Northeast OB/GYN Associates
5000 Schertz Parkway Suite 100
Schertz, TX 78154
The medical offices for Northeast OB/GYN Associates were designed and constructed for a physicians group to replace an older office location in a medical office building. The new facility is located at 5000 Schertz Parkway in Schertz Texas in a medical office development called the Schertz Parkway Plaza. The development will eventually have 8 medical office buildings when complete. The site is a seven acre tract on the Northeast side of San Antonio near the intersection of IH35 and Schertz Parkway. The developer for the project is Schertz Parkway Ventures and the general contractor is Sage Development.
The building is a single story 10,000 s.f. facility that houses offices for up to 8 physicians. Stephen J. Kramer Architecture + Design, Inc. provided full architectural services including master planning for the overall development and building design, interior layout and interior design including material, color, art and furniture selection. The building interior includes a large patient waiting area that can accomodate approximately 50 people. There is a separate reception and check out area. Each doctor operates within a ‘pod’ that has an office, nurses station, doctor’s work area and 3 exam rooms. In addition there is a lab, consult room, procedure rooms, administrative offices, break room, and other associated support areas.
The site has a large number of mature oak trees that were preserved during the planning phase of the project and that complement the ‘native’ landscaping of the site. In spite of this we were able to provide adequate parking at more then 5 spaces per 1000 s.f. of buildling area.
The building exterior is a modern interpretation of a Texas vernacular architecture using heavy tapered limestone columns, with limestone and stucco walls, heavy timber accents and a standing seam metal roof. The building will have solar panels on the rear surface of the roof that will generate a substantial portion of the power requirement for the Owner.
