Sutter Health / California Pacific Medical Center’s new 274-bed hospital at Van Ness and Geary is taking full advantage of 3D modeling software to guide and streamline the construction process in real time.
Vantage Senior Consultant Robert Gannon oversees and coordinates the complex audiovisual and network designs from his on-site office across the street at 1200 Van Ness Ave, and has watched the project evolve from demolition of the old Cathedral Hill Hotel in 2014.
The new building will be topping out (structural steel 100% complete) on December 8, 2015, and occupancy is scheduled for Q1 2019. CPMC’s LEED-driven innovative construction concepts include a 12-story home for the women’s, children’s, cardiology, oncology, emergency care and transplant departments, creating 740,000 square feet of new diagnostic, treatment and patient bed space.
An adjacent 253,000 square foot, 9-story medical office building will accommodate outpatient services and health care professionals. The two buildings will connect via an underground pedestrian tunnel with 376,000 square feet of below-grade parking.
Vantage is also involved in a third state-of-the-art CPMC project, the 215,000 square foot, 120-bed St. Luke’s Campus in San Francisco’s Mission District. The hospital at the St. Luke’s Campus will be a LEED-certified building incorporating vegetated exteriors, healthy building materials and water conservation systems.
This article and video from ABC7 News in San Francisco describes how virtual modeling is used to facilitate the construction process at the CPMC Van Ness and Geary Campus.
