21,000 SF Addition 10,000 SF Renovation

Project Description

The addition and renovations to the Gaston County Health Department was a complicated project. The renovation project was a 3 story building that was gutted and completely redesigned, a basement that was redesigned into a children’s dental clinic, and a large addition to the medical clinic. The staging of the design and construction was critical to keep the facility open and operating under the State of North Carolina standards. Once completed the new combined facility included an expanded Family Health Services division, new Women’s Health department, Home Care, Environmental Health, and new dedicated Children’s Health Services. Each department has its own examination rooms, offices, records storage, and waiting areas. To prevent the spread of airborne infectious diseases, the Adult Health section is isolated from the rest of the building with its own HVAC system, entrance, and Ultra-violent antibacterial lights in the halls and exam rooms. The lab area for the facility is centrally located for easy access from each department. To help the flow of people in and out of the facility several departments have separate entrances that are accessible to staff and visitors. The facility also includes a break area for the entire staff with separate restroom facilities.
