We have three exciting stories in this month’s edition of flaSH [PDF]. One project is nearing completion while another is getting started and a member of our team spoke with Tony Illia at Las Vegas Business Press regarding ‘pencil-ready’ projects.
Englestad Health Sciences at CSN
The new 2 story, 18,000 SF addition to the Englestad Allied Health Sciences Building at CSN is progressing towards its summer 2010 completion. The fast-tracked project is designed for specialized training in pulmonary, respiratory and polysom sciences and includes 5 multi- purpose classrooms, two specialty labs, Polysom lab, Sim rooms, debriefing rooms, 28 faculty offices and work rooms. The building is being delivered through a CMAR process with Core Construction as the general contractor. SHArchitecture worked closely with CSN’s staff and directors to provide programing, building design, interior design and equipment and technology coordination for the state of the art facility. The addition is designed to blend seamlessly with the existing building.
Eric Roberts In the News
“Southern Nevada — long defined by boom growth — once proudly boasted of its billion-dollar developments built at breakneck speed. They were monumental-sized undertakings that added thousands of new jobs and new residents in the process. But things have changed. Last year’s economic downturn has crippled local resort and entertainment development activity causing projects to be canceled, delayed or deferred.”
Ruby Duncan Elementary School for CCSD
Construction is out of the ground for the new 2 story Ruby Duncan Elementary School in North Las Vegas. The 2 story school, designed by SHArchitecture, saves over 2 acres of land compared to conventional single story layouts. The LEED Silver equivalent facility is designed to use half the energy budget of the previous schools while costing 1/3 less than previous facilities. The school is scheduled to be open for the 2010 school year.
