Sharp Memorial Hospital Seismic Renovation of South and Central Towers and ICU Remodel

Sharp Memorial Hospital Seismic Renovation

Healthcare Facilities, National Award of Merit

San Diego, Calif.

The existing Sharp Memorial Hospital needed to be upgraded from SPC-1 to SPC-2. Since the alternative was to demolish the existing building and build a complete new facility at a very high cost as well as taking the hospital out of commission for the duration, a renovation was the best alternative. The working conditions were challenging since all construction needed to be done while the hospital was in full use. Through design-build, the team delivered a fully compliant renovated building in 24 months and within the budget.
