Picture perfect accessibility

As the veteran population in the United States continues to age, it’s getting harder for them to access key services. For many, making a big trip to the city isn’t an option. They need something close. That’s why the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) created community-based outpatient clinics like this one. Being nearby makes sure clients get what they need.

When it takes two years to plan a renovation like this, how can you make sure you have the latest medical tech on opening day? For this clinic, the decision on which devices to use couldn’t be made until a few months before the ribbon cutting. That was one of the reasons the VA used DIRTT. Prefabrication gave them flexibility. When technology evolves, like it always does, making last-minute changes to an office or patient area doesn’t require a tear down. Replace a few wall tiles and you can stay current without adding time to the schedule.

There was another reason that DIRTT was a great choice for the VA center. It looks good. When the designer wanted to incorporate photos taken by a local veteran, Corning® Willow® Glass let them do it. This hyper-thin glass delivers stunning optical clarity. Using it to apply these images to wall tiles didn’t just elevate the look of the space. It brought the focus of the building back to the people who were using it.
