Nichols, Melburg and Rossetto Architects and Engineers designed Major General William H. Gourley Outpatient Clinic with a rectangular bar that is primarily comprised of metal siding with a warm metallic finish and horizontal banding. The L-shaped, three-story plan is oriented with the broad sides facing north and south with limited openings on the east and west to prevent harsh sunlight from entering the building. It has metal drop-off and entrance canopies, column covers and metal siding.

On the exterior, B.T. Mancini Co. Inc. installed 8,831 square feet of CENTRIA’s 2-inch-thick Formawall Series insulated metal panels (IMPs) in Champaign Bronze and 3,073 square feet of CENTRIA’s 2-inch-thick DS60 IMPs in Champaign Bronze. B.T. Mancini also installed 1,176 square feet of Quality Metalcrafts LLC/Americlad’s 0.125-inch-thick AC-3000 Aluminum Plate Panel System in Bone White at edges of picture windows. The panel system joints utilize a backer rod and caulk system, and include formed and return flange, and a slotted clip to accommodate expansion and contraction. Warm stone finish adds a centered, opaque feature to the windows on the west and east sides of the building.

The 150,000-square-foot Major General William H. Gourley Outpatient Clinic serves approximately 80,000 patients with primary and specialty care. It provides a wide range of outpatient services including primary care, pediatric care, eye care, podiatry, physical therapy, audiology, speech pathology, mental health, imaging and laboratory services. The clinic also has conference and group therapy spaces, a large cafeteria with adjacent outdoor eating space, and accessible, landscaped areas of respite for patients and staff. The LEED Gold-certified project was completed for $82 million in 2017.
