The Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford expansion will add 521,000 -sq.-ft. to the existing hospital and will include advanced technologies and environmentally-sensitive systems. The expansion, which is targeting LEED Gold certification, is designed to further the hospital’s mission of providing family-centered pediatric and obstetric care and will include 149 new hospital rooms, new surgical and diagnostic suites, new treatment rooms and clinics. Additionally, the expansion will provide more than three acres of outdoor areas and gardens for families, as nature serves an important role in the healing process.
DPR has collaborated closely with architects HGA and Perkins+Will to ensure integrated planning and execution. Together, the teams navigated the complexity of a dense, congested site in a fully-operational medical center to develop optimal solutions to phasing, staging, and sequencing of permits and construction so as to minimize disruptions to the facility and the university. During the Construction Documents Phase the team was collocated in a “Big Room” with the owner working hand in hand to: optimize the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM), develop Target Costing strategies, lead Pull Planning sessions, develop fast track permit packages and developing prefabrication opportunities with trade partners.
The project also included the relocation of existing onsite utilities and make-ready site work, demolition of two existing buildings, and expansion of the emergency generators and medical gas yards, as well as underground parking for a minimum of 430 cars.
In January 2015, more than 1,200 construction workers, donors, hospital and medical staff, and executives signed the steel beam that was hoisted into position during the project's “topping off” ceremony, marking the completion of structural steel erection.
The Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford project will complete construction in 2016. The new facility is scheduled to open the following year.
