PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The University of Nebraska Medical Center Stanley M. Truhlsen Eye Institute is a world-class facility that integrates clinicians, researchers, and patients into one state-of-the-art facility. Patients are served with the latest specialized care techniques and diagnostic medicine in the Eye Institute. Program areas include out-patient eye exam facilities for all ophthalmic sub-specialties, a children’s eye care center, clinic research, and a regional diagnostic center.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

  • LEED Certified with an emphasis on the integration of architectural design and energy modeling.
  • The facility infrastructure is designed to accommodate a surgical addition that will be added when funding is available.
  • The facility has one of the few true atriums inside the facility. A smoke management system was designed for the atrium.
  • The diversity of spaces and occupancies in the building required different MEP design strategies and systems to ensure that each program space was optimized from a comfort and functional standpoint.
