Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Institute (RMLEI) expansion
The RMLEI expansion project will more than double the size of the current clinical space.
The five-story expansion will:
- Add 87,000 square feet – 47,000 square feet of new finished space and 40,000 of shell space
- Provide a surgery suite with three eye operating rooms and a sterile processing department
- Provide additional exam rooms
- Add a large optical shop
- Include research facilities
The construction will require that the current main entrance to RMLEI be closed and that the roadway to the entrance be rerouted until the project is complete.
The parking lot in front of RMLEI will also be closed during construction.
Construction is expected to be completed in late summer 2014.
