CPMC Cathedral Hill

Once completed, the $2.5 billion Sutter Health California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC) Van Ness and Geary project will be a flagship medical center for San Francisco. The campus includes an acute care hospital, a medical office building (MOB) across the street, and an underground pedestrian tunnel to connect the two structures. A two- to three-level “moat” surrounds the basement’s isolated portion to structurally separate the hospital building from the surrounding ground. Key issues in the site’s development are maintaining stability and limiting excavation-induced deformations. Our services include geologic hazard evaluation, geotechnical investigation, earthquake engineering, Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessments, Environmental Contingency Plan, Soil Management Plan, and construction observation.
