Central District Health Department

After 25 years of use, Central District Health Department's Boise Office needed updating. The original building design reflected a silo approach to delivering client care which was in contrast to the current vision of the agency.  The Design Team was tasked with reprogramming the facility to align with a more integrated client care model bringing all divisions under Preventive Health Services together.

The resultant design includes renovation of 24,000 SF inclusive of clinic, office and community resource space.

Gala Orthopaedic Clinic

Pivot North was selected to provide planning and architectural design services to renovate an existing occupied medical office building from a dental clinic to its new life as an orthopaedic surgeon’s clinic. The renovation involved demolition to the exterior studs and assessing patient and staff flow for improved clinical efficiency and patient comfort. The clinic is zoned for shared occupancy by two independent providers, but flexible to allow sharing of exam rooms on busy clinic days.

The 4,000 SF project incorporates 9 expanded exam rooms, x-ray, procedure room, staff break room, shared staff workroom, two provider offices and expanded reception. Interior finishes include locally sourced recycled wood cladding, industrial steel accents, backlit feature signs and a natural color palette.

St. Luke's Downtown Campus Master Plan

In 2009, St. Luke's Health System embarked in a masterplanning effort to align the needs of the healthcare organization's flagship campus with it's patient care delivery model.

Currently in design, the approximately million square foot, multi-phase, eight year urban plan will modernize the existing facility, add needed medical office space, add state of the art surgical capacity and provide modern inpatient bed capacity to carry the facility beyond 2030.

St. Luke's Fruitland

The 90,000 SF building consists of a standalone emergency department, physician clinics, conference and education spaces, and an imaging suite. The building is the first phase of a master planned development which will eventually become a full service hospital with cancer treatment capabilities and inpatient beds.

The building envelope design consists of a highly efficient balloon framed wall system with St. Luke’s signature blended brick, sandstone and stucco accents, and high performance window system. Liquid applied air barriers and continuous insulation system enhance energy efficiency and patient comfort.
