Malcolm Grow Medical Clinic & Surgery Center and Dental Clinic

Project General Information

371,166 SF

Area

NAVFAC Washington

Client

Joint Base Andrews, MD

United States

A prominent healthcare campus serves as a warm welcome home to the United States for wounded soldiers returning home.

Description

Because Joint Base Andrews serves as the premier continental U.S. gateway for wounded soldiers returning home as well as providing logistical support for the president and high-ranking officials, the client requested a facility that communicates prominence and stature. RLF developed a complex phasing solution to address challenges related to the wedge-shaped site, antiterrorism/force protection (AT/FP) setbacks and the need to integrate existing buildings into the consolidated design. Drawing upon inspiration from the client and rethinking traditional design and use of materials, the RLF team devised a creative solution that incorporated installation standards with a circular-shaped grand entrance that connects the clinic to a new four-story parking structure and carries the design element into the interior spaces.

RLF provided master planning, programming and full architecture and engineering design services under a single contract for a phased bid package that includes the construction of a mission-critical, four-story medical clinic and surgery center; a two-story, freestanding dental clinic; modernization and renovations of two existing facilities; a new 13,224 SF central energy plant (CEP); associated site work, utilities and infrastructure; and demolition of existing facilities.

All work was completed on an active medical campus, with carefully planned programming, phasing and coordination implemented to avoid impacting existing operations. Efforts included coordination with environmental and regulatory agencies as well as approvals from the National Capital Planning Commission and the Maryland State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO). The project scope included integrated sustainable design for a target of LEED Silver certification, safety and infection control measures, antiterrorism/force protection (AT/FP), hazmat remediation and commissioning of the CEP.

Sustainability

Both healthcare facilities (Medical Clinic/Surgery Center and Dental Clinic) were designed to achieve LEED Silver certification
