Dental Outpatient Building

PF&A is currently providing healthcare architectural consulting services for a new 18,000 square foot building to house a dental outpatient clinic for the VA Medical Center in Martinsburg, WV.

This project’s original scope included space for both dental and audiology clinics and our initial design included both clinics. While using SEPS to validate the program, it was determined that the original program was inadequate to handle the current dental workload; SEPS results indicated more square footage for dental than was allotted by the preliminary program.

Due to these SEPS space requirements, the program was revised to include the dental portion of the project only. The audiology clinic portion of the project will be designed under separate contract. The building is being designed to allow for future vertical expansion.

Congratulations Emily!
