Mosser Construction, Inc. was awarded one of the seven prestigious Build Ohio Awards presented by the Associated General Contractors of Ohio (AGC of Ohio) for the construction of The University of Toledo Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center project (IISC).
This one-of-a-kind, advanced-technology project was entered in the Specialty Over $7 Million category and won the coveted bronze and marble award at the award gala on Friday, November 14, at the Hilton Polaris in Columbus. Mosser Construction was recognized as being among the best in the state in performance as it relates to schedule; client service excellence; meeting the challenge of a difficult job; craftsmanship; and innovations in construction techniques and materials. This marks the eighth Build Ohio Award for Mosser Construction.
The University of Toledo IISC features technology found nowhere else in the world. The IISC allows students and practitioners to get hands-on experience with procedures, learn to work in health care teams, and receive instant feedback using computerized simulation models and virtual technologies.
Mosser Construction built the 64,000 square foot IISC through a phased, design-bid-build approach allowing construction to begin long before technology partners were secured or the building completely designed. Creativity and innovation were required to configure and install the dramatic structural lighting elements topping the unique three-story atrium.
The process of dismantling, storing and reinstalling commissioned stained glass artwork was yet another way this one-of-a-kind project took craftsmanship to new heights. The biggest challenge to overcome was to eliminate noise and vibrations since National Board Examinations were being conducted on the other side of an atrium wall throughout the project.
Mosser Construction successfully built all three phases of the IISC, worked through the evolving design as new technology partners were added – as late as three months before the IISC opened – and delivered the project on schedule.
