Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas

Project Features

  • Sustainable doors were preferred to help contribute credit toward LEED certification.
  • The high-traffic corridors required doors with enhanced durability and scuff resistance.
  • Doors with various extended fire ratings were required to meet code inside the hospital.

Project Overview:

Dell Children’s Hospital of Central Texas is located in Austin, Texas, and serves a 46-county area. The $200 million, 473,000-square-foot hospital is described as a “high-tech, high-touch” facility. It was designed to create a warm and positive healing environment for patients coping with critical illnesses.

Building Challenge:

Dell Children’s Hospital was designed to be the first hospital to receive LEED® Platinum Certification (the highest achievable). The hospital needed a door solution that would provide environmentally friendly attributes, in addition to the enhanced performance  required in healthcare applications.

VT’s Contribution:

VT Industries supplied in excess of 1,000 plain sliced white maple flush wood veneer doors for the hospital. All of the doors were slip- and balance-matched and had a clear finish.
