Despite the challenges for healthcare facilities over the last year coping with the many challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations continue to start and even complete construction projects that expand and upgrade their spaces and services.
Construction has finished on Parkland Health & Hospital System’s Moody Center for Breast Health in Dallas, located on the first floor of the system’s new outpatient clinic building, a freestanding six-floor medical building, according to Healthcare Construction+Operations. The newly opened 40,000-square-foot clinic is designed to be a hopeful environment for patients, helping to ensure they return for follow-up care after their initial appointments.
The design features improvements for environmental performance, and the project is expected to receive a LEED Silver rating. The team employed off-site prefabrication for panels that cover the north and south walls, with curtain infills for the remaining sections. Under the scope of the project, the construction team conducted site and civil work, including underground utilities from central utility plant to the outpatient clinic.See the latest posts on our homepage
