Construction is about to get underway with Whiting Turner on Kaiser Permanente’s Moreno Valley Expansion, a CO Architects-designed project that includes a new seismically separated two-level Diagnostic and Treatment (D&T) building as well as an addition to the Moreno Valley Medical Center (MVMC) campus. In total, the effort encompasses 93,192 square feet of new construction and 20,300 square feet of demolition/make-ready work.
The D&T building will be steel framed with composite metal decks, and lateral systems include ConXtech bolted moment frame connections. The lower level is a half basement and utilizes special concrete shear walls.
To support the D&T, a new 20,244 square foot, one-level central utility plant – also known as the Energy Center (EC) – will also be constructed with an open equipment yard. The EC will have a steel framed roof with composite metal decks supported by perimeter CMU walls detailed as Special Masonry Shear walls for lateral resistance.
Great job to Senior Project Manager and team leader Justin Chung and the entire Moreno Valley team.
