Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa Medical Office Building
This three-story new-build medical office building will include primary care services: family medicine, health education, obstetrics, gynecology, dermatology and podiatry, and supporting imaging, laboratory and pharmacy units. The building will serve both existing and new members with space for 40-45 health care providers.
Integral Group is providing mechanical, electrical and plumbing design services, as well as sustainability consulting. The design intent is to achieve LEED Gold certification and be net zero ready. Thermodynamically zoned heat pumps will save one million dollars in HVAC first costs. This zoning, combined with electro-chromatic glazed glass and tilted photovoltaic panels in the parking lot, help contribute to the net zero energy ready status of the building. Other sustainability measures included are building orientation optimization, locally sourced natural materials and those with a large recycled content, and water conservation including landscaping with drought-tolerant native plants watered by weather-based drip irrigation.
Collaboration is key in this design-assist delivery. Integral Group is coordinating with the contractor team during the design phase to provide fully-coordinated construction documents. This eliminates the need for shop drawings and unprecedented value-engineering, and improves progress in construction.
