Project Spotlight: Dermatology Associates of Lincoln
The Dermatology Associates of Lincoln, located at 6969 South Street in Lincoln, Nebraska, engaged Schemmer to design a new facility for their medical practice. The 10,000 SF, full-service dermatology medical clinic was a new build, replacing a prior location. The building boasts 16 exam rooms, all prepped for laser treatments, and two procedure rooms.
The client also challenged us to consider our rural Nebraska roots and we, as a team, introduced the concept of:
- energy optimization,
- energy savings and
The design borrows formal cues found on the family farm and simple rural structures. The final spatial arrangement capitalizes on:
- daylight balancing,
- modest use of glazing,
- efficient medical adjacencies for staff and providers, and
- allows for various types of medical delivery.
Additionally, the building is an energy producer, not the consumer. By installing low-energy-use LED lighting, daylight monitoring, and active photovoltaic panels to harness energy on-site, the building is close to net-zero.
Schemmer and our partner, SWT Energy, designed and installed 2,500 kilowatts of active solar panels on the south-facing roof. The 80 photovoltaic panels are rated for 110 mph and are the most efficient models found in the region. The active solar system is connected to the electrical grid and will provide net-metering for the client.
