Kosair Children's Medical Center Brownsboro, Ky

The Kosair Children's Medical Center in Brownsboro, Ky. is designed to bring a specialized level of care to children in the Louisville, Ky. metropolitan area and surrounding region. Building elements such as appropriately sized doors for children, vibrant colors and playful interiors are designed to bring a sense of calming to the young patients that the facility serves.

Approximately 7,500 square feet of 0.80-aluminum panels in Berkshire Blue from Holland, Mich.-based Dri-Design, clad the new building.

Design for the project was provided by Laughlin Millea Hillman Architecture, Louisville. According to Ray Winter, project architect, the facility was designed to be playful, yet energy conscious with elements such as insulated concrete form walls, a fully integrated geothermal mechanical system, and fenestration specifically located to bring natural light into public spaces and a TPO roof system for increased solar reflectance.

The construction manager on the project was Messer Construction Co., Louisville, in partnership with The Mardrian Group, Louisville. Spohn Associates, Indianapolis, was the Dri-Design distributor.
