Green buildings, with their natural light and excellent indoor air quality, have the potential to make a big difference in the healthcare industry. At some point, there’s going to be the world’s first LEED Platinum healthcare facility in the world and Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas just might be the location to do it. The 32-acre, $200 M project is on schedule to take LEED Platinum, if everything goes as planned. The pictures are magnificent and we here at Jetson Green think it would be great if no one ever had to go inside! TBG Partners was kind enough to provide photos of the work they’re doing on the project, which includes site planning, sustainable design, and landscape architectural services.
Speaking of their work, Brian Ott, LEED AP and principal with TBG Partners, said, "We designed various courtyard environments to reflect the biodiversity of Central Texas by incorporating six ecoregions, each corresponding to a distinct area of the hospital’s 46-county service region … since the installments, Dell Children’s has received widespread acclaim for combining cutting-edge medical technology with art and green building design to create a cohesive healing environment."
