LGH/Penn Medicine Manheim Outpatient and Therapy Office
In order to better serve patients in Lancaster County’s Manheim area, Lancaster General Health Physicians brought together Family Medicine Manheim, lab, and physical therapy services in one conveniently located 12,400 sq. ft. outpatient facility.
Greenebaum partnered with Cornerstone Design-Architects and Warfel Construction to repurpose and transform the former car showroom-then-fitness-center into a welcoming, attractive one-story healthcare facility. To improve the building’s aesthetics, steel-framed post-and-beam bearing and shear elements replaced interior concrete block bearing walls. When unexpected deep earthen fill hampered foundation construction, drilled helical steel piers were required to support the front, barrel-vaulted translucent entry canopy.
Cornwall Manor, Freeman Hall Additions & Renovations
Greenebaum Structures partnered with Cornerstone Design-Architects on an extensive project that included 5,000 sq. ft. of additions and 16,000 sq. ft. of renovations to an existing two-story building. The additions involved two stories of administrative offices, a new elevator and internal stairs, extension of the salon and a new porte cochere.
We were involved in renovations to the gift shop, vestibule, reception area, offices and Board Room, as well as the retention of two existing light shafts and reconfiguration of an existing interior stair. Records of the existing building were incomplete and field surveying discovered early 20th century construction that had to be adapted to meet 21st century building codes. Construction, by Arthur Funk & Sons, had to be planned to allow continued occupancy of adjacent building spaces.
Chapel Pointe, Carlisle, PA
24,000 square feet of additions and 18,200 square feet of renovations to the buildings of Chapel Pointe at Carlisle, PA, repurposed many areas and provided connections between previously separate building on the Chapel Pointe campus. CMU foundations and first floor bearing walls support the two-story concrete and bar joist additions adjacent to the existing buildings while precast concrete plank was used to span over the existing adjacent building and provide additional second floor square footage. The second floor construction transitioned to light gauge steel exterior walls with a steel and bar joist roof.
Construction cost $6.7 million.
Yorktowne Medical Center, York, PA
This prototype medical office building/ambulatory surgical center is located just south of York City. Designed by Cornerstone Design Architects and built by Hogg Construction with structural design and analysis by Greenebaum Structures, the 125,000 SF building includes an MRI facility, a day surgery center and numerous medical practices. Although the entire building is steel-framed, the office floors are supported on steel joists and form deck, while the surgery floors are framed with composite steel beams and deck. Fire rating permitted pre-engineered timber roof trusses over the conventional office wing, but required light gauge trusses over the surgery center. Construction costs were approximately $10 million.
Philhaven’s Plain Communities Outpatient Clinic, Mt. Gretna, PA
Provides mental health care that is sensitive to the values of the area’s Plain community. Drawing on their specialized engineering expertise, Greenebaum Structures’ challenge was to retain the gently sloped landscape of the site and resolve wind shear through the shell of the timber-framed, two-story building.
Architectural design was provided by Beers & Hoffman.
Albright/Hildebrandt Daycare Facility, Lancaster, PA
The challenge of this project was to adapt an abandoned brick manufacturing plant into a two-story center for adult and child daycare. The high-bay shop was infilled with a second floor; an adjacent story was demolished to provide parking and site access; a multi-stop elevator was installed to meet the new floor levels; and the existing 19th century industrial features were incorporated into 21st century uses. Tippetts/Weaver Architects provided the design inspiration, Greenebaum Structures provided structural analysis and design, and Carroll Contractors crafted the adaptations. Historic tax credits ensured that the plant’s original character was maintained.
