Building Information

U.S. Green Building Council member emblemThis project added approximately 20,000 square feet of new space and demolished the portion of the building that was built in 1954. Nearly 14,500 square feet of the building constructed in 1968 was fully renovated. The addition and renovations created space for acute care services that allowed more patients to be seen daily and decreased wait times. Patient wait times for visits that require laboratory testing have decreased by 30-50 minutes on average since building renovations were finished.

The new building offers patients primary care and women’s health services in addition to wellness-care services such as massage, acupuncture and chiropractic. Public spaces at the facility include semi-private indoor and outdoor waiting areas, double as quiet student study places.

The addition and renovation followed highly sustainable practices. Construction waste was diverted from landfills during the project and reused whenever possible. Concrete from the old courtyard was sawn into blocks and repurposed into the landscaping, and bricks and recyclable materials from the building demolition were salvaged and used in other areas. The U.S. Green Building Council certified the project as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum, the council’s highest designation. Read more at ASU News.
