Innovative structural design of new VA healthcare facility featured in Modern Steel Construction.
Dazzling in appearance and rich with symbolic architecture, the new Omaha VA Ambulatory Care Center is more than meets the eye. The project’s lead structural engineer, Ryan Curtis, PE, wrote about its sophisticated structural design in the latest Modern Steel Construction – the magazine of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), a non-partisan, not-for-profit technical institute and trade association.
The steel-framed facility includes a multi-story curtain wall, blast-hardened facades, architecturally exposed structural steel (AESS) framing members, vibration-designed operating room structural bays, soil-nail walls, and varying types of foundation systems serving multiple types of structures.
The healthcare facility was funded through a public-private partnership (P3), making it a trailblazing project. Congress passed the CHIP IN for Vets Act in 2016, which allowed private dollars to partially fund and expedite the project for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Local business leaders led the charge, contributing $30 million of the $86 million cost.Its unique delivery provided for unique features such as the use of architecturally exposed structural steel (AESS) on canopies.
The LEO A DALY design team also worked with frontline stakeholders (doctors, nurses and administrators) to lay out the facility according to actual need and usage. This resulted in operating rooms on the third floor, necessitating precision vibration control in the structural design.
Learn more about the facility’s steel structural design in Ryan’s article, “Serving Veterans,” in the August 2020 issue of the magazine.
