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.
The Red Building consists of two towers that together contain 400,000 square feet built above a seven-story parking garage. The East Tower rises 16 stories and the West Tower tops out at the 14th floor. The geometry and the 120’ cantilever near San Vicente Boulevard added to the complexity of the steel erection.
Currently under construction, the 64-story mixed-use high-rise is located at 50 First Street in San Francisco. The 910 foot hotel, residential and office tower will surpass the height of the iconic Transamerica Pyramid and become San Francisco’s second tallest building. Erection of the structural steel for the 1.4 million square foot high-rise is scheduled to be completed in 2021.
The new facility includes 24 courtrooms and 32 justice chambers. Herrick was responsible for designing the temporary shoring system that supported “the cube” during construction. The building is designed to achieve LEED Platinum certification, due to such innovations as the serrated facade, which maximizes views from the interior and cuts down on up to 50% of heat generated from solar rays.
