Some of our intern architects went on a site visit, led by James Evrard, RA, NCARB, to learn the progress of our Pinnacle V project in Leawood, Kansas. The steel is fully erect, masonry has begun and is about 40% complete. Windows and glazing, frames and glass are currently going in. The roof work is still in progress and the stairs have been put in place. The building will be enclosed mid-May, tenant improvements will start in June, and the project is estimated to be completed by September. Interns will receive Intern Development Program (IDP) hours through the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) for Construction Phase: Observation.
The new headquarters at College and Nall in Overland Park, Kansas is now LEED Certified. The building was designed to meet the sustainable requirements through the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). Its features include erosion and sedimentation control, drip irrigation, energy management systems, on-site shower facilities, and preferred parking for low-emitting and fuel-efficient vehicles.
The JE Dunn + Hoefer Wysocki Architecture Design-Build Team has been released to start design on the new $43 million, 112,000 SF two-story replacement medical and dental clinic for the 27th Special Operations Medical Group (27 SOMDG) located at Cannon AFB, New Mexico. The building itself will both reflect the culture of the medical facility and promote that culture within the medical staff and patients. The design and construction of the facility will include evidence-based principles and advanced technologies that create a healing environment, provides patient/family-centered care, and facilitate communication between caregivers, patients, and family.
The design provides for a clinical wing and an ancillary support wing that are connected by a communicating space that serves as the primary wayfinding element for patients. Administrative and support areas are organized to be separate from the patient areas, in effect, “off-stage” from patient view.
The clinic wing shall include Family Health, Immunizations, Pediatrics, Physical Therapy, and TOPA grouped together on the main floor. On the upper floor of the clinic wing, the Dental Clinic, Optometry, Public Health, and Flight Medicine are arranged with vertical circulation as needed to the floors below.
The ancillary/support wing shall include the Clinical Lab, Radiology, Pharmacy and Common Areas on the First Floor with BEE, Logistics, and mechanical spaces located “off-stage”. The Command/Admin, Information Management, Education and Training, and Mental Health / Social work services are located on the upper floor.
The Kansas State University Foundation will begin development in October 2014 of Phase I of a master plan that includes a 59,000-square-foot office building. Originally started in 2007, the completed project cost is estimated to be $11.5 million, which will be financed through a commercial loan. Future phases will feature three additional buildings that will include corporate offices and lab space. Hoefer Wysocki is very excited to be on this design-build team with GE Johnson Construction and Hutton Construction. Read the full article here.
Hoefer Wysocki Architecture was recently awarded the Marengo Memorial Hospital Master Plan project located in Marengo, Iowa. Work has started as Partner, Jim Stearman, participated in a three-day charrette to evaluate their existing campus’ needs. More space in each department, setting them up for growth within their outpatient area and increasing their service needs have been determined as high priorities. Improving their inpatient services has been discussed as well, with the potential of offering women and birthing services again. Our team consists of Mitchell Planning Associates, Henderson Engineers and Bob D. Campbell.
Design and construction of the Community Hospital District No. 1 project of Pottawatomie, Jackson and Nemaha Counties located in Onaga, Kansas is well underway. The $19 million, 37,700-square foot expansion and 28,500-square foot renovation of the 1971 building will feature more modern amenities including private rooms and an additional operating room. The 1957 building, consisting of 21,200 square feet, will be demolished. We are teaming with Murray Company on this design-build project.
