Riddle Memorial Hospital | PA

from the client

“We worked with the hospital to implement a master planning strategy for the design of the new facility and the surrounding campus, which included full architectural documentation, structural engineering, lighting design, and MEP services.  The precast/prestressed concrete structural system used in this design achieved maximum use of the space available by using effective column layout and spacing, as well as ideal floor-to-floor heights.  In addition, by understanding and embracing the need to incorporate sustainable design principals into all construction projects, we designed the parking structure utilizing numerous sustainable design strategies, including fly ash concrete, regional materials, and Low-E glazing of the massive glass stair towers.  The use of precast/prestressed concrete also contributed LEED points/sustainable features to the hospital campus.”
