The addition to the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital is a new three-story patient tower with an attached Diagnostic and Treatment Center. The hospital’s healing environment features natural light, increased green space and environmentally sensitive elements.
The hospital features 337 spacious private rooms, numerous meditation areas and gardens, including a “River of Life” flowing through the central gardens. This addition tripled the capacity in the Emergency Department, included air ambulance services and consolidated pediatric services in Cottage Children’s Hospital, including a Pediatric Multi-Specialty Clinic.
Pan-Pacific’s Design-Assist services were able to save nearly $1 million through our value analysis process and constructability reviews which allowed certain systems to be routed more effectively. The project was detailed and fully coordinated in 3D CAD which allowed us to develop our prefabrication drawings reducing field labor costs. We also utilized 3D CAD to establish layout for our Trimble unit which uses x and y coordinates to designate sleeve and insert points.
