Project Description: 

The Sacred Heart Medical Center is located at the RiverBend campus in Springfield, Oregon.

campus, including an 800,000 SF, 500-bed hospital, 360,000 SF – six-story
OHVI, attached medical buildings, parking structures, free-standing central
utility plant and an off-street path system.

Scope of Services: 

Code Consulting and Pre-Planning Services

  • Provided analysis to the owners regarding the statewide code change timing process. Buildings were initially designed under the UBC provisions. Clair was able to work with the owners, local jurisdiction, and project design professionals to provide a code comparison and propose the project utilizing the more updated IBC provisions as an AM&M approach for the project. This approach provided significant cost savings to the owners.
  • During the pre-planning review, Clair was able to outline a streamlined process for the formal plan review, inspection, and project administration services to be provided during AHJ permitting activities.
