Orthopedic Associates of Dutchess County

August 9, 2017

Chazen provided land survey, environmental, site engineering, landscape architecture and planning services for a new two-story, 12,000-square foot medical office building for Orthopedic Associates of Dutchess County (OADC). The project involved the redevelopment of a former restaurant property.

OADC and Chazen closely collaborated on program needs including space, employee and patient parking, water and sewer service, and the available construction budget. Chazen performed a feasibility study to identify potential constraints to site development, including wetlands, a high groundwater table hindering the septic disposal system function and drainage issues. Chazen assisted OADC in developing a compliant and economical approach to the environmental clean-up, which allowed funds to be reallocated to raising the site, resolving septic disposal and parking lot drainage issues. The revised site layout offers a handicap accessible facility, allowed redevelopment to take advantage of existing infrastructure while creating jobs in the community.
