UCSF Nancy Friend Pritzker Psychiatry Building

A critical link in UCSF’s mission to destigmatize behavioral healthcare and support community mental health efforts, the OSHPD III building, located at 675 18th Street, features space for outpatient clinical care related to pediatric, neurology, and pre-term birth obstetric clinics, an auditorium and conference room, a central atrium, ground-floor retail, and administrative work space. Langan performed multi-phase geotechnical investigations and environmental site characterizations for the project. Our subsurface explorations identified several challenges, including up to 20 feet of uncontrolled fill, steeply sloping bedrock, contaminated soil, and more. We developed design-level recommendations with the results from our investigations, helped the project gain swift approval from the UC Seismic Review Committee, and provided environmental soil sampling.
