project description

This project was a substantial renovation of building 25 of Magnuson Park.  The remodel houses clinical services for the University Of Washington School Of Dentistry- Pediatric Dental Program which anticipated serving 30,000 patients in the first year of operation.  The facility is equipped with 31 dental exam chairs and three operating rooms.  The historical building consists of a basement, two floor levels, and a smaller 3rd floor area which houses offices and administrative areas.  Although the building is outfitted with state-of-the-art mechanical and electrical systems, careful attention has been taken to preserve the historical integrity of the exterior appearance of the building.
