BayCare Health System’s new corporate office campus will consist of two 150,000-square-foot, three-story office buildings master planned and built in two phases. The new campus consolidates all of BayCare’s corporate employees into a single location and serves as the main site for medical-personnel training.
GS&P’s design implements thoughtful solutions to improve building performance and user comfort while adhering to a tight budget. The building materials, which include panelized structural components and a concrete exterior façade, are part of an economical system that also supports long-term cost savings. The pragmatic application of vertical shading devices responds to varying solar intensities and exposures by shielding the sun where necessary. Horizontal screens both provide shade and reflect light into the open office areas. Such strategies result in a building that is over 60% more efficient that average building stock in the Tampa area.
The striking architecture embodies BayCare’s smart, progressive and reliable personality. It sets the company apart with a memorable aesthetic and employee-friendly features while also conveying fiscal restraint and responsibility. GS&P’s design solutions reflect the evolution of BayCare’s brand toward a vibrant community-health-focused institution rooted in its core values: respect, dignity and integrity.
