Centralizing Community Care With Medical Office Building Complex

Atrium Health wanted a medical office complex for the Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute alongside a multi-disciplinary community care center to concentrate specialty services in one location. The new facility includes a diagnostics center so patients and families can access education and medical care under one roof.

The complex includes a pair of five-story medical office buildings over a two-level, below-grade parking garage. The foundation consists of spread footings supported on compressed aggregate piers. The superstructure is reinforced concrete framing at the parking garage levels and structural steel framing at the medical office building levels.

Our team worked closely with the design/build team to accurately model the building structure utilizing Revit, coordinating all building systems in a 3D environment. Imaging equipment was planned for multiple office suites, necessitating detailed vibrational analysis of the steel-framed floors. In addition, we provided precise detailing and analysis to support the large precast panels on the building exterior.

The easily accessible location and latest equipment and technology further extend Atrium Health’s mission of bringing health, hope, and healing to everyone in the community.
