Satellite Clinic Tenant Infill
IMEG provided structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, and technology design services for a new U.S. Air Force clinic in Tampa, Florida. The developer, FD Stonewater, is leasing the building to the Air Force/GSA. IMEG worked with the owner, architect, and FD Stonewater to design a core and shell package, as well as a tenant improvement package, for the space.
The clinic houses facilities for internal medicine, mammography and ultrasound, pathology, pediatric clinic, pharmacy, primary care, radiology, women’s clinic, and management and support areas.
The new, replacement clinic increases space for operations almost doubling in size from the old satellite clinic which served 750 patients and filled more than 2,000 prescriptions weekly. By expanding the pharmacy, diagnostic imaging and medical administration space, providers and patients are given the best care possible. The increased floor space will provide a more fluid environment and a more pleasant experience by giving each clinical area more space to provide care to patients.
Project design followed the Uniform Facilities Criteria (UFC) as it pertains to design of Military Medical Facilities. Mechanical design includes rooftop air handling units and an air-cooled chiller. Structural design includes rooftop supports for HVAC units with columns down to new footings due to the limited capacity of the existing roof structure. Electrical design includes LED lighting and a new 460V/3 phase service to support the clinic equipment and HVAC units. Plumbing design includes new infrastructure and below grade sanitary piping to support exam room sinks. Technology design includes structured cabling and rough-in for other low voltage systems.
