Planned, designed, and constructed multiple hospital and support structures for the new medical campus in downtown Oakland. The hospital is part of the multi-facility campus project including central plant, medical office building, hospital support services building, a below grade loading dock, and parking structures. The project was carefully planned for integration with the OSHPD review process and went from start of schematic design to OSHPD permit for construction in an unprecedented 18 months using an incremental review process and high level of communication during design. Special design considerations included seismic drift control using a tuned buckling restrained braced system and vibration control for sensitive equipment and operating rooms. The project team including design-assist steel and MEP contractors utilized BIM to coordinate all the above-ceiling systems within the most cost effect story height. Degenkolb is currently involved with the post construction phases to demolish the existing hospital and replace the original central plant that will serve the non-acute care buildings that will remain in operation.
