The 530,000 sf state of the art Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital is currently under construction and planned for opening in 2017. This distinctive 6-story building is located directly adjacent to existing hospital facilities of Stanford Health Care. The 150 bed tower includes clinic , diagnostic treatment, and support spaces. The 200,000 square foot parking garage includes 420 spaces in a 5-story above grade/3-story below grade structure. The existing hospital has maintained operations while the new Children’s Hospital is under construction. In addition to the structural design, Degenkolb has been involved planning the challenging phased make ready work and foundation protection systems for the adjacent buildings approved by OSHPD. Adding to its distinction, some skin elements are the first of their kind to be approved for hospital use in California. Targeting LEED certification, this world-class facility uses sustainable materials and systems as well as creating a healing experience that will establish new standards.
