Sandy Smith writes that the more than 1 million-square-foot Global Center for Health Innovation and Cleveland Convention Center in downtown Cleveland features showrooms, conference and seminar rooms and exhibition space.
Turner Construction and URS began work on the facility in May 2010.
URS served as project record architect, Turner as design-build contractor and Seattle, Wash.-based LMN Architects designed the development drawings, according to the report.
The building also includes a green roof, an energy-saving lighting and low-flow water fitting as part of efforts to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Silver certification, the report says.
Smith writes the construction team based the stormwater collection system design on the 1960 mat foundations of the original Cleveland Convention Center.
The project saved more than $250,000 from construction waste that Turner recycled and converted into new materials, EHS Today reports.
