St. Peter’s Hospital Hearst Pavilion
For St. Peter’s Hospital to continue to provide the very best health care services possible, it decided to move forward with its long-range Master Facility Plan, adding new patient care facilities while upgrading the Institution’s vast infrastructure.
Ryan Biggs | Clark Davis provided structural engineering services for the design of this $98 million project, which included 270,000 square feet of new floor space.
The project included the seven-story Hearst Pavilion housing patient rooms, operating rooms, procedure rooms, offices, mechanical rooms, and other support spaces. The project features a new main entrance canopy, a lobby, and a circulation corridor known as “Main Street.” Seven elevators are included for enhanced vertical circulation. Additions connect to and through eight previous generations of construction, requiring openings in and connections to existing buildings and complex expansion joints.
Poor soil conditions required a mat foundation under the Hearst Pavilion and lightweight concrete floor slabs. The building is a steel superstructure with moment frames to maximize usable space. The design incorporates metal stud exterior walls with brick and cast stone veneer to enhance the appearance while minimizing weight.
