Full Speed Ahead on Healthcare Campus

Swinerton’s Northern California Healthcare team is currently working on the Stanford Healthcare Redwood City Parking Structure project. Stanford Healthcare’s Redwood City campus is an occupied Outpatient Center with patient, staff, and operational traffic. The project is scheduled to complete in June 2018.

The parking structure, designed by Zimmer Gunsul Frasca Architects LLP, will be comprised of 165,000 square feet with five levels—two levels being below-grade and three above. The lower level of the basement includes a 77,000-cubic-foot storm water holding tank. 

The scope of work also includes the demolition of the existing parking lot; installation of a 500-foot by 110-foot sheet pile shoring system; excavation ranging from 12–25 feet below existing grade; and a tie-down foundation consisting of 270 piles and a mat slab ranging from 3–5 feet thick. The parking structure has been designed for a total of 578 parking spaces including standard, ADA vans, ADA, electric vehicles, clean air vehicles, and motorcycles. There are two elevator and stair cores with glass curtain walls and metal panel exterior cladding. The perimeter of the structure includes planters with hanging and climbing vegetation, and extensive site work including colored pavements and bioretention systems. Landscaping will also take place.

In November 2016, the project team broke ground and began demolishing, shoring, excavation, and tie-downs. The team followed the tie-down install with the final grading and rat slab, and moved right in to rat slab placement and waterproofing. In July, Concrete Services  placed the entire mat slab, which totaled over 8,000 cubic yards.

Swinerton is also building other projects on the campus, including a canopy and 120,000 square feet of medical and administrative tenant spaces.
