Centinela Hospital Medical Center

Centinela Hospital Medical Center

Inglewood, CA

Project Overview

This project consisted of an emergency department expansion and remodel, new laboratory serving both hospital campus and outside medical facilities, a complete overhaul of emergency power system, and seismic improvement of an existing eight-story tower. The seismic improvement design included the installation of a Tubex Pile structural foundation system, a system never before utilized in any hospitals in California within the OSHPD jurisdiction. The scope of work includes the installation of 144 Tubex Piles -- depth of 60+ feet below, topped with a concrete cap footing and new concrete shear walls to create a new foundation system for the tower. All construction took place while the hospital was fully occupied and operational.
