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.
