Santa Clara Hospital Phase II
Santa Clara, CA
410,000 square feet
The Kaiser Santa Clara Replacement Campus consists of 5 new structures built on a 56-acre greenfield site. The campus was built to replace a 50-year-old hospital and medical campus two miles away.
The hospital is the hub of the campus and was built in two phases, but the building was designed to ultimately function as a single facility. Phase I of the hospital consisted of a 297,000 square-foot structure with the central plant in the basement. Phase II of the hospital consists of a 416,600 square-foot 4-story above grade hospital.
Together, the hospital projects included patient beds, central plant, radiology, outpatient services, laboratories, emergency department, operating rooms, pharmacy, inpatient rehabilitation, cafeteria, safety and security departments. The other 4 buildings on the campus included a medical office building, cancer center, and two parking structures.
Kaiser Santa Clara Hospital Phase 2 was the first hospital project in California to use Building Information Modeling (BIM) to assist with the MEP coordination process in highly congested/MEP system pinch points in the building.
