“The hospital garden also delivers a social return on investment by creating an accessible public space in the community.  The running paths in the nearby park lead up the stairs to the garden, bringing visitors to the site who may have no direct connection to the surgical platform below.  Staff are encouraged to take breaks in the shade of the garden, and patients are frequently seen outside experiencing nature just steps away from their rooms.”  

Ballinger and construction team, LF Driscoll and Robert Ganter Contractors Inc. worked closely with American Hydrotech and DuPont Performance Building Solutions to ensure the long-term watertight integrity and thermal performance of the underlying structure and to provide a blank canvas allowing the design team to achieve these creative complexities.
