The project consisted of a state-of-the-art new medical facility catering to both in-patient and out-patient care, including both a 27-bed hospital and an adjacent non-OSHPD medical office building, joined by a three-story atrium. The hospital structure utilizes structural steel and composite slab construction with a steel moment frame designed to maintain an open floor plan. Various lateral force-resisting systems were considered, and the SidePlateTM proprietary moment frame connection system was chosen as a cost-effective solution that met all project criteria. A post-tensioned slab at the office building allowed additional savings for the parking levels located below the office spaces.
