NBBJ - Silverdale, WA
Expansion to the Harrison Medical Center of approx. 450,000 SF for a new state of the art hospital to accommodate outpatient medical and surgical services to Kitsap County. Includes large private patient rooms with dedicated guest accommodations (rooms average 310 SF providing elbow room for staff tending to patients and room for visiting/sleeping family), and critical acute care services including heart care, level III trauma center, integrated cancer center.
The lower levels will include diagnostic and treatment areas and the upper levels a 9-story inpatient care tower. Greenbusch (GBG) evaluated vibration tolerances in the operating suites and imaging areas and provided recommendations necessary to ensure adequate sound isolation in the surgery, patient exam rooms, inpatient rooms and the offices and Chapel (total of 242 beds). Acoustical design support is ongoing through construction.
GBG also performed an environmental noise review to evaluate potential noise impacts from the adjacent major highway, and designed mechanical noise mitigation treatments for all mechanical and chiller systems.
A second phase anticipated to be complete in 2023 will add another 74 beds, for a total of 336.
Sacred Heart Medical Center, Women's & Children's Centers
Mahlum Architects - Spokane, WA
Acoustical design of a new seven story West Wing for Women's Services and Surgery.
The building included a vibration-sensitive heart surgery pavilion built cantilever over a road, and a two story addition to the East Wing Children's Hospital.
Recommendations for interior finishes and noise and vibration control for the hospital mechanical systems, particularly those in the heart surgery pavilion which required unique vibration isolation schemes.
Harborview Bond Project Design & Const. (IEB & NJB)
NBBJ - Seattle, WA
The project consists of the Inpatient Expansion Building (IEB) and the new Ninth and Jefferson Building (NJB) across the street.
The design for IEB includes sound isolation of patient rooms and surgeries.
NJB includes sound isolation of labs, autopsy rooms, forensic gun fire, and the court and interview room.
Noise and vibration control of the mechanical systems serving the buildings was provided for both buildings.
