Rocky Vista Medical University – Utah
To support RVU’s mission to provide Southern Utah with exceptional
learning experiences BCER provided mechanical, electrical, and
plumbing consulting services for the new Medical School Classroom and
Laboratory building. Construction began on this design-build project in
March of 2016 with a completion of summer 2017.
This two-level, 107,000 sf, $24,000,000 teaching facility includes
Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) labs, research labs, anatomy
labs, anatomy/cadaver preparation labs, cadaver storage, classrooms,
lecture auditoriums, offices, lounges, a library, loading dock/receiving
area, and locker rooms.
This facility is heated and cooled with rooftop units including a makeup
unit equipped with heat recovery to minimize utility costs. A gas
fired generator has been provided to maintain power to mission critical
equipment/spaces during loss of commercial power. The facility is
illuminated with LED lights to offer light color, control, and operating
costs that match RVU’s leading edge program.
