Conco has had the privilege to be a part of many high-profile projects throughout our long history.  Recently we had the opportunity to provide concrete services for the renowned Sandler Neurosciences Lab and Research Center, on the UCSF’s Mission Bay Campus.  The 5-story building is now home to the world’s leading clinical and research programs seeking cures for neurological disorders.  The total cost for the 237,000-square-foot, state-of-the art facility was $200 million and completed just last year.

The project contractor was the Clark Construction Group, and was designed and engineered by Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill, LLP.  Clark describes the building as featuring flexible design elements that consists of curtained walls, metal panels and precast concrete walls.  The foundation has over 400 structural support piles that go down 130 feet below ground to rest on bedrock.  The building meets and exceeds all seismic stability requirements and was designed to be highly energy efficient.  With all of its many attributes, it has been awarded the LEED-silver certification.

According to UCSF, the Center along with the nearby Arthur and Toni Rembe Rock Hall has presented opportunities for collaboration with Silicon Valley, the biotech industry and the pharmaceutical industry.  The Sandler is the proud to have a Nobel Prize recipient as well as many top researchers and scientists from around the world.  “This culminates a 10-year dream,” says Nobel laureate Stanley B. Prusiner, MD, director of the Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases, one of the programs that are housed in the building. “This building will bring together some of the best scientists in the world to work on these very prevalent diseases of the brain. The opportunity for major progress is tremendous.”

The Laguna Honda Hospital is one of the country’s largest skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities located in San Francisco, CA serving seniors and adults with disabilities.  The facility specializes in providing individualized, patient-focused long-term care, rehabilitation, hospice, and Alzheimer’s and HIV/AIDs care for 765 residents in 13 programs.

Laguna Honda Hospital - San Francisco

The 150-year-old hospital was recently expanded and extensively renovated under a 10-year-long plan that constructed three new state-of-the-art buildings.  The large project consisted of 500,000 sq. ft. of new construction and 150,000 sq. ft. of renovations.  Care was taken to stay true to some of the historical components of the hospital and the surrounding community as well as retaining a natural environment on the 62-acre campus. Conco was brought in to provide concrete services for the new construction.

The healthcare facility was the first hospital in California to be awarded LEED Silver certification.  Construction manager was the Turner Construction Company and the architects were Anshen+Allen Architects and Gordon H Chong & Partners.  The engineer was   Rutherford & Chekene Consulting Engineers.

The state-of-the-art facility now offers a home-like atmosphere comprised of units in which 15 patients reside.  Each unit has a common living area where patients can socialize, and each floor is made up of 4 units that join together to form neighborhoods to create a community of sorts.  Given that the average stay at the facility is 17 months, it is essential for patience to have a comfortable environment.

The new Rehabilitation Center contains two therapy pools and two gymnasiums.  The Esplanade is an indoor style boulevard that offers services such as “a café, a community theatre, two art studios, a multi-media library with a fireplace, barber and beauty shops, a tropical bird aviary, and a cafeteria with indoor and outdoor seating.”*
