VA Palo Alto Healthcare System
VA Palo Alto underwent an expansion to enhance the health care system for veterans, including construction of a 325,000 SF ambulatory care center, 174,000 SF polytrauma/blind rehabilitation center, 95,000 SF research facility, and 30,000 SF recreational therapy building. The expansion also added a radiology addition to the hospital, two parking structures, several utilities buildings, a water supply tank, and new utilities and roadways. Langan explored subsurface conditions by drilling borings and advancing CPTs, evaluated site issues and environmental conditions, sampled and analyzed soil and soil vapor, and prepared a groundwater management plan. We also observed and checked the installation of drilled pier foundations, footing excavations, building pad subgrade preparation, and utility trench backfill.
