Perkins Eastman / Lend Lease Americas / Lend Lease Americas
369,719 sf

This Veterans Administration Health Care Center facility, located in Kernersville, North Carolina, achieved LEED for Healthcare Gold certification. This project included the construction of a 369,719 sf medical outpatient facility, parking areas, and associated site improvements. The east-west orientation allows the building to take full advantage of the solar impact in the winter, reducing the cost of the HVAC operations, resulting in a much more sustainable development. It's bio‐filtration area provides a striking site amenity serving as a promenade that directs all visitors to the main entrance.

The building itself was designed to play an active part in the delivery of care to Veterans through design solutions that have proven effective -- access to nature, to daylight, to views, and to places of respite that all give a sense of well‐being. The ability to make the built environment an actual partner in delivering better healthcare to our Veterans was the motivation. The architect’s design solution focused on simplification of the architecture -- of form, circulation and systems, resulting in a more relaxing Veteran experience from the moment he/she sees the building from Kernersville Medical Parkway and throughout the entire stay.
