The new pediatric hospital at Stanford Health adds 521,000 sf, features two connected five-story towers on a three-story podium. Its “Z” shape allows space for gardens and provides every room a view of nature.

As Structural Engineer of Record, Degenkolb Engineers is part of the Hensel Phelps and SmithGroupJJR / AVRP design-build team.

Degenkolb designed the separation of the fifteen-story plus basement concrete Moffitt Hospital and the Medical Sciences Building of similar size to satisfy SB 1953 requirements.

Degenkolb was prime consultant for the SPC4D / NPC4 seismic upgrade of the 1964 steam plant, which serves Loma Linda Medical Center and Loma Linda University.

The 165,000 square foot building includes 50 provider offices and a cancer treatment center.

The project achieved about $50 million escalation cost savings by using an incremental review process during design.

Degenkolb led a multi-disciplinary team of consultants for the seismic upgrade of this 70,000 square-foot earthquake-damaged, two-story, welded steel moment frame building.

Stanford Redwood City is the first significant expansion outside of Stanford’s main campus. Five miles away from the main campus, the new campus encompasses a 35-acre site, which will be developed in phases.

The new, five-story, 92,000 square-foot, $80 million Neuroscience Health Center offers a one-stop destination for multidisciplinary visits for neuroscience patients.

This project allowed for design outside of OSHPD standard codes, lowering costs of building systems and reducing the time inherent in the OSHPD approval process.

Made possible through a landmark gift by the Weill Family Foundation, the UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences leverages UCSF’s bench-to-bedside excellence.

The VA envisioned a new mental health and research building.

This facility was delivered as a private-public partnership (P3), a first for the VA.

The design of the Center Utility Plant allows the facility to function an additional 10 days on its own without utility resources.

The team scheduled, quantified, analyzed, and documented the design in real time, reducing waste.

Converted this existing structural steel, moment frame building into one of Kaiser’s newest MOBs.

The project was delivered with LEAN design practices, including extensive validation and planning phase.

Design includes a 315,000 square foot, nine-story, 169-bed acute care tower and an 80,000 square foot satellite building with a 175-space underground parking garage.

Delivering modern, efficient, technologically advanced healthcare facilities

As award-winning structural engineers for technically complex, state-of-the-art facilities, we have more than 25 project managers experienced in the complex demands and evolving technologies driving health care facilities and design today. Degenkolb has designed healthcare structures using moment frames (including ConXtech), braced frames, concrete tilt-ups, modular lightweight steel, and almost everything in between including hybrid systems. We drive for appropriate creative and innovative solutions that benefit the client
