The Acute Tower Replacement (ATR) project brought Highland Hospital into compliance with the Alfred E. Alquist Hospital Facilities Seismic Safety Act of 1973 and the Senate Bills 1953 and 306, which require all acute care hospital buildings meet seismic-safety requirements by 2020. In addition, the project facilitated Highland Hospital to provide healthcare in a new state-of-the-art building. The project included three key phases:
- New Highland Care Pavilion
- New Acute Tower and Central Utility Plant
- Demolition of Building H, Construction of Link, and SiteworkThe project is designed with an emphasis on sustainability and energy efficiency (“green” design). Another key design criterion is uninterrupted, continuous service to the community.
