchor woven into the fabric of a new, well-planned community framework.
To effectively serve patient needs, the building has been flexibly designed to convert from a Primary Care function during the day to Urgent Care in the evening. Universal room design supports both Primary Care and Urgent Care capabilities. The building massing and design reflect the surrounding context of the planned community.
Sustainable, climate responsive passive environmental and thermal system design elements include new cool roof clay tile technology, recyclable cement plaster exterior skin over thick slow thermal transfer walls, deep low-e window fenestration to allow for natural sun shading, natural convective cooling through architectural tower elements, and reflective natural lighting transferred into the building interior to replace fluorescent lighting during daytime hours.
