The HFS design team provided A-E services to renovate the fourth floor of the Kerrville VA hospital, which was built in 1947. This vertical medical facility design project was comprised of upgrades to infrastructure systems while also improving space utilization for specialty clinics, such as the GI, ortho, respiratory, and oncology health clinics, as well as their administrative offices.
The goal of the HFS Team was to improve patient care while improving both staff and patient experiences, efficiently and effectively. We developed a program for design and conceptual designs for this renovation project after several site visits, researching the building plan archives, and analyzing existing conditions and space utilization. Once the conceptual design was approved, the team completed construction plans and specifications that included demolition, interior design, mechanical, electrical, low voltage, hazardous material abatement, and life safety systems that are consistent with a mission-critical facility.
The fourth floor of the Kerrville VA hospital is somewhat unique in that the clinical staff is not on-site full time. For this reason, much of the clinical space has been developed as a hybrid office/treatment space.
