California Health Care Facility design build project

Share on:

GHD was the lead engineer for two major phases of the USD1 billion California Health Care Facility for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

The first phase consisted of an abatement, demolition, and site readiness project on which GHD worked with the architect on the preparation of plans, specifications, and estimates for the abatement and demolition of 15 buildings and site utilities, as well as the design of access roads, staging areas, security fencing and electronics, and power systems.

In the next phase of this project, GHD was the lead engineer on the design-build team responsible for the site grading with additional fencing and security systems, and new utility systems including natural gas, electrical, stormwater storage and pumping, water storage and distribution, wastewater collection, management, and disposal. GHD engineers engaged in an ongoing collaboration with all stakeholders from government representatives and regulators to all the design-build contractor team members.

This was a fast-track project, with GHD fielding multiple design teams to prepare five design-build submittal packages, expediting agency review and optimizing construction sequencing and cost savings.
