Overview of projects

Betty Irene Moore Hall

Vanir provided program and construction management services for the Betty Irene Moore Hall, School of Nursing project for the UC Davis Health System. The three-story building provides state-of-the-art facilities, with the latest in technology for collaborative learning, including simulation spaces to allow students to imitate clinical care experiences.

Certified LEED Gold, this is the first building on campus to be 20% more efficient than new Title 24 Code energy requirements and utilize whole building energy modeling. It will house instructional, administration, and support services for students, faculty, and staff for the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing.

ACC Expansion/Eye Center

Vanir is working with the UC Davis Health System, as its project and construction manager, to deliver a world-class Eye Center at the UC Davis Medical Center. Our range of services include planning, criteria development, and bidding, through design, construction, and warranty phases. The new building will house clinical, research, administration, and support services for patients, faculty, and staff for the Ophthalmology Department at UC Davis.

Vanir is providing sustainable design criteria services, and the project will comply with the University’s policies for green building design, clean energy standards, and sustainable transportation practices.
