The Project : Edgewater worked closely with Dr. Reed and his staff to develop a new space layout to his existing office, ensuring his vision would improve efficiencies and the final design would fulfill all the City of Chesapeake’s code requirements for building permits.
The clinic’s interior build out of the space accommodated a HIPPA-compliant reception area and check-in area, three adjustment rooms, an x-ray room with an adjoining dark room, a private exam room, consult office, a fully-equipped therapy suite, and a separate office for the insurance team.
Our scope of work included renovating a new x-ray room with lead walls and installing the equipment following strict industry guidelines and rules for x-ray areas. In order to supply comfort and protections to stakeholders, Edgewater upgraded the mechanical, plumbing, electrical and fire supression systems.
The Reed Chiropractic project included demolition and improvements to his exterior signage.
The Challenge : X-Ray facilities construction is strictly regulated.
Value Added : Edgewater drew on their past experience and knowledge of health care facility design to construct a fully compliant x-ray room and film development area.
Client : Dr. Josh Reed
Location : Chesapeake, VA
