Utah Orthopedics has announced completion of its medical office building recently. The medical office is situated in Ogden and Big-D Construction built it through the design-build delivery method along with GSBS Architects.
The clinic has an area of 30,000 sq ft and caters to administrative as well as medical functions and incorporates procedure and exam spaces and offices, casting rooms, a digital x-ray imaging suite and orthopedic device production space.
Our Building is LEED Platinum Certified and has received the Utah Green Business Award
A number of eco-friendly features are incorporated such as a variable refrigerant flow system (HVAC equipment), solar hot water, a photovoltaic electrical system, high-efficiency lighting, as well as a building envelope that has a high-performance orientation and potent daylighting policies. All these features will permit the building to surpass the federal energy efficiency standards by almost 30%.
Utah Orthopaedics was in recent times acknowledged by Utah Business Magazine for its amazing work in ecological conservation during the annual Green Business Awards of the publication for their sustainable efforts that they had introduced in their latest facility. A ceremony was held in November and Dann Byck, MD, and Jeffrey Rocco, MD, proprietors of Utah Orthopaedics received the award in the “Workplace Initiatives” group.
Drs. Byck and Rocco said that they were privileged to receive the award and elucidated in their acceptance speech that the building and their eco-friendly practices were a part of a dream that they had envisioned for many years. Green practices are an integral part of Utah Orthopaedics right from its LEED Platinum building to its internal culture.
Apart from the company’s internal efforts to be green, Utah Orthopaedics endeavors to widen environmental awareness all through the neighborhood.
