Project Description

Utah Orthopaedics already knows a lot about getting patients on their feet: the group practice of fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons provides complete musculoskeletal care, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and on-site physical therapy. They provide services that range from basic to difficult, hard-to-treat orthopedic procedures. When they partnered with Big-D and GSBS Architects to build their new clinic, they took a step in a new direction.

The Utah Sports Medicine & Orthopaedics Center, the new home of Utah Orthopaedics, is a two-story, 30,000 square-foot clinic that serves medical and administrative functions. The facility includes a digital x-ray imaging suite, orthopedic device production space, casting rooms, procedure and exam spaces, and offices.

The project, which originally sought LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), received LEED Platinum, making it the first medical office building in the Rocky Mountain West to achieve USGBC’s highest certification available. The facility incorporates sustainable elements such as high-efficiency lighting, a photovoltaic electrical system, HVAC equipment that uses a variable refrigerant flow system, solar hot water, a high-performance building envelope, and effective daylighting strategies. All of these features allow the building to exceed federal energy efficiency standards by nearly 30 percent.
