Energy efficiency and storm safety were a major focus with the design and construction of the Gear medical office. Stevens Construction applied sprayed-on insulation to the bottom of the roof deck in order to provide better insulation and additional roof support against high winds. High-impact, low-energy glass windows protect the building against damaging hurricane-strength winds and reduce heating and cooling costs. The building is also equipped with an emergency generator.

The 5,451-square-foot single story medical office building features a richly textured exterior facade, including a red tile roof, two-tone Mediterranean color scheme and molded exterior banding. Landscaping enhances the exterior appeal and provides soothing views from the building’s exam rooms. Inside, the reception area’s lofty wood plank ceiling and warm neutral colors set the tone for an inviting interior setting.

Stevens Construction encountered a scheduling constraint due to delays in permitting and the delivery of materials. Dr. Gear was moving out of a leased office space and needed to move into his new facility on schedule in order to continue uninterrupted patient care. The Stevens’ team was able to reduce the timeline by two weeks closely monitoring the critical path schedule and was successful in meeting the client’s goal.
