Occupying an entire city block, this 13-story, 274 bed acute-care hospital is being built in a spirit of innovative collaboration that embraces a LEAN culture. The 740,000 square foot hospital includes 119 viscous wall dampers that absorb energy to reduce any lateral movement caused by earthquakes and wind. The system also reduces the amount of structural steel required in the building. It is the first of its kind in North America.
The 824,000 square foot facility will dramatically increase capacity on the Stanford University Medical Campus. It also enables Stanford to house additional medical technology, meet updated seismic-safety requirements, and enhance patient care. Located on the Stanford University Medical Center campus and adjacent to the site of the current Adult Stanford Hospital, the facility features a flexible pavilion design with 368 patient rooms housing 600 patient beds.
Key speciality contractors from design and construction were integrated into the project very early on, which resulted in a more efficient design that both reduced cost and accelerated the schedule. The structural steel was fabricated and erected $7.2 million under budget and 6 weeks ahead of schedule. The erection was completed with zero change orders and one quarter of the typical number of RFI's.
Standing over 800 feet tall and with 58 stories, 181 Fremont offers breathtaking, uninterrupted views of San Francisco Bay and its urban waterfront. This distinctive mixed-use high-rise has 432,000 square feet of office space as well as 74 ultra-luxury residences on the top 15 floors of the tower. The building’s unique exoskeleton structural system provides column-free interiors to maximize flexibility when planning spaces and an enhanced skyline that will add a...
