QUINCY, MA–JACA Architects announced that it has been awarded the design of a new urgent care facility in Quincy Center by Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton. The new facility will be located at 152 Parkingway in Quincy, MA
Given the size of the city of Quincy (with a population figure around 100,000), and the fact that the city’s only hospital closed in 2014, there has been a continual need for medical services. Work on this latest project is already underway – including preparatory attention to the exterior envelope and abatement of the interior asbestos as well as waterproofing of the parking deck. Construction began late last month.
JACA Architects was selected for this job in part based on their track record of effective and quality medical design, as well as expertise in the latest styles, codes, and innovations in healthcare architecture. Rebekah Clough, NCIDQ, LEED Green Associate, and Cristóbal Arria, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, serve as the leads on this project for JACA Architects.
“We are honored to bring additional, high-quality, accessible health care services to the city’s residents,” said Bill Epp, president of JACA Architects. “The scope of this project is to expand medical services into Quincy Center by using our extensive experience in health care projects throughout New England, and we are happy to be a part of this undertaking.”
