The Mission-Bernal Campus Replacement Hospital project included a new 7-story hospital with approximately 215,000 sq. ft. of acute care, clinical, and building infrastructure space, which was built adjacent to the existing 1960’s-era hospital it replaced. The new hospital has a total of 120-beds, including 88 Medical/Surgical beds, 10 ICUs and 22 Labor/Delivery and Postpartum beds. Supporting services include an Imaging Department with an MRI, five ORs, CT, and a new Emergency Department with 16 Exam/Treatment Room.
The IPD/IFOA Team included: Sutter Health/CPMC, SmithGroup, Boulder Architects, HerreroBoldt (a partnership of Herrero Builders and The Boldt Company) and many other Trade Partners, subcontractors and consultants. The IPDT utilized BIM to visualize the design, coordinate installation of building systems, and plan production.
The site was characterized by multiple logistical constraints - hemmed in on two sides by city streets, on one side by residential structures, and on the remaining side by the existing operating hospital. Preparation included the complete removal of existing sewer, gas, and electrical utilities from a portion of San Jose Ave. which needed to be vacated to create room for the new structure. The congested and highly trafficked site required constant planning to allow deliveries, crane picks, parking, and operations to flow seamlessly.
