The Mulvaney Medical Office Building grand opening was held September 23 in Boise. The three-story, 70,000 sq ft building, located on the Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center Campus, is the first medical office building in Idaho to pursue LEED Gold certification.
Designed by CSHQA of Boise and built by Engineered Structures, Inc. of Boise, the project integrates multiple sustainable strategies including high performance glazing, building envelope, and lighting systems, durable and low maintenance building materials, non-toxic finishes and carpet, a 2,500 sq ft vegetated healing garden on the second floor; roof skylights, and exterior shading devices on the west, east, and south elevations that provide 13% of modeled energy savings.
ESI and CSHQA were presented with the unique challenge of designing and constructing a sustainable, state-of-the-art, medical office building that incorporated the recently complete $161 million Central Tower project’s architectural vernacular and corporate branding influences. The building is named in honor of Sister Patricia Mulvaney and Sister Beth Mulvaney, and owned by Cameron Investments.
