Kaiser Foundation Hospital - Seismic Repair & Upgrade

Woodland Hills, CA

Structural remediation work to 341 moment frame connections.  Six story 500,000 sf acute care hospital.  (OSHPD)

During preconstruction, the team mapped every utility located above the corridors and ceilings in the hospital to create as-built mechanical and electrical drawings.  Every beam to column steel connection was ultra sonically tested to determine its structural integrity.

During construction, a temporary power system was run to the building roofs to support welding equipment and air handlers to be used on the project.  The building was scaffolded and the exterior curtain wall removed for construction access and ventilation.  An elaborate conditioned air system was installed to insure that there was no impact to the facilities’ own air conditioning system.  Conflicting utilities such as conduit, water piping, medical gases and air conditioning ductwork were relocated to make room for the containment enclosure to be built around each damaged beam-to-column connection.

Repairs typically consist of vaporizing the old welded connection through a method of air arcing and replacing the damaged weld with modern techniques which have resulted in a more structurally superior connection than the facility had originally.  Ultra sonic testing and detailed inspection follow each and every step of the welding process.

Once the connection has been repaired, the containment enclosure is removed, and the utilities are returned to their original configuration and the hospitals finishes are restored.  Utility relocation involved 210 locations and 208 welding areas.

Kaiser Permanente presented to the Project Team of the Kaiser Woodland Hills Medical Center Seismic Strengthening, the “Team Excellence Award”.  Annually, Kaiser Permanente recognizes the accomplishments of a team that provides continuous, outstanding performance.  The criteria for the award were: team work; commitment to increase accountability for results; and cost savings.
