RX3 Compounding Pharmacy

Rx3, a family business, is Virginia’s first nationally accredited compounding pharmacy. The client wanted a clean, modern design with high ceilings, flexible retail display areas and gathering areas for community events and education. The design team planned the retail space to highlight a sweeping circular counter area for order placement and pickup. A linear ceiling tile incorporated lighting to create a non-traditional pharmacy setting and also provide acoustical control. Space planning and construction documentation services were provided as well as custom signage design and movable displays.

Unique Challenges

The project site is located in the oldest part of the hospital that dates back to the early 1900s. The building infrastructure and slab design made through floor penetrations and additional structural floor shoring for the high-density file storage a delicate and well-coordinated task.

Our Value Add

Bold floor patterns and splashes of color provide a functional and fun workplace. A combination of daylight and artificial light provides adequate and appropriate levels of illumination for performance of complex visual tasks. Access to natural light promotes staff performance and well-being.
