Designing a LEED® Silver Certified Clinic

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Outpatient Clinic serves to provide primary care to veterans throughout eastern North Carolina. As a sub consultant to BBH Design and alongside Array Healthcare Facilities Solutions, we designed a 155,000-square-foot outpatient clinic, which houses numerous departments, including urgent care, oncology, various clinics, pharmacy, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), audiology, and dental. For this fast-tracked design, we provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, medical gas, fire protection, site/civil, and structural engineering services.

Our design provided utilities to the entire building by way of normal and emergency power as well as conditioning from a central utility plant, which houses chillers, boilers, and pumps. The building was designed in accordance with the VA's Physical Security Design Manual standards for physical security, which include blast resistance of the exterior building's facade and progressive collapse resistance using the tie-force method.

The design obtained a LEED® Silver certification due to the use of computer modeling, an enthalpy economizer, high-efficiency chillers, condensing boilers, lighting controls, T-5 fixtures, overhangs on windows, low velocity coils and ductwork, and solar photovoltaics.
