Austin Regional Clinic

PROVIDING QUIET AND COMFORTABLE SPACES FOR STAFF AND PATIENTS

The Opportunity

Austin Region­al Clin­ic (ARC) is a well-regard­ed pri­ma­ry care provider and one of the largest pro­fes­sion­al med­ical groups in Cen­tral Texas. ARC Bee Cave was con­struct­ed to offer fam­i­ly doc­tor and pedi­a­tri­cian in the com­mu­ni­ty of Bee Cave, a fast-grow­ing sub­urb just west of Austin. The Kemp Prop­er­ties and ARC teams chose Bau­tex walls for this clin­ic to pro­vide qui­et and com­fort­able spaces for staff and patients while keep­ing ener­gy and main­te­nance costs low.

Key Design Features

Noack-Lit­tle Archi­tects and Neel Mor­ton Office of Archi­tec­ture part­nered on this project to give ARC their sec­ond facil­i­ty using the Bau­tex Wall Sys­tem. In 2016, staff at Austin Region­al Clin­ic Cedar Park imme­di­ate­ly noticed how qui­et and com­fort­able their new med­ical build­ing was and want­ed to use the Bau­tex sys­tem again.

The Bau­tex Wall Sys­tem was used for the major­i­ty of the build­ing enve­lope on this sin­gle-sto­ry build­ing, with final wall heights rang­ing from 16 to 20 feet tall. The Bau­tex walls inte­grat­ed well with struc­tur­al steel com­po­nents of the build­ing, includ­ing a 27 feet tall ele­vat­ed roof struc­ture and cleresto­ry win­dows which dom­i­nates the view from the park­ing lot.

The archi­tects designed the build­ing with both ver­ti­cal and hor­i­zon­tal artic­u­la­tions as well as used sev­er­al dis­tinct fin­ish­es to give the project a unique high cal­iber look. The use of Bau­tex Block and Air and Mois­ture Bar­ri­er allowed the pri­ma­ry wall sys­tem to remain behind all of the dif­fer­ent fin­ish­es.

ARC knows that the qual­i­ty and com­fort of their facil­i­ties direct­ly con­tributes to staff pro­duc­tiv­i­ty and high­er patient sat­is­fac­tion. Using the Bau­tex Wall Sys­tem allowed them to cre­ate a qui­eter, health­i­er, and more com­fort­able space in a cost-effec­tive and prac­ti­cal way. They also ben­e­fit from low cost of oper­a­tion and main­te­nance and long-term dura­bil­i­ty that would be dif­fi­cult to achieve with con­ven­tion­al build­ing sys­tems.

Results

Quiet Spaces for Building Occupants
The sound reduc­ing prop­er­ties of the Bau­tex Wall Sys­tem keeps noise from the busy near­by high­way com­plete­ly out of the build­ing, mak­ing staff and patients hap­py.

Quality Patient Experience
The aes­thet­ics, design and con­struc­tion of this build­ing work togeth­er to rein­force the feel­ing of qual­i­ty med­ical care that they receive from ARC.

Low Energy Costs
Build­ing right means sig­nif­i­cant long-term cost sav­ings for air con­di­tion­ing the build­ing in the hot-humid cli­mate of Cen­tral Texas.

Low Maintenance Costs
Sol­id, durable and well insu­lat­ed and pro­tect­ed walls with abuse resis­tant fin­ish­es sub­stan­tial­ly reduce the cost of ongo­ing main­te­nance and repairs.
