Healthcare Center Campus-wide Renovation and Additions

LEED Certified to LEED Gold Certified

The project: A $418 million renovation and campus beautification project added a Wellness & Aquatic Therapy Center, outpatient facilities, and expanded the inpatient areas to improve seismic safety.

The goal: Upgrade the campus with technologically advanced facilities and increase accessibility for patients and the surrounding community to secure Rancho Los Amigos’ future as one of the top-ranked rehabilitation hospitals in the nation.

Project approach: Design and construction of the campus was completed via design-build and design-bid-build delivery methods and was done in two phases. IMEG provided engineering design services for Phase 1 and provided due diligence for Phase 2.

Project highlights: Phase 1 (completed via design-build delivery) included the demolition of multiple campus buildings, including two major facilities, and the construction of new buildings on the demolished site. New buildings included the LEED Gold, 13,000-sf Wellness & Aquatic Therapy Center; new campus entry plaza; LEED Silver, 12,000-sf warehouse; LEED Certified, 103,000-sf, three-story outpatient building; LEED Certified, 40,000-sf Jacqueline Perry Institute (JPI) addition and first-floor remodel; parking structure expansion; and re-routed utilities that were buried or placed adjacent to the Phase 1 area. Utility re-routing was completed while maintaining continuity of services for the campus.

Phase 2 involved the LEED Silver, 64,804-sf renovation of the historical Harriman Building; LEED Gold, 49,221-sf renovation of the Support Services building; Preparation of demolition drawings for site utilities of various buildings; and design of various utilities, such as space cooling, heating hot water distribution, steam, and condensate; domestic cold and hot water, recirculating line, medical and natural gas, and industrial air into campus tunnels; and electrical systems, including normal and emergency power. Additional campus improvements spanning the 42-acre site followed, along with the decommissioning and demolition of several OSHPD buildings.
