Minimizing the Movement of Patients and Maximizing the Efficiency of Medical Practitioners
The Montevideo VA Medical Clinic needed a design / built medical services building with two distinct functions – patient services and clinic support. A component of the design requirement was to minimize patient movement while maximizing the ability of medical practitioners to move quickly from patient to support services.
Through Satellite Shelters industry leading design / build process, material and labor costs were controlled through the use of permanent modular technology. The building utilizes eight 14′ x 70′ modules places on a perimeter wall foundation at grade level. Simultaneous to factory construction of building components, we oversaw the necessary site, mechanical and foundation work that helped speed time to occupancy.
Patients and employees enjoy a bright and welcoming facility. The building in replete with architectural details, amenities and features that reinforce the processional care provided.
