Built in the 1950s, University Medical Center (UMC) has a long history in Las Vegas. To carry on their legacy, they needed to update the emergency department. They wanted a good-looking, durable environment that also featured exceptional fit and finish. That’s part of what drew them to DIRTT. Our precision-manufactured interiors gave them the control they needed while still working within their budget.

Project Includes:

UMC knows the patient experience is the key to operating a world-class hospital. As the closest medical center to the strip, many of their clientele are tourists. Incorporating graphics on DIRTT panels enabled them to create a welcoming space for visitors that also improved infection prevention and control.

During construction, UMC decided to make a change. With DIRTT, flexibility is built in so adapting on the fly is always an option. In order to accelerate construction, they decided to use DIRTT Flex Gas. Manufacturing walls with medical gas lines already installed meant the project was completed eight months faster. The UMC emergency department was saving lives almost a year sooner than they would have with conventional construction.
