February 2, 2021
Lee Health―Coconut Point is a $140 million medical campus featuring a 24-hour emergency room, surgery center, imaging services, and advanced rehabilitation technology. Located in Lee County’s village of Estero, the 163,500-square-foot medical facility is situated on a sprawling 33-acre site and houses multiple specialty practices to provide care for the South Lee County community.
Lee Health turned to Flad Architects because they are known to create environments that enhance human potential, say company officials. Flad architects consulted with HDI Railings to specify and install a railing system that would support their design intentions. Glasshape were honored to team up with HDI Railing Systems on this project, providing HDI Railings with the bent, toughened and laminated low-iron glass, to help highlight the building’s open and elegant aesthetic.
From the spiral staircase, HDI Railings, Kubit Railing System is installed along the second story openings which overlook the lower atrium area. The low-iron glass infill allows natural light to pass through with remarkable clarity creating a space that feels bright and boundless.
Lee Health’s multispecialty facility is set to exceed 30,000 Emergency Room visitors per year. According to the company, HDI Railing’s Kubit system combined with Glasshapes signature TemperShield bent, toughened and laminated glass will provide superb holding power and safety for the heavy foot traffic from E.R visitors and the 200 plus Lee Health medical staff for a long time to come.
