Tips for Designing the Ultimate Medical Office Building

Making Your Healthcare Building High Quality and Functional

When it comes to medical construction, one of the best things you can do is work with a designer who understands how to combine aesthetically pleasing and functional.

Medical offices should be comfortable, safe, and accommodating for patients, including everything they need and extras only when they add value to the patient experience or to employees.

To get the best medical office, work with your designer closely to plan for sufficient seating, restrooms, and more. Also, don’t forget the value of natural light and site selection. The location you choose for your healthcare facility is almost as important as the overall design and construction.

What to Consider for Your Medical Office Building Design

Essentials for Your Healthcare Facility

Here are some things to think about and questions to ask your healthcare construction contractor during the build-out:

  • Patient Privacy: How can we promote the best patient comfort?
  • Seating Options: What types of seats are necessary? How many seats will you need?
  • Size of Waiting Room and Examination Rooms: Do you have enough room for patients to bring additional members of their families if needed?
  • Natural Lighting: Is there enough light coming in from the outside?
  • Location: Are you located in a high-traffic area?


The Norwest DesignLab™ is the only place on the West Coast where healthcare and business professionals, designers and architects can see, feel and touch the wide range of commercial interior materials and fixtures available for your project.
