University of Nebraska Medical Center - Lied Transplant Center

MMC Contractors was awarded the contract to provide mechanical construction services for the Lied Transplant Center at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. The $61.3 million facility was the first of its kind in the U.S. to offer a unique approach to patient care with multidisciplinary healthcare professionals, patient education, and on-site research.

This revolutionary new health care model, known as Cooperative Care, provides more accurate diagnoses, better treatments, more successful outcomes, and faster recoveries; resulting in lower healthcare costs. The center serves as a national model for solid organ and bone marrow transplant programs.

The 15-floor facility consists of 251,000 square feet and houses medical apartments for patients and their caretakers; a large ambulatory care center; offices and laboratories for personnel involved with research and clinical care of transplant patients; and a health education center.

The building has 158,000 CFM of airflow, which includes HVAC systems appropriate for immune-compromised individuals. The HVAC system contains six fans which exhaust 133,200 CFM from 64 laboratory areas. MMC Contractors also installed hydronic systems, laboratory systems, and medical gas systems as part of its $12.2 million contract. Approximately 140,000 linear feet of piping were used in the construction of these systems.
