Outpatient office prescribes metal for light

The project goal of the Winchester, Ky.-based Central Baptist Hospital expansion project was to provide a comfortable, modern environment conducive to healing for patients.

The project goal of the Winchester, Ky.-based Central Baptist Hospital expansion project was to provide a comfortable, modern environment conducive to healing for patients. Lexington, Ky.- based Brett Construction Co., a Memphis, Tenn.- based Varco Pruden Buildings builder, utilized Varco Pruden Buildings' Rigid Frame and Continuous Beam systems, which allowed for flexible interior space utilization.

Varco Pruden's SSR standing seam roof system in 24-gauge Galvalume was installed and the protruding front wing of the outpatient office adds natural, ambient light to three sides of the waiting room area. The exterior design includes fiber cement panels and stone, giving it a warm appearance.

The comprehensive 8,305-square-foot Central Baptist Hospital expansion, owned by Setzer Properties WIN LLC, Lexington, Ky., included the design and construction of an outpatient office with a waiting room, lab, supply rooms, staff offices, employee lounge, procedure room, two nurse stations, two consult rooms, 14 exam rooms and space for future growth that could be incorporated into the current layout.
