Progress: Waiting Pavilion of the NorthBay Medical Center

Belinda attended a job site walk with our Jr. Designer Kao and the DPR team at the new Waiting Pavilion of the NorthBay Medical Center in Fairfield, CA as it nears completion. This was Kao's first time on a job site and as they reviewed the space for quality and progress, she made a statement in her bright pink hard hat. The stone pebble border along the perimeter walls and the inset 3-Form material in the feature wall (pictured above) are just a few design details accenting the space.

UCLA Semel Institute Sneak Peek!

Pickett Design Associates’ talented Interior Designer Stephanie Ramirez was at the UCLA Semel Institute recently to preview the team’s finished work on its Integrative Phenotyping Center for Neuropsychiatry. The renovation involved more than 40,000 square feet on four floors of the Semel Institute tower, and the state-of-the-art space will provide modern facilities for investigators to achieve breakthroughs in the understanding, prevention, and treatment of severe brain disorders. PDA partnered with Zakian Woo Architects and other project consultants to create a flowing, light-filled – yet highly functional – interior workspace. In the photo above Stephanie is posing next to an impactful oversized custom sliding door of rich wood grain. We’ll post more photos of this exciting project soon!

Construction is Challenging!

UCLA is on the move renovating existing space on three levels of the Clinical Research Wing in the Center for the Health Sciences building. This renovation will ultimately support the expansion of telemedicine activities, improve patient access to healthcare and support expanded medical school enrollments for Programs in Medical Education. 

Linda Conley meets with the Architect and General Contractors and then walks the job site. 

This project includes PRIME administrative offices, and telepathology consultation and laboratory support services space in the CHS.  Telepathology is the practice of pathology at a distance. It uses telecommunications technology to facilitate the transfer of image-rich pathology data between distant locations for the purposes of diagnosis, education, and research. The telepathology component will improve clinical care by giving patients from underserved locations throughout Southern California access to specialized consultation and diagnostic services at UCLA.
