Medical Plaza 400
The owner purchased an existing pre-engineered building that was originally designed and built for a motorcycle shop. CDH repurposed it for the use as a medical facility. A mezzanine covers about one half of the foot print of the building. This area was structurally expanded with steel framing columns and a concrete slab to create a second floor level. The owner also purchased an adjacent lot to increase the parking capacity from 60 to 147 spaces.
The 14,000 sf ground floor facility contains an Urgent Care center with a dedicated entrance, ambulance pick-up, and public walk-in area. There also is a sports medicine practice on the ground floor that shares a waiting room and a check-in counter with urgent care. The facility also contains a medical lab area for blood and urine collection and testing.
The imaging center has a separate accessible hallway for predominately women’s imaging such as bone density, mammography, and ultrasound. The CT and MRI scan rooms share a common control room but the windows are offset so patients cannot see the CT room thru the control area from MRI room. The X-ray room is directly supported by nearby tech work area and state-of-the-art physicians reading room.
The 13,000 sf second floor contains Northeast Georgia Physician Group’s Dawsonville Family Practice along with space for three additional specialty practices. These groups share a waiting and a check-in/check-out area along with a conference room, small lab, clean supply room. and staff lounge.
There are 21 exam rooms, two procedure rooms, seven physician offices and four nurse’s stations. In addition to NGPG suite, there is also a single practice time share suite with three exam rooms, an office, toilets, reception area, nurse’s station, clean and soiled rooms.
The public enters the facility beneath a new steel and wood canopy into welcoming two-story lobby with porcelain tiled flooring and a curved monumental stairway. Stone elements along with a glass curtain wall and railings provide natural light and a sense of openness and space. These elements contrast the original brick veneer surrounding portions of the exterior and bringing added warmth into the vestibule and lobby.
