Project Capsule: Lifepoint Medical Office Building – Cleveland, MS
This 10,600 sq foot modular medical facility in Cleveland, MS is home to five doctors. It contains multiple exam rooms, multiple private offices, an x-ray room, an audiology room, multiple restrooms and storage rooms.
Fire rated walls separate the offices from each other. The radiology room was built with a double truss to accommodate the weight of the x-ray equipment. Lead lined walls were added onsite and custom finishes to the rooms occurred after installation of the equipment.
In order to achieve ADA compliance, the prefabricated facility was constructed with a pit set and retaining wall. A block foundation adds support and eliminates any potential erosion. For moisture control, a blower system was installed at one end of the building and louvers at the other to allow airflow under the building. The Exterior Insulation and Finishing System (EIFS) exterior finish increased the energy efficiency R rating of the building. Therefore, the building requires less energy to heat and cool, providing utility cost savings of over 20%.
The timely completion of this complex allowed the doctors to open the facility quickly and begin serving their patients.
