Project Details

This project included the construction of a 17,600 SF Patient Services and Administration building that consolidated six hospital ancillary sites into one building on the medical campus.  Site work on this included design and construction of a new 80-stall parking lot, two bio-retention basins, erosion and sedimentation control measures, landscaping, and ADA compliance walkways.

Project Uniqueness/Challenges:

  • Relocation of existing water and sewer mains around the proposed building addition.
  • Design of a “land bridge” over an existing bio-retention basin for pedestrian connection from the new parking lot to the hospital.
  • Designed multiple scenarios for relocation of existing and creation of new accessible parking stalls to meet the ADA 10% requirement for medical facilities. Subsequent design of ADA routes with ramps for some of the spaces.
  • Modification and overlay of existing porous asphalt parking lot; subsequent analysis of original stormwater design report to determine capacity of existing detention facilities.
  • The hospital was designed as a model of Low Impact Development (LID) with BMP’s such as meadow habitat, porous asphalt, and rain gardens. Keller Engineers worked with the hospital to continue LID practices, where practical, and replaced failing porous asphalt with conventional asphalt.  KEI also worked with the local Conservation District for replacement of these BMP’s.

Keller Engineers’ Structural Division was responsible for the design of all structural elements.  The building has a steel frame with conventional concrete foundations.

For over 20 years I have had the privilege of working with Keller Engineers and their staff of surveyors, and civil and structural engineers on over $150 million worth of work. During these project relationships and partnering opportunities, my architectural teams have received nothing but premium professional services and courtesy towards my own staff, clients and prospective clients with stellar attention given to building and site details, client responsiveness and peer respect. I look forward to many more teaming opportunities and urge any other architectural firms, municipalities or clients who have not worked with Keller Engineers to do so. You will be pleasantly surprised! Richard L. Karcher, AIA, NCARB
