KRA was retained by the REACH Community Health Centre in the fall of 2014 to undertake a design for a complete renovation of their existing space on Commercial Drive in Vancouver, BC. REACH has been in the facility for almost 50 years and has become an anchor in the community offering services such as Medical, Dental, Pharmacy, and a Multicultural Family Centre program.

The existing space was very outdated and they were bursting at the seams. Part of the project was an expansion of their program size, an update to the latest CSA design standards for health clinics, as well as addressing infection control, patient safety, and workplace standards.
