BIM for New Northwest Tower and Parking Facility

Established nearly 65 years ago, St. Jude Medical Center has grown into one of Southern California’s most respected and technologically-advanced hospitals. To accommodate its growth, St. Jude is doing a $260-million expansion including a 200,000 SF hospital tower, a 14,000 SF central utility plant and expanding an existing parking structure to 672 spaces.

As a part of a team, Psomas provided civil engineering and surveying services for the expansion as well as BIM services including:

  • Surveyed existing building facades, interiors and utilities using conventional and reflectorless survey equipment, sonar, ground penetrating radar, pipe cameras, electromagnetics and potholing.
  • Modeled existing and proposed site.
  • Collected individual discipline 3D models and assembled them into one georeferenced Master Model.
  • Provided site clash detection coordination with design team and contractor.
