Evergreen Health Building Expansion
Evergreen Health Services had outgrown their existing space in a historic building and decided to expand into their parking lot with a five-story, 27,000-square-foot addition. C&S provided site/civil engineering for the expansion. Site work included nine first-floor parking spaces covered by the building and tie in to the 14-space patient parking lot. Additional site improvements include courtyard, curb, sidewalk and streetsca ping elements. Planting boxes and street trees were added along the frontage of the corner lot. The layout took into consideration proposed street restriping plans to add a protected bike lane. The courtyard was laid out to be a significant design feature for the employees. New utilities enter the building to service both the expansion and the historic building. Underground stormwater detention controls peak runoff. A major design consideration was to preserve the historical integrity of the existing building while providing a modern building.
