UCR School of Medicine
This quarter's #FeaturedProject is local to Riverside and is our second project working with Kitchell.
We are completing the electrical, fire, data, and security of the
entire first floor of the School of Medicine Research Building at
University California, Riverside. Mike McMullen Estimated the project and handed it over to our Project Manager, Troy Reeves. Together with Foreman Rick Glancy and his 3 man crew, they are working hard to finish this project before Fall of this year.
One of the biggest challenges with this project is that this is an
existing building, with existing utilities that has had to stay
operational and in place throughout the construction process. This
requires a lot of planning to route all of the new utilities around the
existing. BIM (Building Information Modeling) is being utilized for
100% of the conduit. With BIM, all aspects of the project are drawn on
the computer from all trades. These are then combined into a 3D model to
confirm there will be no issues when it comes time to install the
components in the field. Project Manager Troy, Foreman Rick along with
his crew can't wait to share the results of this finished project. Stay
