This innovative 10,000 SF office and clinic is the headquarters and main business branch for a major South Jersey orthopaedics practice. The building utilizes a “patient first” approach to design that involved a close collaboration with the key head-doctors of the practice. Lean design principles are focused on continuous improvement by a carefully examining the organization’s current method of operations in order to eliminate waste, optimize the practice’s efficiency, and enhance the patient experience.

The project was executed utilizing an “Integrated Project Delivery” method, where the architect coordinated closely with the developer and the design-build contractor. This IPD team performed comparative cost and schedule analysis for systems and materials while simultaneously identifying portions of the work that could be fast-tracked. The project team’s close collaboration was key to the project’s successful completion both on schedule and on budget.

Shore Orthopaedic Floor Plan

The floor plan is organized by a clear circulation system of 5-foot wide corridors that differentiate the patient and staff zones, and ensure privacy (exceeding HIPAA standards) and efficiency for both. Natural light throughout the building conveys a sense of transparency and openness. Controlled views to the outside, especially to a private semi-enclosed garden, create a sense of well being. Physical therapy facilities feature large windows with a view to the garden and an outdoor therapy terrace.
