Project Description
The Ambulatory Clinic/Physician Practice Project includes the development of 13,000 - 19,000 GSF of shared clinical space on the second and third floor of the Adaptive Reuse Phase III project. The design includes exam rooms, minor procedure rooms, public spaces, administrative spaces, as well as a possible pharmacy. A program and conceptual space layout has been prepared by a medical space planner and will be the starting point of schematic design services.

The architect will be expected to provide preliminary design and engineering services including but not limited to MEP disciplines, life safety, code analysis, structural, acoustical, and interior design services sufficient to adequately develop preliminary schematic design plans, preliminary outline specifications, an accurate budget and schedule.

The architect and engineer will have to coordinate and integrate their work into an existing building architecture and infrastructure and hook up to existing facilities. Should existing facilities prove to be inadequate, the architect and engineer shall recommend upgrades and replacements of existing systems.

The initial commission will be limited to the preparation of the feasibility study. Upon approval of the Project by the Board of Trustees, the retained architect would be considered for completion of the balance of the project.
