In Partnership With

Design and Construction Notes:
New Stanford Hospital

For the past eleven years, Perkins Eastman has worked with Stanford Health Care and architect Rafael Viñoly on the programming, medical planning, design, and construction for the New Stanford Hospital. As the 820,000 sf hospital nears completion, and final entitlements approvals are obtained, the goal to provide innovative patient care by implementing a hospitality-focused environment and by converging Stanford’s academic, research, and clinical programs, is finally coming to fruition.

Join Perkin Eastman’s Roland Lau and JoAnn Brooks as they discuss their experience during design and construction, and the collaboration between the owner/architects/engineers/contractor and sub-contractors, as well as entitlements regulators. They will be joined by NYA’s Sudharshan Navalpakkam, who will reflect on the primary structural systems used in the design. Johnny Chung from Mazzetti will speak to his experience as the key Project Manager for implementation of the mechanical, electrical and plumbing design in the construction phase. Michael Chambers, FAIA and FCSI from HGA Architects & Engineers, will be the moderator for the presentation and will field questions from the audience.
