Hart Animal Hospital Completed

Posted by: Cox Medendorp Olson Architects | Sep, 23rd

Project: Hart Animal Hospital

Dr. Danial Hart wished to construct a new facility for himself and up to two additional doctors to serve the small animal veterinary needs of the Middleville area.  The resulting 5,500 square foot building houses all of the functions required for this full service practice; including boarding and surgical kennels, exam rooms, pharmacy, and treatment areas as well as radiology, a surgical suite, and accommodations for cats. Care was taken to keep this an economical project to construct while not compromsing performance, aesthetics, or durability.  Notable features include using stained concrete as the floor finish for a large portion of the building, use of masonry walls and flushable trench drains in the kennels, and creating a 'residential' presence from the road to blend with the character of the existing transitional neighborhood. The roof structure was designed to allow for a raised ceiling area in the public lobby and fenestration was laid out to provide abundant daylighting opportunities, including within the animal boarding areas.  Medical gas was provided for the Surgery and a multiple unit HVAC system was used to limit the spread of airborne odors and disease.

Grand Health Partners Completed

Posted by: Cox Medendorp Olson Architects | Sep, 23rd

Project: Grand Health Partners

With the need to expand its services, this growing bariatric practice called on CMO to help them design a new 14,275 square foot facility within the new Heritage Pointe office building. Located on the main level of the building it will take advantage of two exterior entrances as well as access to the main lobby of the building.  CMO worked closely with the staff to develop a patient-centered floor plan that meets the specific needs of the bariatric patient, including shorter distances to exam rooms from the waiting area, private scale areas, and appropriately sized architectural elements such as doors, corridors, and casework. Interior colors and materials were selected by the client.  The completed project includes twelve (12) exam rooms in pod arrangement with nurse station; seventeen (17) private offices for physicians, managers, dieticians, and behaviorists; staff open office and support areas; staff lunch room; large waiting room, 560 square foot retail store; 2200 square foot sub dividable large group meeting room; physical therapy area with offices.  Unique to this practice is the ability to close off the "medical" portion of this office, while still allowing access to the "educational" portion for after hour seminars, meetings, and support groups.
