A level II trauma center in California, NorthBay Medical Center went though a modernization program that included 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. The scope also included design for diagnostic facilities, central sterile processing facilities, a kitchen and cafeteria, nursing units and surgical and imaging services.
We provided structural design services to Ratcliff Architects for the 75,000-square-foot hospital addition, which opened in 2019.
- The expansion is the first HCAI-licensed critical care facility in Northern California designed using the ConXtech steel moment frame system.
- The project was performed utilizing the Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) method, wherein the architect, contractor and all consultants are working from the start as a single entity. The team took care to work through fireproofing, waterproofing, seismic joints, architectural details, construction details, etc. together to make sure that no surprises would be uncovered during construction.
- The top floor includes a large OR suite, where we designed and installed state-of-the art laminar flow hoods over each operating table and coordinated for large surgical equipment such as a Siemens Zeego and DaVinci Surgical System.
