Hoag Health Center Irvine - Sand Canyon
In 2010, Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian opened Hoag Hospital Irvine to address the medical needs of one of Orange County’s largest cities. Since the hospital’s opening, surging population growth and changes in the healthcare delivery model created a demand for outpatient services within the Irvine community. Hoag worked strategically to select a site for an integrated outpatient care facility that would improve continuity of care and enhance the community’s overall well-being.
The project team secured a 12-acre plot adjacent to Hoag Hospital Irvine, which was leased from Southern California Edison and developed into a 4-building integrated care center. Each building was designed to support a separate element of Hoag’s outpatient delivery model.
The 12-acre site was originally zoned for agricultural use with overhead 66kV high voltage power lines servicing the surrounding community, running along a ¼ mile corridor. Through diligent coordination of project and government agency objectives, the team facilitated completion of the undergrounding challenge below the budget cap and within the agreed schedule in the master planned community of Irvine.
As part of the construction management team, California Commercial worked closely with the project architects and general contractors to ensure finishes were selected for initial upfront costs as well as long-term durability. California Commercial Engineering played a direct role in building management systems selection for energy consumption monitoring and zone programming. As a result, tenants have control over their climate, and the entire health center is heated and cooled efficiently. As a steward of Hoag's standards, California Commercial's project involvement created an on-brand experience for tenants and patients. Pulling from past post-occupancy "lessons learned" documents, the team implemented strategies to ensure the developer's and end-users' needs were incorporated into the project design.
