Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department Expansion

Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department Expansion

We provided architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, and mechanical, electrical, and structural engineering for the renovation and expansion of the Lincoln/Lancaster County Health Department. Spaces include clinical exam rooms, dental operatory rooms, animal control, environmental public health, WIC, and administrative offices. We also created a new, more identifiable entrance and expanded parking.

A major goal was to relieve overcrowding and provide improved operating efficiency. We reconfigured the functional arrangement of the 35,000-square-foot existing building, and organized the 45,000-square-foot addition to enhance visitor circulation and wayfinding, as well as increase separation so the facility complies with privacy laws.

Throughout the design process, we carefully mapped out construction staging and phasing to minimize disruptions to daily operations. When complete, the addition served as swing space to allow the renovation of the existing facility.
