Hays Medical Office Building is a 103,000 s.f., 4-story facility located just outside of Austin in Kyle, Texas. The facility houses a 14,000 s.f. ambulatory surgery center on the first floor, and is designed for the possible future inclusion of a cancer treatment center. Special consideration was given to exterior materials (utilizing an EIFS skin) in order to complement an existing adjacent hospital.
GSRA achieved LEED Silver Certification for the core and shell portions of the project. Many of the finishes and fixtures were chosen for their sustainable features. Cork (rapidly renewable) products are being used as floor and wall materials in the double-volume entry lobby and common areas; low-flow toilet fixtures are utilized throughout; and a recycling room has been included in the first floor design.
