Gilbane-Peterson Clinic Replacement, Peterson AFB, CO
Colorado Springs, Colorado
This project is located on a site with unobstructed views of the Rocky Mountains. A majoy focus of the design brief was to create a building compatible with adjacent structures and oriend the Dental Treatment Rooms towards the mountain range to providea 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.
The existing dental clinic will be demolished at the completion of the replacement clinic.
