Mitsubishi Plastics Composites America Inc. supplied 1,830 square feet of its ALPOLIC metal composite material wall panels in White and 1,385 square feet in Walnut Timber for the project, which was completed in September 2015. Domokur Architects specified the faux wood grain as a nod to a barn that once stood on-site. The White panels were installed at the public drop-off, reception and waiting areas.

The 24,000-square-foot, shared-suite medical office building centralized Northern Ohio Medical Specialists' services. It houses seven group practices in 1,500-square-foot to 5,000-square-foot suites and a diagnostics suite. The suites share a lobby and reception area with centralized clinical nurse stations.
