UMass Medical School Ambulatory Care Center

NV5 provided MEP/FP engineering for the design/build construction of a new ambulatory care center at UMass Medical Center.

The 258,000 SF, nine-story facility collocates advanced medical education, clinical research, and ambulatory patient care programs in one building. These three program elements provide the environment necessary for the integration of clinical research, medical education, and translation of those efforts into the most advanced practices in patient care. Among other programs is the new Center for Experiential Learning and Simulation, one of the most advanced simulation centers in the world. Building systems were designed with flexibility to support rapidly-evolving medical systems technology and clinical practices. The facility includes advanced educational training facilities, ambulatory care facilities, and student training areas within the ambulatory clinic setting, faculty and physician offices, and clinical research space.

The project earned LEED Silver certification as a result of water use being nearly 30% less than a conventional building, and automatic low-flow/low-flush plumbing fixtures. Electricity consumption is reduced by sophisticated controls for heating, cooling, and lighting.
