Kaiser Permanente San Mateo Medical Offices

With a fast-paced schedule, this design/build project utilized an innovative framing system that shortened the building schedule by two weeks.

Customized Solution
  • This new 3-story, 66,000 s.f. medical office building utilizes the new moment frame system by ConXtech. Erected in under a week, without any field welding or field weld inspections, this system provided an economic and very flexible floor plan unencumbered by braces or structural walls. The innovative use of this new system also provided significant savings by shortening the construction schedule by approximately 2 weeks.
  • Originally a design-bid-build project, the model shifted to a design/build project during the design phase, thus accelerating the schedule. During this transition, Forell/Elsesser’s flexibility and efficient design practices helped to deliver a project that was on schedule and on budget.
