San Antonio Military Medical Center, Hyperbaric Facility Addition

Fort Sam Houston, Texas

As a part of an integrated Design-Build-Initial-Outfitting (i-DBIO) team, LEO A DALY provided architecture, engineering, and interior design services. The greatest challenge was designing the building to accommodate the multi-person hyperbaric chamber, as well as include a second chamber to support additional research. The project also included the coordination of all furniture and artwork once the building was constructed. The project was completed, as scheduled, the summer 2016.

The project was designed to LEED Silver design standards and includes multiple sustainable design features. An expanse of curtain wall floods the main treatment space with screened light; natural light also is allowed into the second level mechanical spaces to reduce the reliance on artificial light.

The exterior architecture takes its visual aesthetic from the surrounding campus incorporating terra-cotta panels, copper-tone brick, blue-gray glazing, and “baguette” sun screen elements.
