This new Cancer Treatment Center was designed to complement the surrounding buildings on the Overton Brooks VA Medical Center campus with matching brick, cast stone, and aluminum window systems. The interior was designed with a balance of aesthetics, durability and timelessness in order to create a welcoming environment for veterans and their families.
The intent of this project was to create a full-service Cancer Treatment Center to serve the Shreveport area by including medical oncology, radiation oncology and hematology services under one roof. The Medical Oncology Department included (14) chemotherapy bays, an isolation room, pharmacy, blood draw, (8) exam rooms and triage. The Radiation Oncology Department included (2) linear accelerators, a computed tomography (CT) simulator, (3) exam rooms, an exam procedure room, dosimetry, and physics lab.
Spur Design issued 100% Construction Documents, but the project was canceled due to budget restraints.
This Dental Clinic was to be developed on an existing parking lot adjacent to the existing VA hospital. Site access, parking impact, photo-voltaic (PV) impact and site drainage were key concerns throughout design development of this clinic and site. Also taken into consideration was the future planning of a new Audiology Clinic to be located adjacent to the new dental clinic.
The floorplan includes two distinct wings, general dentistry and specialization, both located along opposite perimeters of the building to provide patients with optimum daylighting and views. Centralized support spaces linking the wings were to provide for greater productivity and enable the dental team to provide the best Veteran Centered care to their patients.
