Explain the Project and its Unique Use of Masonry Materials and Techniques:
The South Jordan Medical Office Building is a one story facility located in South Jordan, Utah. The building design offers a valuable contribution to the community with its modern design and aesthetic appeal. It also offers a convenient pediatric clinic location in an area of the valley that has experienced heavy population growth over the last several years.
The architect and owner worked closely with the city to develop a design and select exterior materials that were both complementary and compatible to the local zoning ordinance.
Glass fiber reinforced concrete cladding, standing seam metal wall panels, and thin masonry cladding were utilized as the main exterior materials to provide a unique exterior modern design. The design encouraged modern design elements, while utilizing natural materials, such as masonry and glass, with limited metal accent.
The exterior design utilized alternating surfaces to articulate and differentiate the various volumes of space. This creates natural vistas from the inside to the outside, framing views to the eastern valley and Wasatch Mountains. The lobby is elevated to be a taller volume and utilizes curtain wall glazing to maximize natural daylight, which makes the entry more visible, welcoming and inviting. A compilation of materials, including concrete cladding, standing seam metal wall panels, and thin masonry cladding provide a clean, modern look and feel while preserving natural colors to fit within the context of adjacent buildings.
The masonry product utilized on this project was the Arris-tile Renaissance product in a smooth finish and limestone color. This thin-clad product line is an aesthetically pleasing material that is an economic solution and is easy to install. This masonry product was used to complement the other exterior materials selected and provide a sophisticated accent to the exterior elevations.
The masonry system was installed to a suitable solid substrate using polymer fortified mortars. Proper masonry techniques were used to ensure quality installation for the masonry wall system. For example, each stone was set in a full bed of mortar with all vertical joints full. Excess mortar was carefully removed and all joints tooled for a smooth clean finish.
The interior was designed in response to the owner’s request to develop a functional layout for the pediatric clinic while incorporating a playful design for children. The pediatric office interiors incorporate fun colors with modern light fixtures and furniture for a whimsical, playful feel. A fish tank divides the “well child” entrance from the “sick child” entrance. The architect worked closely with the doctors, nurses, and staff to understand the workflow and adjacency requirements. Themed painted murals were also incorporated into each of the exam rooms to further engage the children with a playful interior environment.
The South Jordan Medical Office building design offers a valuable contribution to the community with its modern design and aesthetic appeal using masonry to complement other materials and provide a sophisticated accent to the building.
