Construction of the new health clinic in Zion Crossroads, Virginia wrapped up earlier this year. Fabricated and installed by W.H. Stovall & Company, Inc., the two-phased process involved the construction of a core building, two story ambulatory healthcare shell, general practice clinic, radiology/imaging area, and an outpatient surgery center.
In collaboration with the University of Virginia Physicians Group, architectural firm Baskervill designed the 46,000 square foot outpatient care facility. Architecturally, Baskervill sought to provide a quality, up-to-date facility while maintaining the regional context. To achieve this, classic materials such as brick were used in conjunction with the more contemporary appeal of ALPOLIC’s aluminum composite panels.
Used for exterior cladding, canopies, and window accents, ALPOLIC panels successfully provided aesthetics that are both progressive and locally represented. While the use of ALPOLIC’s Mica finishes provide a modern twist, the contrasting use of Walnut Timber panels at the walk-up canopy complement the surrounding Shenandoah Valley. Additionally, the nature-themed color palette and wood grain panels provide a calming experience and welcoming environment.
