Completed in October of 2017, the East Lyme dental office building located at 156 Boston Post Road was designed for two separate existing practices and was met with its fair share of challenges. Both the orthodontic, Kozlowski Orthodontics, and pediatric dental, Children's Dental Associates, practices committed to relocate their practices to a more centralized location within the town and formed a business partnership to construct the building. The new site has proximity to the high school and middle school and has more visibility in general. The 9,000 sf building is divided equally. The site configuration had limitations as to how to place the new building on the site based on the town's requirements and the concern for the traffic exiting onto an already busy Boston Post Road. We were also met with the challenge of being the first new commercial structure within the recently approved Gateway Planned Development District. Specifics related to the GPDD and an expedited schedule are discussed in this recent blog article. We were hired by the construction management firm, Colliers International, who represented the two practices during both the design and construction process.
