New Dental Clinic Opens at Carl T. Hayden Medical Center
GLHN’s design of a new dental building for the Phoenix Veterans Administration Healthcare System provides a state-of- the-art dental facility. Intended to expand and enhance the dental services for our veterans, the new facility provides thirty-three x-ray equipped operatories including one for Special Procedures and two for Oral Surgeries. For the comfort of their patients and safety of their staff, eleven operatories were equipped with patient lifts. The facility takes a comprehensive approach to the practice of dentistry incorporating five full service labs with 23 stations. This project was an interdisciplinary Building Information Model (BIM) construct that was fully coordinated in the digital environment with enhanced equipment scheduling. Project quality and constructability were improved through the linked and reconciled Structural, Architectural, Mechanical and Electrical BIM files.
