Our team worked with Five Rivers Health Centers to build a new consolidated facility to serve the Dayton community. The new location provides a one-stop-shop experience for the patient, allows providers to be utilized in more than one center efficiently, and creates a unique and inviting space for the patients.
The new Edgemont Campus also incorporates several sustainability measures, being mindful of the environment and the community. Built within the community it serves, FRHC provides social equity to the area. It is easily accessible through the local RTA transit, includes bike racks to access the Great Miami River Trail bike network, and electric vehicle charging with preferred parking for low-emission and fuel efficient vehicles. A bioswale filters stormwater runoff before returning it to water ways, and a white TPO roof keeps the surrounding area cooler, reducing the heat island effect. The new facility uses 30% less water than a comparable building and uses energy efficient VRF systems and a tight building envelope to reduce energy needs by over 24%. Solar sun shades and solarban glass help push good daylight into the space while cutting down on glare. Environmentally preferred products were installed throughout the building, with LED lighting used on each fixture to keep energy usage low. FRHC implements a dedicated recycling program that includes batteries and e-waste, and over 80% of all construction waste was recycled during construction.
