On this final blog post, we look at the Khan Lab School, where the Executive Director & President of the Board, Dominic Leichti, talked about...
MSU Kalamazoo Center for Medical Studies
This project involved the adaptive reuse of an existing dormitory building and the construction of a new five-level addition, creating a new 150,000 square foot medical center. Sparked by a need to centralize MSU operations in Kalamazoo, this project brought together a number of clinics and departments operating throughout the city. The resulting design provides for convenient movement of patients, staff, faculty and students throughout the facility.
Clinical spaces within this facility include family practice, general surgery, internal medicine, pediatrics, orthopedic surgery and transitional medicine. A pharmacy, clinical laboratory, radiology area, central records facility and transcription services department area also housed in the addition. In 1998 Diekema Hamann was contracted to design an expansion of the original pharmacy to 1100 square feet.
Original project completed in 1991. Pharmacy expansion completed in 1998. In 2007 Diekema Hamann designed a new 3000 SF simulation lab renovation and expansion to support the medical center's teaching capability.
The original project was estimated at $9,600,000 and met this budget upon completion. The pharmacy expansion project also met it's budget of $250,000.
Diekema Hamann was responsible for full architectural and interior design services.
