Effective Design for Medical Facilities

Safety, non-hazardous indoor air quality, durability with ease of maintenance, and resilience are the top priorities when designing medical facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes, and outpatient clinics. Architectura SA advocates that a well designed and constructed medical building be energy-efficient & disaster-resistant while still providing an excellent indoor environmental quality (IEQ). Our full-service architecture design firm offers specialized design expertise utilizing Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) which results in a high-performance envelope system essential for Institutional-Medical facilities of critical importance. Building with Insulated Concrete Forms is now one of the most cost-effective ways to ensure these critical facilities are built with means of providing continuous operation before, during, & after a major disaster event. Most importantly, these ICF high performance envelopes dramatically simplifies and expedites the construction process in delivering required fire-rated/smoke barrier wall assemblies with superior noise control & indoor environments free of pollutants and allergens. The combined first-class characteristics of the thermal mass wall performance, double layer of continuous insulation, and its inherent air tight air & moisture barrier properties delivers a very cost-effective & superior envelope performance that is unmatched in the industry today.
