The Joint Health Education Center, located in Hendersonville, North Carolina, will soon be the most innovative healthcare facility in the region.
Seeking to be a place of collaboration for healthcare providers and education, the Center sits on the campus of Pardee Hospital, home also to Wingate University’s Pharmacy and Physician Assistant programs and Blue Ridge Community College’s Nursing and Surgical Technology programs.
Rival Construction has had a unique opportunity to be a part of this
ground-breaking project. The Joint Health Education Center contains a
cutting-edge cancer center with a Linear Accelerator Vault. This vault,
built by Rival, has over 500 cubic yards of concrete alone, and the
concrete walls and ceilings are 6 feet thick!
While the Linear Accelerator Vault was no small task, it was just a
portion of Rival’s overall work on the Center. In all, the Center will
be a 3-story building with 95,000 square feet. It contains 160 tons of
rebar and a total of 4,368 cubic yards of concrete.
We are certain that the Joint Health Education Center will be a place
of community, collaboration and cultivation, serving the region for
years to come. Thankful to be a part of this innovative facility, we
hope it is a testament to the future of education and healthcare, where
students are inspired and medical professionals are encouraged by rising

And at 77 million strong, the Boomers are flocking to retirement
communities, assisted-living homes and new condos with modern amenities

to name a few. Rival Construction is intent on making sure these
Boomers have a place to call their own, and Asheville seems to be the
prime location for retirees.
In 2015 Asheville was voted most popular place to retire, and we can
see why. With its backdrop of mountains, plethora of delicious
restaurants and mild weather, Asheville beat out Charleston, South

Just East of downtown Asheville sits a new, 4-story, office building with a 3-story parking garage.
This is Asheville’s new City Centre, home to BB&T bank’s regional
offices, Roberts & Stevens law firm and several other companies.
Rival Construction played a large role in the City Centre’s completion. We completed all the structural concrete – slabs, walls, walks, etc. – with a turnkey concrete package. This included 580 cubic yards (cy) of concrete in the footings, 460 cy of concrete in the walls, 1920 cy of concrete in the slabs and 125 tons of rebar in the footings and walls. The entire project covered 164,259 sq. ft.
Our detailed planning, site utilization and delivery were key to the
City Centre’s success. The project was built on a site with zero
clearances and in conjunction with the new Hilton Garden Inn, an 8-story
hotel located on the same site.
