Providing design services for the planned 68,000 square foot addition to and renovation of the existing 57,000 square foot Shriners Hospital on Marquam Hill in Portland. catena was chosen for this project due to the wealth of health care design experience and our vast experience delivering successful projects on the challenging sites of Marquam Hill. Our experience is quickly paying off for the project through rapid development of the structural and foundation systems, early review and buy - off from permitting agencies, and reduced construction costs. The four-story expansion will span 90 feet over the existing parking structure with steel transfer trusses. The building will use Buckling Restrained Braced Frames for seismic resistance, a system that will provide improved seismic performance and will save construction costs. The addition will be designed to accommodate a future three-story addition.
