Thornton Tomasetti is the structural engineer for a LEED equivalent, 75,000-square-foot hospital addition. The project scope includes the design of a new 4,500-square-foot freestanding lobby that serves as the welcoming entry point for the hospital as well as the renovation of 9,000-square-feet of the existing Emergency Department. Other new components include diagnostic facilities, central sterile processing facilities, a kitchen and cafeteria, nursing units and surgical and imaging services. The expansion is the first OSHPD-licensed critical care facility in Northern California designed using the ConXtech steel moment frame system.
The project is being performed utilizing the Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) method, wherein the architect, contractor, and all consultants are working from the start as a single entity.
