Project JOE included districtwide modernizations for San Juan USD. Our work was focused on the new design and modernizations at Cowan Elementary and Greer Elementary School.
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.
Designed the renovation improvements to the existing 6,000 square foot culinary arts facility along with a seismically separated 13,600 square foot addition housing new culinary instruction spaces and a full-service restaurant.
Performance-based design methodologies were implemented to ensure that the structure would be able to resist a Cascadia earthquake while having sufficient capacity to resist subsequent tsunami inundation forces.
Seismically strengthened and expanded the 42-year-old existing, original two-story reinforced concrete building, using ASCE-41.
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.
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.
To minimize disruption to the student occupants and symbolize the building’s modernization, innovative exterior strengthening schemes were developed and utilized.
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.
For every new building, our goal is to provide our clients with an efficient design while not compromising quality. One method we have found that fosters this is fast-track project scheduling, which reduces project schedules and saves construction cost. Through structural technologies such as sustainable and performance-based design, Degenkolb can produce a design that is more efficiently constructable while ensuring maximum seismic safety on the building.
