Value Delivered

We helped our customer develop a hospital campus that could operate independently should city power and water services become interrupted. We used our design-build and value engineering expertise to stay ahead of schedule and under budget while creating plumbing solutions for this 710,000-square-foot project.

Client Objectives 

Kaiser Permanente needed to build a new hospital campus, which included a six-story, 437,000-square-foot hospital; a six-story, 273,000-square-foot medical office building, and an underground parking facility. They needed the facility to be able to operate off-grid should an electrical emergency take place.


For this project, we installed:

  • An underground domestic water tank in case of city water failure
  • 3-story central plan with cogen, fuel oil, and natural gas
  • 51,972 feet of medical gas plumbing
  • 94,000 feet of copper pipe for plumbing
  • 58,000 square feet of cast iron pipe for plumbing
  • 41,233 feet of copper pipe for HVAC systems
  • 22,596 feet of welded, Victaulic, and stainless-steel pipe for HVAC systems
  • 522,526 pounds of round and rectangular ductwork
  • 40,534 pounds of welded ductwork
  • 699 variable air volume coils
  • 3,600 grills, registers, and diffusers
  • 871 fire smoke dampers
