Salud Family Health Center provides exemplary healthcare for local residents and boasts a stellar reputation. Along with medical office building space, the first two levels include x-ray rooms, dental office, administrative offices, and exam rooms for patients.

Mechanical and electrical systems were designed to meet clinic codes, budget constraints for construction, and operating costs. Owners needed the full building, including all x-ray rooms, dental offices, etc. to be fully operational and comfortable for occupants and guests. BG provided mechanical, electrical, and lighting design for the project, which consisted of 17,855 square feet of medical office building on levels 1 and 2 and 9,000 square feet of core and shell basement. The first two levels include x-ray rooms, dental office, administrative offices, and exam rooms.


The expanding population in Rock Springs combined with the outdated facilities caused the taxpayers to vote for a new medical office building and cancer treatment center.

BG provided startup commissioning authority services for the new 80,000 SF facility that was constructed on the existing Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County (MHSC) campus. Several systems were commissioned as part of the firm’s contract with MHSC including HVAC and controls systems, domestic hot water, lighting systems and controls, linear accelerator cooling system, and the sump pump system.

The new three-story facility includes general medical office space as well as a linear accelerator, a chemotherapy suite, a dialysis suite, a CT scanner, physical therapy areas, and an outpatient surgery suite. BG’s staff helped the MHSC team obtain their goal of “promoting the health of the people in its service area.” The new medical office building and cancer treatment center allow the small community to be able to provide 90 percent of the radiation and oncology care that may be necessary, a large improvement from the previous 0 percent.

Building owners experienced a smooth turnover process. The MHSC operations and maintenance staff were provided with in-depth training on the new systems allowing the building to run as intended by the design team. BG’s collaborative commissioning approach ensured that all issues were addressed quickly and efficiently, ultimately saving MHSC time and money, all while decreasing stress.


Cibola Family Health Center required a team of engineers who are experts in designing facilities with long-term benefits. It was critical that their new facility had positive building turnover and cost-effective systems.

BG provided design, engineering, energy modeling, LEED championing, consulting and contracting services throughout the facility.

The BG team worked to provide responsive solutions long after the turnover stage of the project. Our team acted as consultants, trusted advisors and code experts for facility management and owners. The facility earned high marks in Indoor Environment Quality for the USGBC, and the building achieved a LEED Gold certification.


With the expansions within their campus and a growing local community, Christus St. Vincent Hospital identified the need to upgrade the hospital’s chiller plant. This improvement better prepared the campus for future needs. With this in mind, Christus St. Vincent Hospital hired BG to replace and relocate the existing chiller plant to address not only the current load, but future cooling load needs.

BG performed a validation review of the five-year-old plant master plan and provided recommendations based on life cycle costing and strategic energy consumption measures (ECM).
The project team identified and recommended mechanical and electrical master plan plant upgrade options and strategic ECMs for implementation in conjunction with the chiller replacement. The options and ECMs were structured to reduce risks, increase reliability, provide redundancy, reduce plant operating and maintenance costs, and maximize Return on Investment (ROI). In addition, BG’s project team assembled as well as coordinated design and construction teams to provide an integrated project approach to help the hospital maximize patient care and administrative and facilities department stakeholders.
