Vixen Aesthetics

Project Challenge

The new space is twice the previous size, due to budget constraints the project had to be cost-conscious with the layout, materials, and system improvements. The landlord proposed replacing the heating/ ventilating system with residential- type furnaces which was not economical or energy efficient. With creative planning, the HVAC system was replaced as engineered and reused much of the existing duct work.

Previously occupied by a Wedding Dress Boutique, the space was completely transformed into a spa-like retreat specializing in cosmetic enhancements such as Botox, Laser Treatments, Cool Sculpting, etc. Needing to increase its floor space due to increased demand and added offerings, Vixen Aesthetics decided to relocate approximately two miles north of its previous location.

The remodeling included a reception and lobby area, consultation room, several patient rooms, offices, breakroom, and restrooms. All new mechanical and electrical systems were introduced, making the space energy efficient. This new location and building will serve their clients for years into the future.
