Abstract

A new integrated 289-bed hospital complex in San Francisco, the first phase of which is set for completion in 2014, will embrace a wide range of sustainable technologies and principles, with the key to the design being early involvement with, and buy-in from, all parties involved, to, a project-specific "sustainability plan". Here key project participants Alisdair McGregor and Afaan Naqvi, of the San Francisco offices of Arup, and Tyler Krehlik of Anshen + Allen, describe how a rigorous planning and design process should result in the new UCSF Mission Bay Hospital meeting tough environmental goals, while providing a highly therapeutic environment that stimulates and speeds patient recovery.
