Orlando College of Osteopathic Medicine (OCOM) stands poised to become a globally renowned hub of medical education situated in the vibrant locale of Winter Garden, Florida. It was founded with the support of Dr. Kiran Patel. The school aims to train compassionate and competent physicians who will make a positive impact on the Central Florida community, our nation, and the world at large. Currently, the school is in the developmental stage of accreditation and awaits approval to begin recruiting students. In addition to the school, Colwill is also involved in the construction of a sprawling multi-family housing complex nearby, comprising 360 units.


The centerpiece of the College is a stunning, state-of-the-art, 140,000-square-foot, 3-story building for Osteopathic Medicine. It includes an outdoor “event” lawn, a spacious lobby, two auditoriums, multiple classrooms and group study areas, various medical labs, a library, a cafĂ©, a fitness room, offices, a functioning dental office, an executive rooftop terrace, and other supporting areas.


Colwill has teamed up with frequent collaborator Element Commercial Construction, who serves as the general contractor, and Baker Barrios Inc., who leads the architectural design. The OCOM campus is a comprehensive design-build project that demands the involvement of every Colwill department. From electrical and engineering to technology and mechanical, each department closely collaborates to ensure on-time delivery and flawless results.

A snapshot of the extensive responsibilities and achievements held by each department:

Our Engineering Group led the project by pulling everything together and serving as the coordination leader between the Architect, General Contractor, Owner, and our internal construction groups. Our Engineering Group was heavily involved in designing lighting levels for each type of room. There are many Classrooms, SIM Lab Rooms, Lecture Halls, Office Areas, etc. which required detailed coordination.

Our Electrical Group aided in the design & construction of the Indoor & Exterior Lighting, Electrical Power, Generator, Fire Alarm, BDA System, Area of Rescue System, Site Lighting, EV Car Chargers, Lighting for the Statue of Dr. Patel, etc.

Our Technologies Group aided in the design & construction of the I.T. Systems Network Wiring, Mass Notification System, Access Control System, CCTV System, and more, many months of planning and meetings were held to select equipment.

Our Mechanical Group aided in the design & construction of the Rooftop HVAC Units, VAV Controls. Offsite prefabrication of the ductwork was utilized to help shorten the installation timeframe.


The project began design in 2021, started construction late in 2022, and is scheduled for completion in December 2023. The new osteopathic medical center represents both a remarkable achievement in healthcare and a remarkable achievement for our firm. Once completed, the beautiful, high-tech building will create a world-class atmosphere for students to learn, with advanced equipment and facilities to ensure the highest level of education. Immense praise goes to the entire Colwill team, whose unwavering dedication and expertise have been instrumental in ensuring the resounding success of this project.

Power your project with unmatched electrical expertise.
