Twin Cities Orthopedics (TCO) built a premier physical therapy and sports performance center in Waconia, MN as a destination for physical rehabilitation and athletic performance enhancement in the west metro. The building was designed to enhance patient and family experience with a large central traditional treatment area surrounded by private treatment rooms to a therapy pool for recovery and training as well as an interior turf field for athletic training. The clinic also features a small fitness studio, a gym space with turf and basketball surfaces, a weight room with rubber flooring, medical office space, a conference room with a movable glass wall and an underwater treadmill. The design team worked hard to ensure that the facility was built to meet TCO’s standards of providing the highest quality of care and a patient-centered team approach.
Wells produced and installed the building enclosure which is constructed from architectural insulated and structural wall load bearing concrete panels. The architectural façade showcases a mix of stone look form liner, cast in thin brick and acid etch features wall panels with varying levels of projecting surfaces, paired with structural panels that are covered in metal to give a very stylish and unique look to the building.
