San Francisco General Hospital

Challenge

Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, known as ‘The General,’ is located along the San Andreas Fault Line. California’s building codes mandate that a hospital must remain operational in the event of an earthquake, so meeting these strict seismic standards was key for Fong & Chan Architects. The goal of obtaining LEED® Gold Certification was also at the forefront of the project, so environmentally responsible products were chosen to accomplish this.

Solution

The General is one of the largest base-isolated structures in the U.S. and uses the most advanced seismic designs available, allowing it to glide 30” in every direction during a seismic event. Fong and Chan Architects chose our expansion joint covers to allow for this movement, and Van-Mulder Sheet Metal, Inc. from Hayward, CA handled the installation. CS’ multi-axial corridor cover (MACC) system seamlessly connects the new hospital tower to the existing structure while the exterior moat covers visually unite the landscape and sidewalk to it.

PARTNERING TO CREATE CUTTING EDGE SOLUTIONS

The Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, known as ‘The General’, has been serving the city and Northern San Mateo counties for decades, and is the area’s only Level 1 Trauma Center. The hospital serves over 100,000 patients annually, and is a top medical training and research facility. The new nine-story acute care hospital connects to the existing hospital,making this a feat of construction, design and creativity. This was possible due in large part to a significant donation from Facebook founder,Mark Zuckerberg, and his wife, Priscilla Chan.
