Eye Center South in Dothan, Ala., is one of the largest medical
and surgical eye care clinics in the southeastern U.S. The clinic
specializes in pediatric eye care, diagnostic audiology and facial
rejuvenation and treats external eye diseases and movement
disorders, among other services. The clinic has expanded its
services during the past few years, and in 2008, Marnix Heersink,
M.D., Eye Center South's owner and cataract and laser refractive
surgeon, decided to add a surgery center to the clinic to better
accommodate its patients.
Heersink and his wife live in Holland part time and are
interested in Dutch architecture. Heersink wanted the surgery
center to implement as many Dutch architectural elements as
possible and the existing building updated to match the
Eye Center South hired Saliba Construction, Dothan, to build the
addition. Saliba Construction has a long history working with
Dothan-based Marty Robbins Roofing Co. Inc. and asked the company
to install a roof system on the surgery center and reroof the
existing building to match.
"We were asked to help the architect, Dothan-based J. Michael
Lee Architect, and design consultant, Willem Weulties from Zutphen,
Netherlands, figure out which metal roof system components could be
implemented; help design, build and implement the replica metal
effects for the project; and work with Saliba Construction to
include or adapt as many Dutch architectural features as possible,"
