New building permits have been approved for the construction of a new health center at 3800 Florin Road in the Parkway neighborhood in Sacramento. The project will create a new home for the Sacramento Native American Health Center, a community-owned center run by Native Americans for the general public.
The 24-foot development will yield 38,000 square feet for new health care facilities. Two existing structures on site will be redesigned to accommodate a youth center and office space for the medical staff, while a third 12,700 square foot building is dedicated to dental care.
Dean F. Unger AIA is responsible for the design. The size and shape is constrained by the massing and scale standard for commercial structures along Florin Road. The structure will be made of painted concrete, with metal awnings and corrugated metal sidings. A raised metal panel will be included on the new building’s west elevation, representing the Sacramento Native American Health Center logo.
Construction is expected to cost $1.8 million. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
