Sutter Health ~ Hospital at Van Ness and Geary Campus

San Francisco, California

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This 13-story, 274 bed acute care hospital, with room for expansion to 304 beds, will be built in a spirit of innovative collaboration that embraces a Lean culture. Centrally located in San Francisco, the hospital will include specialized and advanced care, along with emergency care among its state-of-the-art services.

Along with Sutter Health and SmithGroupJJR architects, HerreroBoldt (a partnership of Herrero Builders and The Boldt Company) is using Integrated Lean Project Delivery® (ILPD) to deliver a LEED-certified facility that encompasses California Pacific Medical Center's vision and guiding principles. The project will incorporate 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.

The goal is to build this proposed facility that is 740,000 sq. ft. and below the cost of current healthcare market projects of similar size and indications to date point to a successful outcome.

HerreroBoldt, Sutter and The SmithGroup are all working together under Sutter’s Health Integrated Form of Agreement (IFOA) which includes 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

  • Construction Cost: $925 million after preconstruction with a start of $1.1 billion.

Key Points

  • This project is a Cost Plus IFOA (Integrated Form of Agreement) where HerreroBoldt and trade partners are profit-at-risk.

  • The Van Ness and Geary Campus is seeking LEED® Silver certification.
