Looking to consolidate two existing locations, Sutter Health chose a site in San Francisco’s Cathedral Hill neighborhood for its new Van Ness Campus. The campus, which encompasses an entire city block, is anchored by a 274-bed hospital. Clad with a custom four-side structural glazed curtain wall, the hospital is the first to have such a curtain wall approved by the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development. The hospital is also the first to use an innovative damper system to improve the building’s earthquake performance. SGH consulted on the building enclosure design and performed a structural peer review of the damper system design.
