Designed a 236,000 square-foot, 4-story plus partial basement structure. The 186-bed patient facility relocates services from the existing patient tower. The building utilizes steel eccentrically braced frames and resists uplift with pressure grouted soil anchors. The project also includes the design of a new split-level steel moment frame chapel building and a 2-story bridge building. Services included equipment anchorage. Due to poor soil conditions, a combination of drilled piers and spread footings were used. Due to an alternate means of compliance with OSHPD and designing to the 2007 California Building Code saved the project more than $2 million. This OSHPD project had a $160 million construction cost and was completed in 2012. The project was awarded a Merit Award in New Construction from the Structural Engineers Association of San Diego.
