SchenkelShultz Architecture designed the newly-opened Dr. Phillips Charities headquarters building, a sustainable Mediterranean-styled facility located at 7400 Dr. Phillips Boulevard in the southwest Orlando community that bears its name – Dr. Phillips, Fla.
Designed to achieve LEED Certification from the USGBC, the 20,000-sf facility houses The Dr. P. Phillips Foundation and Dr. Phillips, Inc., the two distinct funding organizations that comprise Dr. Phillips Charities.
The Dr. Phillips name has held a major economic and philanthropic presence in Central Florida since the turn of the 20th century. As stewards of the Dr. P. Phillips family holdings, Dr. Phillips Charities honors their legacy by supporting Central Florida nonprofits and charitable organizations directly impacting the lives of thousands of children and families annually.
According to J. Thomas Chandler, AIA, President and COO of SchenkelShultz, the building incorporates sustainable architectural features, environmentally friendly building products, energy-efficient systems, and environmentally-sensitive construction practices. Designed to provide an understated elegance symbolic of the Dr. Phillips heritage, the facility replaces the prior headquarters building that had been located in downtown Orlando for over 100 years.
Brasfield & Gorrie served as the general contractor for the project. BD+C
