The William J. Hybl Sports Medicine and Performance Center is now open!

Please enjoy our Staff Tour Video in celebration of the William J. Hybl Sports Medicine and Performance Center opening its doors for clinical patients yesterday.  A few weeks before completion, our staff got to tour this incredible project to enjoy the results of all our hard work.

The project integrates medical research, performance, instruction, and patient education. Part of the building is dedicated to medical care and sports performance training, overseen by Centura Health. The other half of the building consists of UCCS lecture halls, classrooms, and specialty exercise areas, including a biomechanics lab and altitude chamber. Our staff was honored to partner with HOK and JE Dunn to bring this City for Champions project to life. The academic side of the facility will finish later this summer in time for the start of UCCS’ academic year.

UCHealth Memorial North Cardiology Suite Expansion Completes Phase 1

The first phase in the three-part expansion of UCHealth Memorial North Cardiology Suite expansion is nearing completion with notable improvements to the iconic lobby, including a new reception and patient-check in desk. The desk was designed to serve as a ‘command center’ for security, inpatient arrivals, and visitor information. 

The remainder of the project will involve the careful shifting of various units as the Cardiology Suite is expanded and the gift shop is relocated to accommodate a Nuclear Imaging room and additional treatment rooms.

St. Mary-Corwin Covid Facility Completed

Thanks to the tireless work of countless construction and trade partners putting in many long days over the last three weeks of construction, the Covid-19 Alternative Care Facility at St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center in Pueblo, CO was completed on May 11th.  The project provides 121 patient beds for lower acuity Covid-19 patients by retrofitting two empty floors at the East patient tower.  A complex HVAC system was necessary to transform the patient rooms to negative pressure isolation rooms. Visible scaffolding supports the exhaust and supply ductwork as can be seen in the image below.

Design features implemented to improve staff safety and patient care include a zoned pressurization approach. A pressurized “clean zone” was provided to offer vertical circulation for staff arrival, staff lockers, staff breakroom, security offices and the hospital command center.

This project is a huge achievement in pandemic response thanks to our partners, Mortenson Construction, Cator Ruma and Associates, MGA Structural Engineers, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St Mary-Corwin Hospital , Centura Health, and countless others.

The Adventure Continues at the Pikes Peak Summit Complex with Construction of North Overloook

Temperatures are warming in the city, but it’s still windy and cold on top of Pikes Peak, where construction on the Summit Complex continues. Within the past few days, the steel framework of the impressive North Overlook has been erected while work on the Visitor Center interior continues. When complete, the overlook will offer spell-binding views of the dramatic features on the north side of the Peak. Sharp eyes are already able to spot the entry lobby's soon-to-be iconic profile on the south side of the summit.

RTA Honored with Challenge Coin For Role in Designing COVID-19 Alternative Care Facility

RTA joined forces with Mortenson Construction, Cator Ruma, MGA Structural Engineers, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and the Army Corps of Engineersto design a COVID-19 Alternative Care Facility at St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center in Pueblo, Colorado. This project is mobilizing quickly to respond to the needs of the community in the face of the pandemic. By mid-May, just 5 weeks after the project’s award, the facility will provide 120 beds for lower-risk COVID-19 patients. Two floors that were previously vacant are being retrofitted with systems to limit contagion spread among staff and patients, with specially designated decontamination zones and carefully designed patient flow.

This extraordinary project was recently visited by a number of dignitaries, including Major General Michael A. Loh of the Colorado National Guard, the Adjutant General of Colorado, who honored Architect Bill Hrinko and others on the project with the presentation of a challenge coin. Appointed by the Governor of Colorado, General Loh serves as the Executive Director of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs and is a member of the Governor’s Cabinet. General Loh is responsible for the operation and management of readiness, fiscal, personnel, equipment, and real property resources of the Department, and ensures the training readiness of all personnel to accomplish both state and federal missions. RTA is extremely proud of the opportunity to be a part of this impactful project in the State's mission to combat COVID-19.
