OA Centers for Orthopaedics

Windham, Maine    

A 5,000-s.f. satellite clinic for OA Centers for Orthopaedics, this facility accommodates a two-doctor practice, with a related practice sub-lease at one end. The reception work area is shared, as are other staff areas, with separate patient check-in and check-out windows. Patient and staff flow was critical to the planning, so work areas are located along the corridors, which create a loop from entry to check-out. The design addresses other important concerns, such as acoustical separation and the use of natural light. Sustainable features range from the mechanical system design and a cutting-edge wall assembly to finish and substrate material selections.
