Residents of Gainesville, Florida, will soon have access to an exciting new medical facility that’s not only efficient in its treatment of patients, but also in its use of energy. The $36 million, 72,000-square-foot University of Florida Health Springhill medical office building will bring internal medicine, family practice, child psychiatry, and several other practices together under one roof, enabling better continuity of care.
The facility is designed and will be constructed according to stringent sustainability standards. Expansive windows will enable natural light to stream into the building as automated blinds offer shade from the sun. High-efficiency lighting, heating, cooling, and insulation systems, as well as low water-use landscaping, will lessen the building’s environmental footprint and provide a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for patients.
This project is moving forward under general contractor CPPI, with subcontractor Central Florida Drywall and distributor INEX of Gainesville, and is scheduled for completion in August of 2018.
