Modern Facility for Ancient Healing Arts

Chi Institute Expansion

This new building of approximately 15,000 square feet constructed of a pre-engineered metal building that is divided into 3 sections by two 2-hour rated firewalls. The exterior envelope is comprised of cold formed metal channels with Densglass sheathing and a combination of brick veneer and painted stucco finish, as well as aluminum storefront glazing systems and a Nanawall assembly that allows the entire middle section of the building to be opened completely to the outdoors. The roofing system is a combination of standing seam metal and a fibertite single-ply membrane system. New spaces include a 3,000 square foot tiered classroom, multi-functional library and museum space, clinic and lab space for 100 students, catering kitchen, and a deck.
