The back of house areas included exam rooms with custom millwork and brass hardware accents throughout. The light and airy aesthetic continued into the restrooms, where we installed glazed and patterned tiles to create the ultimate spa environment.

Ascension Connect Pharmacy is a first-generation, interior finish-out of 28,800 square feet to create a robust mail-order pharmacy and distribution center, along with offices, conference rooms, break room, walk-in refrigeration with ultra-low temperatures, equipment, and other support space. Extensive mechanical, electrical, and plumbing improvements were made to ensure strict control of the interior environment, as well as backup service in case of power outages. Multiple levels of security for the space include bulletproof glass, bulletproof walls, interior and exterior cameras, and multi-access capable badge readers for the interior doors.

In addition to typical interior finishes, the project also includes exterior building improvements to the existing spandrel glass to provide better insulation of the space, a new exterior dock and ramps to serve truck arrivals and departures, and new mechanical equipment platform and screen on the roof.

Due to large elevation changes on the south and east side of the building, a large retaining wall was designed to account for the drop in elevation. Additional site work includes an asphalt parking lot with concrete curbs and landscaping.

Westlake Dermatology, Dripping Springs

Sabre’s latest project for Westlake Dermatology is a lush first-generation finish out at Belterra Village in Dripping Springs. This luxury dermatology office with multiple custom finishes, designed by the Michael Hsu Office of Architecture, marks the third project Sabre has completed for the dermatological clinic, in addition to their North Lamar office and a research facility on Bee Caves Road.

The 2,800 square foot renovation incorporates smooth, curved Venetian plaster walls that frame the reception area, crafted by specialty contractors whose scope spanned the ceilings and walls in the lobbies and corridors. The resulting work product gives the clinic soft, rounded curves that provide a sumptuous canvas for the high-end finishes that give it a spa-like feel. Other special features included the reception desk, Italian tile in the bathrooms, wooden paneling, doors, fixtures, and the terrazzo flooring. Elegant, hanging light fixtures illuminate the beautiful office with lighting controls that program the entire suite. The reception desk is one piece, bronze metal with a stone façade.

The completed medical office is a gem of a space that will serve Westlake Dermatology clients in the Dripping Springs region for years to come.
