Nemours duPont Pediatrics hired FCA to design their newly constructed medical office in Milford, DE to provide pediatric primary and specialty services, as well as geriatric care services. The clinic includes examination and treatment rooms, staff and patient support areas, diagnostic services such as X-ray and MRI, rehabilitation therapies, administrative offices, laboratory, and medication rooms. The geriatric care facility includes optometry services including eye exams and an Eyewear Shop.
The project’s design and construction utilized an Integrated Facility Design (IFD) approach. IFD incorporates four phases where a diverse team of end-users actively engages with the Architectural/Engineering team to concurrently design and document the project in a series of work sessions. It is an approach that has proven outcomes for reducing cost and schedule while eliminating waste.
The interior design approach is a continuation of the Nemours brand, using bright colors and interior architectural elements at each specialty space to assist in wayfinding. The spaces all have their own dedicated color palettes—including floor patterns and wall colors—that are also included within each exam room. The Senior Care Clinic uses a different color approach that is sensitive to an older patient population that may have a different perception of color and contrast between surfaces.
