General Description

The design provides a state of the art Ambulatory Care Center/Dental Clinic for Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Area 1:  Existing Facility:  The existing Schriever AFB Medical/Dental Clinic is an approximate 11,715 square foot, one story building built in 2004.  Major areas of the existing clinic building will be renovated and repurposed as part of this project. The existing building will continue to house the dental clinic, the medical XRay room, the mental health clinic, and support and administration functions.  The existing building will also house Base Environmental Engineering Department which is being relocated from elsewhere on the Installation.

Area 2:  Addition:  An addition is being provided to house those spaces included in the PFD that will not be housed in the existing facility.  As required by the Program, the addition does not exceed 14,100 gross square feet in area.  The addition will house the family medicine, flight medicine and public health clinics, the Physical Therapy Department, the Laboratory, the Pharmacy and supporting spaces.  The addition is also designed to provide a mechanical room and related mechanical yard sized to accommodate the required equipment.

Area 3:  Main Entrance:  The existing facility has a strong main entrance element, which will be eliminated as part of the project.  The entrance piece designed in a fashion similar to the existing entrance will be reconstructed to provide a new entrance located between the existing building and the addition.  A curvilinear stone entrance piece is bisected by the main entrance to visually tie the existing building and the addition together.
