Structural difficulties included, meeting the architects needs of having a steel hipped roof system while also maintaining a low profile out at the eave. Smoothly and efficiently transitioning from the high hipped roof to the 15 degree angle low flat roof, all while having to support full height glazing system in the same area. The low roof also presented many challenges because in many areas the spandrel glass continued past the roof diaphragm. Lastly, there were many custom interior ceilings and exterior canopies that had to be integrated into the structure because of their lack of structural support and location in relation to main structural elements. read more »

CCMC - H. Marcus Radin Conference Center

The H. Marcus Radin Conference Center on the campus of Clovis Community Medical Center is not just a building, it’s a work of art.  Glass has been elegantly added around the structure to welcome the views from the surrounding area. Many portions of the building appear to be floating above glass which looks as if the basic laws of physics where overcome.  With large open spaces, and minimal room to work with, coordination between all team members was critical to achieve the final product. The H. Marcus Radin Conference Center is jam-packed with state of the art equipment for large conferences and presentations and will be the iconic structure for the Clovis Community campus. read more »

The most unique feature of the project is the radius-bent tube steel ribs that support the arching ceilings in the main entry and conference rooms.  The arched ceiling continues out to the exterior and becomes the exterior canopy - creating a continuous arch through the building.  To accommodate the arches, the roof framing was arched as well. read more »

CCMC - Two-Story Medical Office Buildings

With the increasing size and demand on Clovis Community Medical Centers, Henderson Architectural Group designed a Medical Office Building that would be replicated 2 times. As with many commercial properties, cost was at the forefront.  With the layout of the structure, our recommendation was to use a precast concrete system.  The floor and roof framing was divided into equal bays to further simplify the gravity framing of the structure. Two of the four corners of the structure where left open for a wall of glass to add to the architecture.  This required some creative structural detailing by Brooks Ransom so Henderson could achieve their outstanding architectural curb appeal. read more »

Phase I of this project included an existing structure remodel with heavy equipment change-outs, such as the removal of an MRI Unit and incorporation of a CT Scanner. Phase II consisted of the new wing addition and Phase III included the uniquely designed approach canopies. The entry canopy design presented an engineering challenge as the lower canopy hangs entirely from the upper canopy. read more »

This two story administration and lab facility is a single project in a long line of services our firm has provided to Valley Children's Hospital dating back to 1975.

Minimizing disruption to the hospital's daily activities was a high priority and timely responses were required at all levels of design and construction surveillance. read more »
