Red Bank/White Knoll (Paul Kirby) – The Lexington Medical Center system has just completed an expansion of their family practice building in the White Knoll area. As the community around that practice has grown over the years, the demand for the family medical services that they’ve provided has also increased. According to Deidra Livingston, a spokesperson for Lexington Health, it had become difficult to schedule suddenly sick patients due to the heavy demand and the practice was unable to accept new patients for the same reason.
During the construction, 2,981 square foot of new space was added to the building. This included another hall with exam rooms. That was added to accommodate the hiring of Dr. Savia, who was brought on board last year. The practice has also reconfigured the front desks, the check-out area, the clerical offices, and the lab space.
Even though the footprint of the building is larger, they were able to maintain the same amount of parking on site. They now have space for a dedicated Coumadin Clinic, mobile ultrasound,and mobile echocardiogram areas. While all this was going on, they also replaced all seven heating and air units and added two additional ones. The new units are more energy efficient, which saves money in the long run.
The expansion was done by Lucas Built Construction of West Columbia. They have a great deal of experience in building and remodeling medical practices, as well as high quality homes and other commercial spaces. According to their website, Lucas Built was founded in 1985 by Charlie Lucas, a 3rd generation contractor who has over 40 years of experience in the building industry. His sons Chase and Kyle Lucas are now working in the business. They are the 4th generation of Lucas builders following in their father’s footsteps. The project was officially finished on August 7, 2017.
