Conco is once again an essential part of a team that is constructing the new Kaiser San Leandro Medical Center by providing concrete services.  The facility is scheduled to open this year.  The overall project consists of 740,000 sq. ft. of new construction, which includes a six-story, 436,000 sq. ft. hospital with 264 licensed, acute-care beds.  The Medical Center will also have a new central 30,000 sq. ft. utility plant to house the mechanical and electrical equipment.

The plan calls for an abundance of surface parking for up to 2,100 vehicles, and a 275,000 sq. ft. Hospital Support Building that is connected to the main hospital. The 63 acre lot is located just off the freeway, which makes it highly accessible, and the new Center will be a replacement for the old Kaiser Hayward Hospital.  Since the new construction covers only 30 acres, there is plenty of opportunity to showcase the scenic rolling hills on the property.

This is Kaiser’s eighth template hospital, and while it is still constructed to be site-specific, it reduces building costs by approximately $89 less per sq. ft.  The project is designed by Hawley Peterson & Snyder in association with AECOM partner, Ellerbe Becket.  The general contractor for the Medical Center is Rudolph & Sletton, Inc. and the engineer is Rutherford & Chekene.  This is Rudolph & Sletton’s third hospital project they have worked on with Kaiser over the last few years.  According to their website, “This ‘second generation’ template hospital, which reflects Kaiser Permanente’s program to establish standardized, yet customizable, state-of-the-art models for design and construction of its hospitals, includes the latest technology for patient care and support.”

Conco performed all of the structural concrete work for the project and belted and placed more than 18,000 tons of aggregate underslab material.  In addition, the project incorporated sustainable design features based on the Green Guide for Healthcare as well as environmentally responsible purchasing.  A prime example is during the demolition of the old building on the property; close to 97% of all waste was recycled on-site including grinding up old concrete.  It was used in the soil mixture process and for fill and pavement base.  It is estimated that 98,000 tons of construction waste material was diverted from landfills.

We got our start in the Bay Area in 1959 by offering clients the best value on a wide range of concrete services and products.  Since that time, we have steadily taken a leading role as one of the Bay Area’s top concrete contractors.

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.”*
