Winchester Medical Center Medical Office Building 1 (MOB1) AdditionClose
SKA provided multi-disciplinary services including structural peer review and design, building envelope commissioning, and quality assurance testing during construction.
As the structural engineer of record on the 70,600 sf four-story addition, design incorporated three elevated structural steel framed floors of occupiable space in addition to the floor slab on grade. The MOB1 addition is located on a sloping site and is laterally stabilized using structural steel moment frames. Interface with the existing MOB1 and linear accelerator vault required special accommodation of the new addition framing relative to the existing structure footprint and exterior walls.
On a separate contract, SKA provided exterior building envelope commissioning services during the construction of this new MOB1 addition. The scope of work included review of the building envelope elements noted in the construction drawings on planned site visits as well as review of material product submittals. Each site visit documented any non-compliance followed by communication with the architect of record, the construction manager and the owner on a weekly basis throughout construction.
As an additional service, the owner hired SKA for storefront and curtainwall air and water quality control testing of the newly installed fenestrations on the building.
