SMPC recently completed a two-story medical clinic addition that helps serve the critical need for expanded services in dentistry and behavioral health in the rural community of the Pecos Valley in northern New Mexico.
The 9,700 square foot expansion more than doubles the existing medical building and adds parking for more than 40 vehicles. The lower level houses a new dental suite with seven operatories, and behavioral treatment offices, with a common waiting area. Administrative functions and staff support occupy the upper level.
The new building rests behind the existing entry and strengthens the facility’s presence on the site. It connects directly to the existing main lobby, with a central stair and elevator for convenient access to upper level offices and staff facilities. A separate small lower-level addition provides a new staff breakroom, important for the well-being of busy employees.
A pedestrian bridge connects the upper level to the existing office building across the drainage swale to the west, and provides a direct entrance from staff parking. The new swale provides improved drainage for the sloping site.
A north-facing second floor exterior balcony allows views to the Pecos Mountains, and serves as an employee break area for the second level. The new sloping roof aids in snow melt and drainage, and strengthens the building mass composition.
