Ground Up – Designing from the Inside Out
Case Study 4,020 sq ft Ground Up with 600 sq ft finished mezzanine.
Project Description: Approx. 1.5 acres site to be developed with 2 pads, one larger pad for an 3,100 sq ft orthodontic office and one smaller 2,000 sq ft pad to be developed at a later date.
Project Goals: Build a 3,100 sq ft orthodontic office, doctor is hoping to stay within a set budget for design and construction.
Branding Goals: Strike a chord between traditional Texas Hills Country style; a modern layout and edgy interior design features. The design needed to express that the doctor is well established and experienced, he is the leading orthodontic expert in the region, but also modern and providing cutting edge services.
Green Curve Scope of Services Phase I: Develop design concepts for the building shell, PreQualify local architects/engineers and obtain proposals for site development and building shell design.
Green Curve Consultation: While the initial goal is to stay within 3,100 sq ft the team feels from the start based on the design program requirements that 3,100 sq ft will be too restrictive to meet his current spatial requirements, it will not allow for future growth, and expansion at a later date would be very expensive. It’s not going to cost that much more to build out an extra few hundred square feet. It’s important though to provide a layout within the 3,100 sq ft, that gives the doctor the visual tool to make an educated decision about what’s really required for the project investment.
