Project Description: Overlooking the Silver Oak Golf Course in Carson City, NV, this 10,600 s.f., single story building envelope was constructed to withstand not only the natural forces influenced by the nearby Sierra Nevada Mountains, but the wayward golf ball flying in from the adjacent golf course. The exterior walls are constructed of Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) and finished with stone and cement plaster; windows exposed to the golf course were designed with impact resistant glass. Complementing the super insulated exterior walls is a roof structure filled with R-49 fiberglass insulation. Day lighting was an important design feature required by the Owners, resulting in insulated aluminum and glass skylights above each of the Owners’ respective suites.

The building’s Owners occupy two-thirds of the building from which they operate their respective Medical Practices, and the third suite, occupied by Reno based Nevada Retina Associates, serves as their Carson City satellite office. A shaded and protected patio with views of the Sierra Nevada and the golf course, is a great space for all staff to enjoy their coffee and/or lunch breaks on a warm day.
