Peace Island Medical Center

2013

This new 39,000 SF greenfield critical access hospital provides care for the community of Friday Harbor.  The design team embraced the Living Building Challenge during the early schematic stages of the project to guide design decisions and minimize the environmental impact to the site.  The structural system on the main hospital wings creates clear spans on a consistent module, allowing for added efficiency and uniform day lighting through repetition.  Building Information Modeling (BIM) was utilized to coordinate design efforts and ensure MEP services for the hospital would route throughout the building free of clashes with adjacent systems.
