IU Health Tipton Hospital - New Physicians Medical Office Building Expansion

Tipton, Indiana

American Structurepoint’s architects, structural and civil engineers, and land surveyors collaborated to create this new $6 million, 2-story, 24,000-sft steel-framed medical office building. The project was a design-build delivery method with Cornerstone Companies acting as the developer and construction manager.

The structure includes a metal stud and brick veneer perimeter wall. The new medical office building adjoins the existing hospital with a new 2-story connector built independently from the existing hospital building and separated by an expansion joint. To maximize year-round use, the building was designed to create a microclimate in the exterior courtyard by maximizing sunlight in the fall and permitting wind flow during the warmer summer months. Additionally, energy performance has been enhanced through the careful placement of glazing and shading devices. This reduces the demand for interior lighting and creates a better interior atmosphere for occupants.
