The complex includes a 500,000 sq ft hospital, a central utilities plant, and a new parking structure. SGH consulted on the design for below-grade waterproofing, rain screen cladding assemblies, curtain wall and window assemblies, inverted roof membrane assemblies, and vegetative roofing assemblies. Highlights of our design-phase services include the following:
Recommending enclosure materials
Developing details to integrate the various enclosure systems
Reviewing construction documents and providing recommendations to improve performance of the building enclosure
Collaborating with the owner, architect, and design-build contractor to develop a design that balances cost and performance expectations
During construction, SGH provided full-time monitoring of the below-grade waterproofing installation and consulted on a laboratory performance mockup. We collaborated with the design-build contractor throughout construction and worked with various trades to resolve building enclosure constructability issues.
