Clinicas de Salud del Pueblo

Posted: January 14, 2020 | Projects

This two-story 45,000-square-foot state-of-the-art medical facility was constructed using concrete tilt-up, with an internal steel frame and concrete and steel-composite floors. Window openings were carefully sized to provide ample daylight while minimizing unnecessary solar gain. The lighting is high efficiency LED with a central networked lighting controls system throughout the building. High efficiency rooftop package units were also installed to provide for heating and cooling needs. The architectural expression of the building is intended to reflect the area’s desert setting and agricultural history. Custom patterning of the concrete wall panels evokes the land division of fields and parcels. The panels are painted in shades drawn from the surrounding desert landscapes.

Consumer Cellular

Posted: December 31, 2019 | Projects

This project is a best-of-class example of an adaptive re-use redevelopment. A 105,000-square-foot former Sam’s Club retail warehouse building was converted into a 164,000-square-foot call operations center for Consumer Cellular, a leading telecommunications tenant. The 61,000-square-foot second floor addition to the existing 105,000-square-foot building footprint was organized to maintain a two-story perimeter height volume at the perimeter edge of the building. Along a center spine all public office, training room functions, and new bathrooms cores were consolidated to buffer the more acoustically sensitive needs of the call center stations located in four quadrants adjacent to the central spine.
