Texas EMS Facility Renovation Transforms Patient and Staff Experience
Since 1984, the Kendall County EMS facility in Texas has provided emergency medical care to the region’s 40,000 residents. However, the original building was outdated and lacked the space to handle the community’s needs. With the help of Fypon’s products, the community now takes pride in the revitalized building and its fresh exterior.
After nearly complete demolition of the original building and two years of construction, the new EMS facility has completely transformed both its interior and exterior design. The entryway now displays Fypon’s new 8’ PremiumSelect Square Flat Panel column wraps to welcome patients. The column wraps sit atop a stately stone base and feature a traditional cap and base. The sleek dark brown column wraps add a polished touch that creates a nice balance when paired with the building’s rough stone façade.
Lorraine M. Dailey of LMD Architects, who designed the new facility, was interested in Fypon’s column wraps not only for their streamlined style, but also for their dependable durability. “The column wraps allowed us to achieve the look desired. Also, the flexible materials are durable in exterior application,” she explained.
Additionally, Fypon’s column wraps offered a low-maintenance option for the busy EMS team. The PVC material of Fypon’s column wraps stands up against harsh weather without cracking or warping, remaining polished and fresh with minimal upkeep. This low-maintenance option allows the Kendall County EMS department to spend more time providing care for their community.
For general contractor M.J. Boyle, Fypon’s column wraps were an entirely new and unfamiliar product. Despite the lack of experience with using Fypon’s products, project superintendent Jody Mokry said they felt confident installing the column wraps.
“In my opinion, the best part was the customer service,” Mokry shared. “We were able to send the plans to the Fypon representatives and they checked quantities and provided the shop drawings and submittals. Fypon’s easy installation process and helpful support team ensured smooth, efficient installation.”
