Array collaborated with Gilbane and BBH on this 150,000 SF outpatient center for the Federal government. Sustainability is incorporated into the design as a means to improve the overall building environment and performance while respecting the construction project budget.
Other sustainable and LEED compliant features in the building have overall benefits to the environment including pollution and landfill reduction, optimized energy consumption, water use reduction, and recycled and regional materials use. Innovative design features include mercury elimination, low emitting furnishings, green cleaning practices and green education programs. This facility has received its LEED Silver certification.
Interior finishes will reflect the facility’s mission and patient profile, using evidence-based design metrics to develop a supportive interior environment that is conducive to healing the body & mind, promotes staff productivity & performance, expresses high quality design and is respectful of public monies. Information on needs and the patient population profile, including mental health requirements, gathered at user group meetings were used to inform the design direction and selection of finishes during the design process.
