Design Approach/Narrative: This building houses the administration department for the multi-facility SDMI company, as well as providing tenant space for medical offices.

Steinberg Diagnostic Medical Imaging is an innovative and expanding medical imaging company. As the building owner, they decided to combine their administrative functions into this one location. By doing this they are freeing up space in their other facilities to add additional imaging functions. The remaining space in the building’s first floor is for medical related tenants. This type of space is needed in the medical corridor this building is located within.

The building owner is very design oriented. JMA was requested to go beyond the typical medical office and create a building that represents the type of technical advances that the medical industry is making today. The “MRI slice” that is made through the building is one detail that signifies this. The detailing that highlights the infusion of materials and forms was of great importance.

A decision to change contractors was made between design and the start of construction. This change brought about with it necessary construction budget revision that required revising certain exterior materials and landscape designs. The final building represents the result of the design team and contractor’s resolve to provide the owner with a building that met his expectations for design and construction quality.

The total building area was 32998 sf and materials used included metal panels, stone, FIFS and glass.
