Slocum Center for Orthopedic and Sports Medicine, Eugene, OR
This four-story steel framed medical office building with ambulatory surgery facilities opened in early fall 2008. Sustainable elements include energy efficient mechanical systems that relies on an sub-grade geothermal heat transfer mechanism to maximize efficiency, natural day-lighting; use of non-toxic materials for walls (bamboo), ceilings, and flooring (they eliminated the use of all material manufactured with PVC’s); landscaping that used indigenous, low-water plants; 85% of the buildings that were demolished on the site were recycled.
Construction of the building is composed of concrete fill over metal deck, supported on steel wide flange beams, girders and columns at the floors; similarly, roofs are constructed with metal decking spanning between steel wide flange beams and columns. The three-story portion of the building is designed for future build out of the fourth floor. The lateral load resisting system for the building is special concentric braced frames.
This project was awarded LEED GOLD.
