University of California, Mt. Zion Campus, Medical Office Building and Osher Center

Expanding a commitment to integrative medicine, the new five-story building at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Mount Zion Campus houses the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine and the UCSF Division of General and Internal Medicine.  Understanding the correlation between health and the environment, the design team sought to promote healing through features such as daylighting, fresh air, and warm aesthetics that blend with the surrounding neighborhood.  SGH was the structural engineer of record for the project and consulted on aspects of the building enclosure.
