Health Care, Award of Merit: Kaiser San Leandro Medical Center, San Leandro
The team delivered the medical center—which includes a six-story, 435,900-sq-ft hospital; four-story, 277,000-sq-ft hospital support building; and central utility plant with cogeneration, water storage and high-efficiency thermal fluid boilers—seven months ahead of schedule. This was done through meticulous preconstruction coordination and the use of cloud technology paired with handheld devices that provided real-time tracking ability. The 216-bed hospital can be expanded to 264 beds once the top floor is built out. Also, one side of the structure can accommodate a third patient tower. Built on a former brownfield, the 35-acre facility has a stormwater collection-reuse system that relies on bioswales. Crews recycled 97% of a demolished building and construction waste material.
