MCL Construction in Omaha, Nebraska, wins the 2018 Association of General Contractors (AGC)-Nebraska Building Chapter's Build Nebraska Award for the best project over $50 million. AGC peers throughout the country selected the Creighton School of Dentistry project as the winner in its category.
"This honor humbles the entire MCL Construction team," said MCL Senior Vice President Tony Fucinaro. "This was a project from start to finish that was committed to delivering excellence for Creighton University. In addition to our team, RDG Planning and Design, Project Advocates, and all our building partners made this a success."
MCL Construction was able to expedite the project schedule by utilizing its in-house Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) team. This approach allowed the team to identify and eliminate clashes before construction started, prefabricated several components of the building to eliminate overall working hours on the project, and save 48 days on the overall master schedule. MCL Construction's innovative approach to construction management saved Creighton University time and money.
MCL Construction utilized its Augmented Reality (AR) technology to take Creighton University Dental School staff into their clinics, classrooms, and labs for a realistic view even before they were complete. Additionally, AR technology assisted MCL Construction with quality assurance, layout, and safety.
The project includes expanded clinical spaces for adults and children which allows the university to provide over $1.3 million in services to underserved patients. These services include free clinics, preventative care education, and pediatric dental care.
Creighton University estimates the School of Dentistry project will reach an economic impact on the Omaha community of $848 million in 2023 with the new facility and up to 200 new jobs will be created indirectly.
