Austin Regional Clinic Breaks Ground on 20,000 SF Building

Bautex Block selected for durability, energy efficiency

Archi­tects and devel­op­ers for Austin Regional Clinic (ARC) selected Bautex Block for its new 20,000 square foot clinic in Cedar Park, Texas. ARC is one of central Texas’ largest pro­fes­sion­al medical groups, providing com­pre­hen­sive health care to indi­vid­u­als and families through­out the community. The Same-Day Care Center will be ARC’s first stand-alone facility for urgent care services, and is scheduled for com­ple­tion by spring 2017

The new ARC clinic is the first medical center in Central Texas to use Bautex Block, which will be used to construct all of the exterior walls in the facility. Once the blocks are filled with concrete, they will provide the new building with unpar­al­leled energy effi­cien­cy, dura­bil­i­ty, fire resis­tance, storm safety and noise mit­i­ga­tion. Bautex Block also provides thermal stability, air tightness and resis­tance to mold and mildew in the structure, creating a healthier indoor envi­ron­ment for all who work at and visit the center.
