To modernize an existing 1965 dental clinic that was technologically outdated and not code compliant.


The updated design-build solution completely modernizes the 1965 A-wing by replacing the roof system, replacing all windows, installing an air barrier and open cell spray foam insulation at the exterior walls, and installing an air barrier at the floor and walls of the crawl space to create an energy-efficient, code compliant building envelope.

Roll Dental Clinic is a comprehensive facility renewal for military members permanently assigned to Fort Leonard Wood. The existing building is comprised of A-wing, which was constructed in 1965, and B and C-wings, which were constructed circa 2000. The project scope includes complete interior and extensive exterior renovation of the A-wing, a new 2,060 square foot mechanical addition, a new 500 square foot fully enclosed connector to link A, B and C-wings, a new public entry canopy, and sitework to accommodate anti-terrorism/force protection and accessibility requirements.

The interior of A-wing was completely gutted and renovated to create a functionally efficient, modern dental clinic. Occupied spaces are located along exterior walls to maximize daylighting and views to the exterior; interior dental treatment rooms and dental lab spaces have daylighting devices to improve the quality of the environments. Special attention was given to acoustical privacy in occupied/sensitive spaces, with upgraded wall types, noise reducing acoustical ceiling tile, and electronic sound masking. All new energy-efficient mechanical/electrical/plumbing (MEP) systems were installed to serve the renovated wing. New fire protection and low voltage systems tie into or replace existing systems.

The A-wing renovation includes 16 dental treatment rooms, two prosthodontic dental treatment rooms, two endodontic dental treatment rooms, dental imaging, a dental lab, and administrative, staff and support spaces, plus segregated administrative space to accommodate staff.
