Port Orford Coast Community Health Center
Port Orford, OR
The Port Orford Coast Community Health Center was designed and built to provide medical services to the Port Orford, OR area. The campus features two buildings totaling 5652 square feet. The first building is a single-story, 1120 square foot facility while the larger building totals 4532 square feet with a beautiful fifteen-foot vaulted ceiling entryway. The aesthetic took several challenges into account: apart from resisting a corrosive coastal climate, the Health Center needed to stand out while still matching the rest of the community. The colors and design make it very noticeable while maintaining the area’s coastal charm.
Building the modules at Modern’s plant and shipping them to the campus helped to circumvent the weather delays that usually impact coastal construction sites; this greatly reduced time and cost, keeping the Port Orford Coast Community Health Center on schedule and on budget.
- Construction only took five months to complete, from November 2021 to March 2022.
- Local cedar was used to trim out the vaulted entryway of the primary building, adding both natural beauty and Port Oxford’s personal touch.
- Sub-contractors designed a unique flooring pattern that also made use of local timber.
- The exterior design features two opposing shed-style roofs and smooth, Hardi panel board and battens.
- A total of seven modules were used to construct the community center, seven for the large building and two for the smaller one.
- Designing access to the building’s infrastructure made the Health Center more owner friendly for future maintenance.
- The use of local timber cut down on transport pollution and cost.
- A two-part truss greatly increases insulation value, cutting down on energy use throughout the changing seasons.
- The overall life-span of the building was greatly increased by having all parts preassembled in one of Modern’s dry, climate-controlled plants.
