UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay

  • New 900,000ft2 teaching hospital to serve the needs of women, children, and cancer patients.
  • Certified LEED Gold.
  • First Integrated Project Delivery project for the University of California.

Arup worked closely with Stantec on the design of the new hospital complex at the University of California San Francisco’s (UCSF) Mission Bay Campus. We provided structural (for the outpatient and energy centre buildings), mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering for the $1.3bn hospital complex.

The new complex allowed the medical centre to expand its clinical presence in San Francisco and Northern California while strengthening its renowned programmes for women, children, and cancer patients. The hospital’s integration with the existing biomedical research campus will strengthen collaboration among basic scientists, clinical researchers, and physicians to bring new discoveries to patients faster.

Specific goals for the project included:

  • The creation of rooftop gardens for patients and staff in an urban site that increases biodiversity and provides therapeutic environments.
  • Using only non-potable water for irrigation.
  • A 50% reduction in energy use compared to a typical US hospital.
  • Setting a clear protocol for assessing the health impacts of materials.
  • Abundant access to daylight, fresh air and green space for all patient, caregiver, and public areas.
