"A monumental project in size, scope and influence"
Sutter’s CPMC Van Ness project, a joint venture between Herrero Builders and Boldt, was awarded ENR’s Best Healthcare project in Northern California. In addition to the top healthcare honor, the project was named a Project of the Year finalist and received a Safety Award of Merit. From the news release:
Occupying an entire city block, this $2.1-billion facility is San Francisco’s first new hospital in a generation and Sutter Health’s largest project to date. The structure unites two existing hospital campuses into one hub for all of Sutter Health California Pacific Medical Center (CMPC) facilities citywide. ENR’s panel of judges were impressed by this “monumental project in size, scope and influence,” noting the challenges of the site’s zero-lot line. They applauded a safety record that “stood above” its competitors.
[Van Ness Campus] leadership credits lean integrated project delivery as another innovation tool. Lean IPD combines the Lean Construction Institute’s Lean Project Delivery (LPD) strategy to minimize waste through collaboration, predictability, innovation and accountability with the sharing of risk and reward through a single relational contract that, at minimum, includes the owner, architect and contractor.
