Four Layton Construction projects have been recognized as 2010 Idaho Top Projects by the Idaho Business Review (IBR). The IBR publishes its Idaho Top Projects magazine annually. This year, the magazine features 64 commercial projects, ranked by dollar amount, that were started or completed in 2009 in the areas of government, office/retail and private. The top three projects in each category were honored at an awards reception held on the afternoon of July 28, 2010 at the newly renovated Idaho State Capitol Building in Boise, at which Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter spoke.
Layton's Top Projects include:
Portneuf Medical Center Expansion and Renovation
Ranked No. 1 in the Private category. The new 358,167-square-foot hospital, located in Pocatello, will include a six-story patient tower housing 187 acute care beds, a 25-bed emergency department and 16 newborn intensive care (NICU) beds. Among a full range of health care services offered are cardiovascular, oncology, pediatrics, orthopedics, MRI, CT and nuclear medicine services.

The project was completed in February.

Ranked No. 5 in the Private category. Layton completed a 40,000-square-foot facility for the University of Phoenix in Meridian that houses administrative offices, classroom facilities and a coffee shop/lounge area.
