Sutter Health ~ Sutter Health California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC) Van Ness Campus Hospital

San Francisco, California


This 13-story, 274 bed acute care hospital centrally located in San Francisco includes specialized, advanced and emergency care among its state-of-the-art services.

Along with Sutter Health and SmithGroup architects, HerreroBoldt (a partnership of Herrero Builders and The Boldt Company) used an Integrated Lean Project Delivery® (ILPD) method to deliver a LEED-certified facility that encompasses California Pacific Medical Center's vision and guiding principles. The project, completed on time and on budget, incorporates the latest in construction management including target value design, Building Information Modeling (BIM) and advanced approaches to ILPD. The project even included the complex demolition of two existing 10-story buildings occupying a full city block.

HerreroBoldt, Sutter and The SmithGroup worked together under Sutter’s Health Integrated Form of Agreement (IFOA) which included an integrated team of equal partners. Some of these processes include:

  • Target Value Design (TVD) groups

  • Last planner scheduling

  • A3 reports and culture of learning

  • BIM used for design, constructability and field production

  • Virtual Design Construction (VDC) to visualize the design, coordinate constructability and plan production
