Bowdoin Completes NECO Center for Eye Care for New England College of Optometry
Bowdoin recently completed a 4,700 SF build-out for the New England College of Optometry (NECO) to create the newly designed state-of-the-art NECO Center for Eye Care. Formerly known as New England Eye, this comprehensive clinic is dedicated to protecting, preserving and maximizing vision and eye health through expertise and compassionate care.
The patient care and optical dispensary, designed by Cube 3 Architects, feature fully-equipped patient examination rooms and testing areas, set up to diagnosis visual and health problems, and develop optimum treatment plans, whether they be as conventional as fitting a new pair of glasses, or as impactful as providing low vision rehabilitation services. NECO’s new retail optical space offers a wide selection of frames tailored for lifestyle, work, sports and fashion. Bowdoin “rounded” out these core service areas with office space and waiting rooms, adding custom millwork and updated glass, carpet, tile, lighting and HVAC systems.
Bowdoin is now focusing on the second phase of NECO’s clinical campus, which co-locates the related activities of clinical research and student pre-clinical training in a facility designed to enable students to understand new models of eye care delivery that are transforming clinical operations and patient care.
