The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has selected the joint-venture team of ZGF Architects and LEO A DALY to design major expansions and upgrades to the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Portland, Oregon.
The complex project, to be built in phases over the next decade, includes a new specialty care clinic; seismic and functional upgrades of the 672,370 square foot hospital, including potential replacement of the ceramic tile exterior; seismic upgrade of a 137,714 square foot administration/research lab building; central utility plant upgrades or replacement; and structured parking.
“Exceptional design is integral to providing quality care to Veterans. Our team combines over 1,500 design professionals to fulfill our personal commitment to outstanding service and responsible management of VA resources, budget and schedule,” said Josh Theodore, EDAC, global health practice leader with LEO A DALY.
The medical center, designed over 30 years ago by ZGF and SOM, sits atop Marquam Hill adjacent to Oregon Health & Science University, and will pose challenging topographical, geotechnical and constructability challenges.
“This joint venture team combines the perfect mix of local knowledge, healthcare experience and creativity to meet the Portland VA’s mission to deliver uplifting healing environments that will improve the lives of Veterans and the operations of the campus,” said Karl Sonnenberg, AIA, ACHA, partner with ZGF.
Both ZGF and LEO A DALY are nationally recognized for innovative medical design and planning. ZGF offers a strong local presence, with 270 employees in Portland and a 35-year history working on Marquam Hill. LEO A DALY has 70 years of VA experience and an expertise in space-constrained, existing operational campuses. The firm’s past work includes the post-Katrina rebuild of the VA Biloxi campus and the seismic upgrade of VA West Los Angeles.
