KPFF provided civil and structural engineering services for a 360,000 sf ambulatory care tower consisting of 300,000 sf healthcare program and 60,000 sf program for the Knight Cancer Clinical Trials. The healthcare program includes ambulatory services, invasive procedures, a 23-hour recovery unit, and expanded ancillary services. The 15-story ambulatory hospital tower is situated on top of the below-grade parking structure built in 2006, which was designed by KPFF to support the weight of a future tower. The garage remained open for the duration of construction. Civil work included public works improvements to 8 frontages, stormwater management design, erosion and sediment control and utility connections. A skybridge connects to the original Center for Health and Healing to the north and a utility tunnel connects to The Gary and Christine Rood Family Pavilion to the east. The Rood Pavilion provides lodging for OHSU patients and their families in partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Principles of LEAN construction and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) were utilized on the project, including the design and construction team co-locating for periods of time during design.
