The innovative 52,000 SF, two-story, steel-framed building with partial basement and an adjacent 100-space surface parking lot is situated on a four-acre undeveloped site. The Center will contain 56 child-friendly examination rooms, plus rooms dedicated to radiology, hearing and vision testing, and a phlebotomy laboratory. The facility will also house community programs offered by Children’s Hospital. The Center plans to accommodate over 45,000 outpatient visits annually.
The project achived LEED Silver accreditation, and features roof-mounted solar panels, extensive day-lighting and pervious pavements for site parking and walkways. The striking façade features random patterns of laminated colored glazing in keeping with the pediatric aesthetic of the facility while reinforcing CHOP’s practice of innovation in medical care. The building’s form is also designed to accommodate flexible planning within the building interior as well as future expansion.
