College of Eastern Idaho Chemistry Lab - Idaho Falls
This four classroom renovation with a lab prep room and a chemical storage room is approximately a 4,000 SF renovation to transform existing classrooms for similar uses into this state of the art chemistry, physics and geology laboratories. Work performed includes replacing all existing fluorescent light fixtures with new energy efficient LED light fixtures. Paint all wall surfaces for a fresh new look. Demo all countertops and replace with new chemical-resistant counters. Remove all air, gas, and power at built-in task lighting above center island counters and replace with new power boxes and refurbished air and gas in new countertops. This will be a showcase laboratory for the college as they recruit more students and will also serve as one of the required core labs for students pursuing education at the newly formed college.
College of Eastern Idaho Nursing Lab - Idaho Falls
The design of this new state of the art Nursing Simulation Laboratory stemmed from the demand of the nursing field and occupation to have more highly qualified nurses with greater education and training to seamlessly go from school and into the workforce without skipping a beat. The concept is to have four control rooms that control different and simultaneous simulations of practice patients / cases for students to then give care and diagnose patients needs. Therefore, there is a single large classroom to house 32 students that then get broken down into these four groups for more intimate training. There are four debriefing rooms where students can learn and study real time what is occurring / happening in the actual simulation rooms themselves. To have such a nice new state of the art facility is a huge plus for this newly formed college. Other programming on this renovation includes two offices, two storage rooms, a restroom, laundry room and a PAR level room which all simulate conditions that one would expect to see at a hospital and an emergency room. With this infrastructure in place, rest assured these nursing students are being trained to hand many different situations and scenarios and quickly become a huge help in this highly demanding field.
