Project No.: 06005
Location: Buffalo, New York
Client: Kaleida Health
Area: 2,000 SF
Construction Complete: July 2008
This project was a 2,000 sq. ft. children's MRI suite renovation with supporting clerical work space, reception area, waiting room and administrative offices. Our goals were to create a more efficient workspace and patient flow, and an environment that would increase customer satisfaction. Through the use of a sophisticated color scheme and architectural details we created a soothing and relaxing environment for adults as well as contrasting areas with murals and wooden trees defining creative areas for children to play.
