McCall Sharp Architecture recently completed the New Urbana Physical Therapy Office in Urbana, Ohio. The facility is a state-of-the-art physical therapy facility utilizing architectural design techniques such as ample natural lighting and window areas which connect the inside to the outside, open and spacious patient areas with ease of patient flow, and inviting and clean materials. These all work together to create what the client described as their design goal of "a healing environment" for their patients.

The project is a masonry and steel bearing structure, which incorporates unique elements such as multiple roof elevations, integration of clear anodized aluminum window frames, metal coping and canopies throughout, architectural pre-colored masonry walls with accent bands to match the anodized window pattern theme, and a large clear anodized aluminum and glass facade with banding continuous with the masonry accents.

The facility contains a warm water therapy pool, a large therapy gymnasium, and private treatment rooms. Spaces are provided in the building for nearly every type of physical therapy treatment in practice today. Patients are welcomed into an open and inviting waiting/reception area where they are greeted by office staff over an open counter. Tasteful artwork is displayed throughout the entire facility, adding to the overall patient experience.

One of the most unique aspects of the facility was having it built in just four months. Maximizing the time benefit for the client, the contractor completed the project in record time and with quality and care for the client. This extra effort allowed the owner to take advantage of a $100,000 one-time tax credit for the year 2003.

The owner and his staff are excited about the move. "The new building will allow us to continue our successful programs as well as offer new services like pool therapy, fibromyalgia rehabilitation, sports enhancement, and various wellness programs. We also plan to expand our industrial rehabilitation program to include functional capacity evaluations." He further stated, "We believe that the environment in which we place our patients can either enhance or inhibit their recovery. So we wanted a building that was both functional and attractive, a building that looked good on the outside and felt good when people walked in. We are confident that our new building will accomplish that."
