Located in a central medical district on 3.6 acres, the 36,200 square foot facility incorporates a traditional Spanish Colonial style that is the predominant architectural vernacular. The building is designed to promote energy efficiency that will provide for a sustainable, economical, and environmentally friendly facility throughout its life.
The outer envelope of the building has a skin of cement plaster using three earth tones, covering metal studs attached to a steel superstructure on a slab-on-grade. A tower element signifies the main entry along with a welcoming Spanish tile covered canopy. Natural lighting is provided all along the perimeter of the building, and skylights offer filtered lighting to the interior.
