Peterson Clinic Replacement, Peterson AFB
Colorado Springs, Colorado
Healthcare space shortfalls at Peterson Air Force Base’s prior dental facilities were impacting the quality of care for military personnel. In association with Gilbane Building Company, LEO A DALY helped bring a replacement dental clinic to Peterson Air Force Base that is now sufficiently sized, along with site and infrastructure improvements.
The new clinic sits on a site with unobstructed views of the Rocky Mountains. A major focus of the design brief was to create a building compatible with adjacent structures and orient the Dental Treatment Rooms toward the mountain range to provide a calming effect for patients. The facility's curved architectural design fosters this principle while meeting Peterson AFB architectural design principles.
The replacement dental clinic includes 21 dental treatment rooms, dental lab, logistics, command and support spaces. Supporting facilities include utilities, site improvements, access roads and parking.
The facility is required to meet LEED 3.0 Silver verification standards and contains sustainable features such as a geothermal well field for heating and cooling of the facility and solar hot water heating. The electrical design uses a central battery system for continued service to the facility in the event of a power failure and incorporates solar tubes and LED lighting for optimal sustainable design for the lighting of the facility.
