AWARD-WINNING PROJECT

AREA:
1.2 million GSF

 

COMPLETED:
2015

 

Located within Lake Nona’s Medical City, the VA Medical Center provides a full spectrum of inpatient and outpatient services to veterans while emphasizing clinical efficiencies, integrated technologies, and patient/family amenities. The campus comprises a 134-bed hospital, 120-bed nursing home, 60-bed residential rehabilitation facility, clinic, diagnostic and treatment areas, chapel, support/administration areas, warehouse, and two 1,200-space parking structures.

Careful site planning maximizes natural views from patient areas and the stately, symmetrical design* places high-volume areas close to the main entry for easy access. The hospital and clinic are connected by a glass, steel, and concrete atrium topped by a “super roof” that aids in wayfinding while collecting rainwater and housing solar panels along its entire length.

 

AWARDS:

  • LEED Silver certification
  • 2010 AIA Orlando Merit Award for Design
  • 2010 AIA Technology in the Architectural Practice (TAP) Building Information Modeling Awards (Creating Stellar Architecture Using BIM)

 

*Design completed as a joint venture with Ellerbe Becket
