Integrating research and clinical care to encourage collaboration between researchers and medical teams
Precision, Transparency, Integration, and Activation. Inspired by these design principles, Stantec is completing the complex puzzle for UCSF at the Mission Bay Campus with the Precision Cancer Medicine Building (PCMB). Our relationship with the site goes back to 2007, when we began design on the recently-completed Medical Center at Mission Bay.
The design elegantly draws from the existing building, as the strong horizontal lines of the Gateway MOB continue through to PCMB, alternating with glass fins inspired by the children’s hospital. Transparency echoes the building’s program, with more privacy at street level and a generous use of glass on the upper infusion floors. The massing is set back dramatically at the edges to create an exciting urban street-level experience.
This building will consolidate UCSF’s current solid tumor practices. In addition to clinic space for most cancers, it will house chemotherapy infusion, radiology, pathology, radiation oncology, blood draw, a patient resource center, and support services. Bringing these practices together at Mission Bay, will integrate research and clinical care and encourage collaboration between researchers and medical teams
The design team leveraged digital technology to effectively collaborate and communicate among all stakeholders. Autodesk's cloud-based BIM 360 platform enabled shared digital models with teams working in multiple locations, facilitating better collaboration and faster communication of design updates. Virtual Reality visualizations for both design charettes and client presentations, using a combination of Enscape and Revit, made it easy for stakeholders to understand the space in an immersive environment. The team determined the model data requirements and used Ideate tools and the COBie add-in for Revit to import and export the data as needed to facilitate the client’s ongoing use of the BIM model for facilities management activities.
