PROJECT TYPE / COMMERCIAL HEALTHCARE BUILDING CORE & SHELL
LOCATION / SAN FRANCISCO, CA / 2011
PHASE / CURRENTLY IN CONSTRUCTION
SIZE / 1.2 MILLION SF
Applying Lean Management & Virtual Design Construction techniques pioneered by the automotive industry, Sutter Health and CPMC in San Francisco used a progressive project delivery approach called Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) -- collocating client representatives, designers, contractors and key trade partners in a single location to ensure collaboration in all aspects of design and delivery. This collaboration is enhanced by the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM), an advanced virtual modeling process that allows real time design changes and reduction of potential errors; CPMC is one of the largest and most complex projects to be designed with this new method. The project was designed to meet a LEED Silver rating, making it one of the largest hospital projects ever to seek LEED certification.
This 1.2 million sf, 16 stories urban replacement hospital isn’t just state-of-the-art; it’s breaking new ground in multiple areas of design and operations. Designed to accommodate 555 beds for adults and women/children, the new hospital is organized around comprehensive centers of care rather than traditional departments, enhancing the delivery of patient care while improving space efficiencies, workflow and productivity.
