Project Summary

Vision:
Bring together the most advanced healing technology in community healthcare along with state-of-the-art medical and surgical products, in order to provide excellent clinical outcomes through an amazing array of support services, resources, and nurse practitioners that few non-acute clinics across the country offer.

Design:
Extensive use of open space combined with the elements of environment friendly Bio Based floor covering materials like Armstrong‚Äôs Striations (new) to achieve the design focus of ‚ÄúLive Healthy‚ÄĚ; to promote healing through nurturing spaces; and to empower patients through information and education.

Construction:
Convert a Borders book store space in a busy shopping center into the most advanced clinic in the county. Dal-Tile combined with Schluter trim on both the top and bottom scores created an incredible bold and linear design element while achieving the statutory sanitary cleanliness codes. The design build of the facility also included an Ardex moisture mitigation system to allow for long term uninterrupted care.

Install:
Universal Metro procured and installed all floor covering over a customized Ardex Moisture Control System, inclusive of Ardex MC Rapid, Ardifix, K-15 Self Leveler, and GS-4 Self-Leveling Repair Underlayment for wood subfloors.  Flooring finishes included bio-based tile, resilient, porcelain tile, stone, carpet, and base.

 

 

Environmental Achievment Strategy

Extensive use of open space combined with the elements of environment friendly Bio Based floor covering materials like Armstrong‚Äôs Striations (new) achieved the design focus of ‚ÄúLive Healthy‚ÄĚ; to promote healing through nurturing spaces. Using the product in over 13,000 sf (3/4) of the project the Bio Based tile allowed for the project to incorporate sustainable design into the construction. Migrations with BioStride contains rapidly renewable resources, uses 10% recycled content and meets the standards of California Section 01350 for low VOC emissions.
