San Francisco General Hospital

SF-Bay Area

The new San Francisco General Hospital will have 284 beds, 14 operating rooms, and provide the only Level-1 trauma care in the city. The 460,000 sq ft steel structure will consist of two levels below grade and eight levels above grade including a mechanical penthouse. The hospital will feature a 40,000 sq ft emergency room, a 20,000 sq ft radiology department, and units providing Intensive Care, Critical Care, Neonatal Intensive Care, and Forensic services. Other service areas will include Obstetrics, Pediatrics, Sterile Processing, Pharmacy, Laboratory, Pulmonary Function, Biomedical, Morgue and Autopsy.

Successfully integrating the site utilities was a significant challenge. The campus has been in continuous operation since 1872, so there were multiple existing buildings and many site unknowns. The collaborative use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) with the core subcontractors allowed the team to evaluate vari­ous alternatives for routing the active steam lines, I.T. conduits, 12 Kv electrical power, and sewer connections. This process allowed the utilities installation to continue ahead of schedule while saving over $1 Million.

The project is seeking LEED Gold certification.
