Case Study –¬†Hillsborough

NIKA is part of an integrated design-build and developer team working toward the construction of a 65,000 square foot primary care clinic for the Department of Veterans Affairs. The project, which sits on a 20.55 acre site in Central Florida, includes complete development of the site, including 482 parking spaces, perimeter access control, service roads, engineered detention ponds, and landscaping.

The project will allow for comprehensive services for outpatient medical care to veterans. This single-story, L-shaped building is organized into multiple clinics using the PACT care service model. Key departments include pathology and laboratory, pharmacy, clinics, mental health, hospital-based home care, audiology, physical medicine and rehab, prosthetics and sensory aids, radiology, occupational therapy, biomedical laboratories, emergency medical services, and all administrative service complements that facilitate the business of care and a delivery of services.

This building, which is designed for USGBC LEED Silver, is organized around a central concourse and entry rotunda that will serve as the connective social space and architectural highlight for this new state-of-the-art facility. The project design is being completed on time and on budget through an integrated effort between developer, builder, and design teams, resulting in a best value solution that is truly a high-performance building. NIKA was the architecture and engineering Designer of Record. Construction will start in spring 2017 and will be completed in approximately one year.
