West County Behavioral Health Annex

San Pablo

Walter P Moore provided structural engineering services for a new 2-story, 20,800 medical office building and site improvements for Contra Costa County. This addition to the West County Health Center provides adult and child behavioral health services, in an annex building linked to the main facility by a covered walkway.  The project was delivered using Design-Build, incorporating lean project delivery strategies, with early contractor input into design approaches, constructability challenges and operational constraints.  The building is a structural steel frame with composite floor slab, supported on an auger pressure grouted pile foundation.  The seismic force resisting system is a Steel Special Moment Frame.
