  • A Safer, Quieter and Healthier Building
  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Storm Safety
  • Energy Efficiency

The Opportunity

Building owner Dr. Tri Nguyen, wanted to expand his dermatology practice and build a second medical office in the Greater Houston area. The Mohs micrographic-trained surgical dermatologist wanted his newest office in Spring, Texas to incorporate feng shui techniques with long-lasting, sustainable materials from Texas.

Dr Nguyen was also interested in products that would help him save costs and construction time.

Patients are now also influenced by their experience, including comfortability, and are more likely to share their opinions, both positive and negative, online.

The caliber of staff is another important part of a successful practice. What it’s like working inside the building is an important element in the ability to attract and retain high quality employees.

Key Design Features

As owner and operator of Texas Surgical Dermatology, Dr. Nguyen wanted to provide his patients a higher quality experience by giving them a safe, quiet and more comfortable indoor environment. Dr. Nguyen and his general contractor, Jonathan Greene, considered many materials for this building and found all that they wanted and more in the Bautex Wall System.

The medical office sits just north of Houston along the Texas Gulf Coast, a hot-humid region that poses a consistent threat of hurricanes and other inclement weather. The Bautex Wall System provided the project:

  • R-14 continuous mass wall that exceeds energy codes by 250%

  • Noise reduction with high sound transmission class (STC) of 51

  • Protection from mold, mildew and rot inside exterior walls

  • ICC and FEMA rated windstorm protection

  • 4-hour fire rated walls

Conclusion

Bautex Blocks helped Dr. Nguyen and Texas Surgical Dermatology create an appealing, functional space that exceeds modern building requirements and the latest building codes. All of this means Dr. Nguyen has a safer, quieter, and healthier building for his patients and employees. His patients and visitors have described the building as “elegant, calming, refined, relaxing, classy, and beautiful.”
