In 2003, Hess Orthopedics made the move from Medical Avenue to its present location on Quarles Court. With the move came increased service opportunities, including a Physical Therapy department, two x-ray departments and increased exam room space to accommodate the needs of our patients.
Mather Architects was tasked with designing this new three story medical office. The new, three story office building contains examination rooms, an X-ray room, laboratory space, and record storage. Working with the owner, we developed the exterior elevations and refined the design for the lobby and reception area. A tasteful interior and exterior was developed that matched the vision and expectations of the doctors within a reasonable construction cost. The front round window and columns give the building a recognizable exterior identity. The lobby features a curved reception area, seating for 45 people, natural light, a children’s area, and a semi-private payment area addressing HIPA rules.
The design-build construction included brick veneer covering a structural steel frame. The interior was framed using metal studs and the roof system is wood truss covered with a combination of architectural asphalt shingle and membrane.
