Responding to the VA’s need for expanding patient services and their concerns regarding the site’s active seismic zone, Caddell added 320,000-SF of new floor space while installing systems to protect the medical complex from major earthquake damage. The phased project was performed while the existing facilities continued to provide patient care – requiring extremely close coordination among the engineer, VA professional staff, Owner, and the dozens of on-site subcontractors.  Caddell installed state-of-the-art seismic protection upgrades primarily consisting of several thousand tons of concrete shear walls (averaging 14” thick) and over 4,000 tons of structural and reinforcing steel.  Caddell also constructed a completely new six-story hospital addition as well as a new transformer and power generation building.  $68.5M
