Kaiser Permanente Westside Medical Center
Provided structural engineering services for the planned Westside Medical Center located on a 14 acre site in Hillsboro, Oregon. catena provided a rapid response in developing the schematic structural design for the buildings in a compressed time frame that allowed for increased accuracy in cost estimating. Components of the project include a hospital building, a hospital support building, and a parking structure. The overall construction cost is estimated at $225 million. The hospital building will house 162 patient rooms, diagnostic & treatment facilities, emergency room facilities, surgery suites, and a subterranean central utility plant.
