project description:

New tenant development of 3,840 square feet of existing space on the fifth floor of the Galter Medical Pavilion to accommodate a 12 station dialysis clinic, including treatment room, offices, staff, patient support areas and a home PD training room.

design solutions:

The use of color on discrete architectural elements reinforces the plan's imposed geometry and adds visual interest. Expansive east-facing windows and the use of indirect lighting help create a sense of openness and softened brightness throughout the clinic. Glass waste piping, to minimize under-floor piping maintenance, state of the art systems including RO water processing, bicarb and acidified central delivery and dialyzer reuse processing are provided.
