PROJECT OBJECTIVE

Renovate 3 basement floors of an existing, high-rise Medical Office Building at Naval Medical Center San Diego to meet the new space and functional requirements of 26 Departments.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Ravatt Albrecht & Associates provided complete demolition and renovation of the 3 basement floors (93,720 sq. ft.) in an existing high-rise Medical Office Building as well as an off-site building renovation for the relocation of the Naval Drug Screening Lab.

Work included a comprehensive seven-phase plan that created a temporary modular space for two main departments and reconstructed at ½ floor increments to organize the temporary relocation and infill of 26 departments. The plan minimized disruption of the day-to-day operations in the building, including HVAC, power, and data/communication networks. The plan also addressed the removal of hazardous materials from the existing interiors.

The result is a demountable, partition office configuration for 26 departments with circulation patterns for improved way-finding and exit routes; renovated restrooms that comply with all environmental and accessibility codes; a new HVAC system with improved interior climate control, ventilation, and air quality; a new lighting system that simulates daylighting; and colorful interiors that enhance and improve work conditions.
