Hoefer Wysocki, an architecture, planning, design and clinical technology consulting firm is pleased to announce that Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland (JBSA) Reid Health Services Center has achieved Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Gold certification. In collaboration with design-build partner JE Dunn Construction, the new two-story, 70,088-sq. ft. medical clinic includes 19 departments and offers primary care, pharmacy, clinical labs, and radiology services to more than 86,000 trainees in 130 units annually.
The new facility replaces a clinic originally built in 1967. The new clinic embraced evidence-based design (EBD) principles to create a patient-centered environment, improve the quality and safety of health care, develop a standardized, flexible and positive work environment for providers, minimize its environmental footprint, and reduce life-cycle costs.
Initially designed to LEED® Silver standards, the design-build team of JE Dunn, Hoefer Wysocki, BranchPattern, Bob D. Campbell & Co., Land3 Studio, and BHC Rhodes brainstormed early and often throughout all phases of design and construction to incorporate additional sustainable elements.
