Tri-North Builders was the negotiated design-builder for two new Meriter clinics in Wisconsin: Deforest and Monona. Tri-North worked closely with Meriter and Kahler Slater to develop the goals for these two clinics and to determine what practice areas best fit with each clinic. We also worked diligently to ensure each clinic could easily be expanded in the future. Once construction commenced on each clinic, Tri-North managed the overall construction process on both projects as well as acting as the LEED® consultant for both projects.
This 57,600 square foot completely new medical facility was built to LEED® Gold standards, making it one of the most environmentally friendly buildings in the area. It is designed to provide full medical and health services including primary family care, lab & medical imaging services, and physical and other therapies.
This project’s most unique design concept is showcased at the building’s entrance where a set of large 2-story glass towers serve as welcoming visual beacons day and night. During the day, the beacons allow a copious amount of natural light into the interior which is enhanced by clerestory windows that connect the towers. At night, they light up beautifully, leading patients to the warm space.
The entire campus was crafted sustainably and with a focus on staff and patient comfort. In addition to the wonderful use of windows, outdoor patio areas and walking paths provide further connection to the outdoors. In-floor radiant heat was installed in all of the providers’ offices. The parking lot is lit by LED lighting, producing energy and upkeep savings. Regional and recycled materials were favored wherever possible within the budget.
