UCF School of Medicine

Overview

Joining the 650-acre master-planned Medical City at Lake Nona, not only did the UCF College of Medicine become the first medical university in Central Florida but the most modern in the country. Kenpat USA took pride in being a part of building the historic facility that will produce the first graduating class in 2013. The unique design of over 170,000 square feet, four-story building was not short of challenges. One of the challenges was presented in the radius shaped structural design. Kenpat took on the challenge and began interior construction of 275, 000 square feet of drywall, 200,000 lineal feet of light gage metal framing, and 90,000 square feet of acoustical ceiling systems for the new teaching facility in February 2009.

The UCF College of Medicine was a new construction of over 170,000 square feet Silver LEED® building which became another significant addition to the Lake Nona Medical City. Kenpat USA participated in building this $65 million facility by completing 275, 000 square feet of drywall, 200,000 lineal feet of light gage metal framing, and 90,000 square feet of acoustical ceiling systems in June 2010. The contract value of over $2 million consisted of the following scope of work:
• Light Gauge Metal Framing
• Gypsum Wallboard
• Acoustical Ceilings
• Acoustical Wall Panels
• GRC Domes
• Gypsum Wallboards
• Insulation Systems

KENPAT self-performed 100% of this scope.
