The Lucille Packard Children's Hospital Expansion is an eight story facility, two stories below grade and six stories above grade, approximately 800,000 square feet. The LPCH Expansion provides an additional 104 patient beds to the existing facility for a total of 361 patient beds that will serve a growing community with specialized pediatric and obstetric care. Amenities on the 3.5 acre site located in Palo Alto, CA include a 2 story below grade parking garage, outdoor meditation gardens, and a chapel in close proximity to Stanford University and the Stanford Shopping Mall. The design emphasis is centered around creating an inviting family environment with special attention to children and sustainability. Visitors and patients will experience natural light throughout and views overlooking gardens and nearby surrounding Redwoods from interior lobbies, waiting areas, and patient rooms. Construction of the LPCH Expansion began early in 2012.
The LPCH Expansion project is integrating Lean Construction processes. The Design and Construction Teams partnered using BIM coordination processes to meet weekly and major schedule milestones and achieve target costs. Collaboration utilizing BIM technology allowed the LPCH Team to generate Presentations, Construction Documents, Model-Based Quantity Take-offs, Model-Based Estimating, Design Build/ Design Assist Work Detailing and Tracking, MEP Coordination, 4D Sequencing, BIM-Enabled Constructability Analysis, Total Station Integration, Site Logistics Planning. All major building systems were designed utilizing BIM tools including, Revit Architecture, MEP, and Structure. Titan AEC worked closely with the Design Team from Design Development through Construction Administration with building the models, maintaining models, analyzing and troubleshooting complex model issues.
