185,000 sq. ft.
Scope of Work:
Sheet Metal and Plumbing Detailing
Type of Project:
BIM Designs, Inc. was responsible for detailing and coordination services, design drawings, and a bill of materials that meet or exceed the requirements of our client.
Phase one of the project includes a new building totaling 200,000 square feet and eventually will house nearly 800 Creighton health sciences students in Arizona, the university says. The expansion will include a four-year medical school, nursing school, occupational and physical therapy schools, pharmacy school, physician assistant school and emergency medical services program. A second building adjacent to the first may be added in the future.
This will increase Creighton’s presence in Phoenix, giving students in its health sciences programs more training opportunities. Dale Davenport, senior associate dean of the Creighton School of Medicine, says Arizona does not have enough primary care physicians and general surgeons to serve a large, growing population, including an increasing elderly population. And he says that Creighton’s two largest hospital and clinical partners in the Phoenix area — Dignity Health’s St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, and Maricopa Integrated Health System — asked Creighton to expand its Phoenix programs.
