The construction of the new Zion Crossroads Health Clinic in Zion Crossroads, VA was completed in May 2012. The two-phased process involved the construction of a core building, two-story ambulatory healthcare shell, general practice clinic, radiology/imaging area and an outpatient surgery center. The facility’s design strikes a balance between traditional and contemporary, with ALPOLIC aluminum composite material from Mitsubishi Plastics Composites America Inc. helping to convey the latter.
Richmond, VA-based Baskervill, working in collaboration with the University of Virginia Physicians Group, designed the 46,000 sq. ft. outpatient care facility. The firm used brick to maintain the facility’s regional architectural context while turning to the ALPOLIC material to create a more contemporary feel. The ACM was fabricated and installed by W.H. Stovall & Company, Inc. of Ashland, VA.
Almost 30,000 sq. ft. of 4mm-thick, fire-rated ALPOLIC/fr material is featured on the project, with finishes that include Mica Anodic Clear, Mica Grey and Walnut Timber. The Mica-finished panels are used as an exterior cladding, on canopies and as window accents while the Walnut Timber panels are featured at the walk-up canopy for contrast and to create a more warm, welcoming feel.
