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.
