Share Article

With the consistent overcrowding of the current pharmacy waiting room, and long lines in extreme temperatures outside that resulted because if it, Fort Sam Houston has added a new modular building (built by Icon Construction) to keep soldiers and their families free from the elements when waiting for long periods for their prescriptions to be filled.

New Pharmacy Waiting room

This project was completed nearly 3 months ahead of schedule

Icon Construction is pleased to announce the successful completion of a Modular Pharmacy Waiting Room. The need for the waiting room was discovered when long lines began to form in front of the existing pharmacy. The existing waiting room for the pharmacy was always filled to capacity which meant that long lines had to form outside of the building. Many men and women of our armed forces, along with their children, were waiting for sometimes hours outside in 110 degree temperatures while waiting for their prescriptions to be filled. The new 853 sq. ft. modular building is complete with air-conditioning, chairs, and televisions to keep patrons comfortable and entertained while they wait for their prescriptions to be filled. Icon provided the full turn-key design/build project through MEDCOM. The complete construction of this Pharmacy Waiting Room included delivery, set-up, fire alarm, fire sprinkler system to meet NFPA72, interior building communications, site and building water, fire water, sewer and electric, awnings, decks, steps and ramps, automatic door openers, and water barriers. The Icon team mobilized on August 27, 2011 and celebrated an early completion of the project to the customer’s satisfaction on October 7, 2011. This project was completed nearly 3 months ahead of schedule. An Icon Superintendent was present from Start to Finish.
