Renovation 25,000 sf
Like many ophthalmology practices, Maine Eye Center has experienced growth as the population ages. To accommodate the growth, they decided to relocate and expand both the surgery center and the retina practice to a new facility, freeing up space to expand the other parts of the practice. They explored both new building and renovation options and chose a two story, 25,000-sf renovation.
The design places the surgery center on the first floor and the retina practice on the second. Each floor has its own check in and waiting. The surgical center includes five operating rooms, a Lasik surgical suite, pre-op and post-op areas, and other support spaces. The retinal floor includes exam rooms, offices, staff areas, and other support spaces.
Maine Eye Center’s design process paralleled a gastroenterology practice fit-up on the building’s remaining two floors. The opportunity of sharing common services and spaces was explored, with the design of each practice incorporating common elements.
