Dental/Medical Clinic and Office Renovation, NAS Oceana, VA
NAS Oceana was in need of a modernized and more efficient dental/medical clinic to serve our service men, women, and their families. RS&H assisted NAVFAC Mid-Atlantic with meeting this need by providing design services as part of a design-build team.
RS&H designed an updated waiting, reception and record storage area for the dental clinic, as well as a new office suite for medical evaluations. These renovated areas provide more efficient connectivity between the spaces and the necessary privacy to meet patient information confidentiality requirements.
The project team also performed on-site evaluation of the existing conditions of the facility and an in-depth investigation into the record drawings from the original design and subsequent renovations.
The facility had to remain functional throughout the construction. While designing, RS&H considered the daily needs for these spaces and the phasing requirements that would allow the facility to effectively serve patients throughout construction.
