Stafford King Wiese Architects and Page Southerland Page, Joint Venture, is the design team for the 158,000 SF Clinical Expansion project at the VA, Sierra Nevada Healthcare System, Reno Campus. The project will accomplish renovation of approximately 90% of Building 1, with the exclusion of the major utility and life safety improvements which were completed recently.
This project will provide the following upgrades in Building 1 which is approximately 138,007 square feet.
- Seismic upgrades to reduce/eliminate the possibility of catastrophic failure of the 60+ year old building should a significant seismic event occur.
- Correct life safety and infrastructure deficiencies.
- Substantially improve building energy efficiencies.
In addition, this project will construct up to approximately 100,000 square feet of clinical expansion based on the VA SEPS program to correct space deficiencies at the campus. The Research Program would also be increased as part of this project. The following programs will be impacted and will benefit from the proposed project: Mental Health, Dental, Compensation and Pension, Audiology, Patient Admissions and Testing, Surgical Service, Quality Management, Veterans Service Offices, Warehouse, Voluntary Services, Veterans Eligibility Center, Geriatrics and Extended Care, Dietetics, In-patient Kitchen, Morgue, Laboratory and Pathology Services, Research, Surgical Service, Medical Service, Ambulatory Care (Patient Centered Medical Home), OEF/OIF, and Women's Health Clinic.
