Van Ness and Geary Campus for Sutter Health/CPMC is a new 12-story, 274 bed acute care hospital built on the site of the former Cathedral Hill Hotel, San Francisco CA. The Hospital will have a women’s and children’s program which will include labor and delivery, postpartum, neo-natal ICU’s, pediatrics and pediatric ICUs. Additional services will include emergency services, oncology, cardiology, transplant and joint replacement, all housed in the new 740,000 square foot building and provide an emergency room centrally located on a major transit route within San Francisco. The Hospital is designed to be able to safely remain open and continue providing essential services after a major earthquake or other disaster.

Challenges
• As is typical with an OSHPD project, all missing information & non typical connections need to be approved & the design documents need to be updated accordingly. More than 650 RFIs were issued to make sure missing information and non-typical details will be reflected in future design drawing packages & consequently the model.
• Model coordination for beam web penetrations - There are three types of beam web penetration we had to consider for this project. First are the duct beam penetrations which are mostly shown in the design drawings. Second is the plumbing beam penetrations and third are the Fire Protection (FP) beam penetrations. Plumbing and FP beam web pens are shown in the IFC / 3D dwg files supplied by the GC. The challenge is to make sure everything is modeled and that the Tekla model matches with the latest IFC / 3d dwg model. Total beam web penetrations for this job is more than 3500.
