Trout Architects has provided programming, design and construction documents for various maintenance improvement and renovation projects. Our work with VAMC-Boise over several years has provided us with valuable knowledge of the VAMC on-site utility grid system, administrative structure, working methodologies and drafting standards. We are familiar with the site and surrounding buildings including the overall campus material palette and design esthetic.
We have provided services for the following VA projects:
Radiation: add backup cooling for MRI unit, upgrade interior finishes in public and patient x-ray rooms and replan x-ray central processing core.
Physical Therapy: reconfigure interior spaces and design new addition for relocated physical therapy function, revise existing interior ducting and steam lines, tie new single ply roof system into existing building.
Physical Canteen: revise existing mechanical system for in-house VA constructed canteen remodel.
Dental Clinic: revise existing dental lab cabinetry and upgrade existing venting system to improve working conditions in an overheated and under ventilated dental laboratory.
