Kaiser Permanente Oakland New Cancer Center

Kaiser Permanente, Oakland Cancer Care Center, Medical Office Building

Degenkolb designed this 165,000 square foot, $59 million medical office building with 50 provider offices and a cancer treatment center. Services at the six-story steel frame structure include radiation therapy, education classes, pharmacy, neurology, pediatric rehabilitation and adult physical therapy. The structural system is a buckling restrained braced frame supported on concrete basement walls and a mat foundation. The foundation design utilized drilled piers to control displacements at the heavy concentrated loads of the linear accelerator vault and the adjacent parking garage two-story basement. Unique project features included load dock access to the building adjacent to an existing hotel and existing creek that transitioned to a culvert that travels underneath the loading dock ramp.
