Design Solutions - Winter 2018 - 16

The AFMS mission is
to create consistent and
professional interior spaces
to enhance and promote
wellness and healing.
To sustain world-class
healthcare, and develop the
next generation of U.S. Air
Force medics, it is paramount
to recruit, train and retain the
best and brightest. Providing
excellent environments is a
key component to this effort,
leveraging all facets that
shape the continuum of care
within a medical facility.
Located on the edge
of New Mexico's White
Sands National Monument,
the 99,000 square foot
replacement medical clinic
is a prime example of AFMS
and the design build team
working collaboratively to
incorporate current best
evidence based design,
achieve performance, social
responsibility goals, and
design appropriate, cost
effective solutions in support

of the mission. The facility
houses active military, flight
medicine, family health,
public health and pediatric
outpatient clinical care as well
as ancillary functions including
pharmacy, physical therapy,
radiology, lab, administration
and support areas.

The $44 million project,
$474,000 of which was
designated for qualitycertified architectural
woodwork, was completed
in June 2017 and received
a USAF Design Awards
Program Honor Award.
The architectural firm
commissioned for the project
was Sherlock, Smith &
Adams, Inc. of Montgomery,
Alabama. Architectural
woodwork was fabricated and
installed by Classic Millwork
and Products, Inc., an AWI
member firm located in El
Paso, Texas.

Design Concept
The facility's planning
is simple and direct -- two
orthogonally-organized twostory blocks, each featuring
two open courtyards, are
connected by a two-story
high central lobby, reception,

waiting, and circulation area.
This main public area referred
to as "Main Street" admits
abundant daylight into the
heart of the building, providing
multiple opportunities for
awareness of the exterior
environment, enhancing wellbeing and orientation, and
simplifying wayfinding.
Generous expanses of
glass, including an expansive
curtain wall and sky lights,
are used to visually highlight
the main entry area. A freeflowing terrazzo pattern
mimicking the white sands
components of water, rock
and gypsum intuitively leads
to freestanding main check-in
and the primary circulation
spine, "Main Street".
