Cohn Construction Services, a full- service design/build construction firm, hosted the official groundbreaking of the new Fields Health Clinic at its future site next to Dunbar Funeral Home on Devine Street at 5 p.m. Wednesday, September 7, 2011.

Dr. James Fields welcomed the crowd of 40 plus people in attendance and explained the history of Fields Chiropractic Clinic and how they have achieved success. Key players in the project such as Dr. Sander Fields, Dr. James Fields, Dr. Andrew Fields, Keith Phillips, Rick Cohn, and Harris Cohn took the shovels and hard hats and broke ground on their new building site. Additional contributors for the project such as Drew Painter from First Community Bank and Eric Huffstetler from LTC Architects were also there to celebrate in the monumental day.

Cohn Construction Services, LLC, was hired by Fields Health Clinic to facilitate the entire process of designing and building their new health clinic. The firm conceptualized, envisioned and strategized the overall design for the facility while working closely with Fields Health Clinic officials to ensure the overall facility conformed to specific aesthetic, technical, and functional expectations and requirements. Collaborating with local architecture and engineering firms (to program certain design aspects) their team conceived an integrated master plan seen through to project completion.

“ We thought this groundbreaking celebration would be a great way to build anticipation around the arrival of Fields Health Clinic’s new building on Devine Street,” said Cohn Construction President Harris Cohn, “We are very pleased to be part of the Fields family’s exciting business expansion, and we look forward to beginning work on this new project.”

Cohn Construction Services is scheduled to complete the new project in January, 2012. The single level medical clinic will provide general medical exams and treatment, chiropractic exams, therapy, and x-ray services.

The new location will feature more spacious procedure rooms and nicely appointed patient and staff areas. An environmentally conscious design has been incorporated into this facility, utilizing innovative and efficient products which include energy conserving HVAC and lighting control systems, high efficiency windows, and an increased insulation package.

The exterior will be aesthetically pleasing having a combination of brick and stone veneer with stucco accents.
