Vet Emergency and Referral
When Dr. David Bordelon
realized the complexity of designing a new hospital in the
hurricane prone Florida panhandle, he quickly decided he
needed the help of an expert. A man of meticulous research
skills, he came across HDA Architects and a relationship
Dr. Bordelon's vision
was of an 8,000 square foot state of the art surgical &emergency
facility. While conceived as being completed in 2 separate
phases, the first phase will be fully capable of providing
the patients with low invasive and non invasive diagnostic
procedures. Dr. Bordelon's new facility is also designed
for a wide variety of surgical procedures including soft
tissue, vascular, orthopedics, opthamology, and dental.
To assist in the efficient
transfer of critical information, the building is prewired
for the use of digital imagery of all kinds in areas such
as exam rooms, isolation, quarantine, and treatment rooms.
The project also presented
several unique challenges, such as the preservation of a
100 year old Live Oak and ensuring the new hospital is hurricane
prepared. To this effect, the facility has been designed
with roll away shutters and back-up generators to provide
comfort and shelter for animals and humans alike during
a powerful storm.
