Heavy equipment completing demolition at the new AIDS Arms clinic on Sunset Avenue in Oak Cliff.

Construction on AIDS Arms’ new Oak Cliff clinic on Sunset Street is progressing on schedule.

AIDS Arms Executive Director Raeline Nobles reports that all demolition is complete with plumbing now being installed in the foundation of the building.

“In addition, the new HVAC system is being put into place,” Nobles said. “Wall materials have begun to be delivered as well.”

The new facility on Sunset Avenue should open for clients by the fall. The building formerly housed the administrative and social services offices of AIDS Arms. Those have moved to 351 Jefferson Blvd., Suite 300.

The new clinic will compliment the agency’s Peabody Clinic in South Dallas. A full-service pharmacy, laboratory, diagnostic and exam rooms and an HIV research center will all be part of the new facility.

Other support services that are offered by AIDS Arms and other agencies will be provided in a community resource center at the clinic.

Construction began May 4 after a sledgehammer party to begin tearing down the old walls of the facility.
