;UCSD TOPS OUT 10-STORY JACOBS MEDICAL CENTER
The Univ. of California, San Diego (UCSD) recently “topped out”
the largest hospital project in southern California. Slated for opening in 2016, the $839 million Jacobs Medical Center will include
three specialized hospitals: the Hospital for Advanced Surgery, the
Hospital for Cancer Care and the Hospital for Women and Infants.
At the event, special guests signed a steel construction beam,
which was then hoisted to the top of the 10-story, 509,500-sf
structure. Construction on the building began in January 2012.
Cannon Design was commissioned to provide programming,
planning and design services for the major expansion and renovation project at UCSD Health System. Jacobs Medical Center,
part of UCSD Health System, will house 245 patient beds, when
it opens in 2016, and is part of a multi-billion dollar university
investment in the future of health care for the region.
; UPENN OPENS WEISS/MANFREDI-DESIGNED NANOTECH
The Univ. of Pennsylvania opened a new facility for advanced
research, education and public-private partnerships in nanotechnology. Faculty from the School of Engineering and Applied
Science and the School of Arts and Sciences will make use
of the 78,000-sf Krishna P. Singh Center for Nanotechnology’s characterization and fabrication suites. The new facility
includes a 10,000-sf bay/chase cleanroom, a 6,500-sf foot
characterization suite and 12,000 sf of lab modules. The characterization facility is situated on bedrock, 18 ft below the
surface, to help minimize vibrations that would interfere with
its various atomic and electron microscopes. Its labs are also
designed to be isolated from temperature fluctuations, atmospheric turbulence and electromagnetic noise.
