Long Beach, California

Size: 64,000 Square Feet

Construction Cost: $30M

MHP Services: Structural Design

The Todd Cancer Pavilion at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center consolidates cancer services in a patient-centered healing environment. The new three-story structure presented structural challenges due to the additions proximity to an existing adjacent four-story building. The new building is a steel-framed structure utilizing special moment-resisting frames for lateral resistance. Through detailed computer modeling, MHP aligned the lateral stiffness of the new and existing structures, thus avoiding the need for a seismic joint between buildings.
