Overview

The USC Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience is a cutting-edge research facility that connects a divergent group of scientists and engineers to pursue new frontiers in medicine and health.

CSI Electrical Contractors, Inc. partnered with DPR Construction to execute all electrical construction on this 190,000 SF research facility on four levels above grade and one basement level. CSI Electrical Contractors, Inc. provided Design-Assist on the core and shell along with the 90,000 SF interior buildout over 26 months plus the added 20,000 SF of cleanroom space and 40,000 SF of wet labs.

Project Highlights

This project featured cleanrooms and imaging which required extensive electromagnetic interference (EMI) mitigation considerations that needed the use of GRC (overhead) and PVC Coated GRC (underground) conduits for feeders and branch circuits throughout the basement.

The cleanroom construction also proved to be an extremely difficult project beginning with soil testing to determine the best location to insulate the room from vibrations from the nearby Metro Expo Line light rail. There was a considerable amount of work done to protect the lab which included installing a 3-foot concrete slab for the building’s base, a dedicated duct system which if spread out would span 6 miles if laid from end to end, and using the utmost scrutiny following cleanroom protocol.

In addition, the project included a Toxic Gas Monitoring System, VESDA smoke detection system, and modified fire alarm sequence of operations that allowed area-specific mechanical shutdowns in lieu of a global shutdown sequence.

Overview

To serve the growing community and aging population, the Henry Mayo Hewhall Hospital had to expand.

As part of their major long-term planning project, the Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital began construction on a new inpatient Patient Tower in 2016. Set to open in 2019, the Patient Tower will include up to 142 additional patient beds, a new 29-bed Women’s Services Unit, and three new medical/surgical units with 30 new medical/surgical beds in each unit. The Patient Tower will also include a permanent rooftop helipad with direct access to the Emergency Department and expanded laboratory and materials management space.

In support of the Patient Tower, a new loading dock and central utility plant were also constructed.

CSI Electrical Contractors, Inc. teamed up with Bernards and HMC Architects to provide all electrical construction on this project along with partnering with M-E Engineers for electrical engineering. Our team installed all low voltage systems including fire alarm, structured cabling, nurse call, security, real time location system, public address, and emergency responder DAS.

City of Hope is a world leader in the research and treatment of cancer, diabetes, and other serious diseases.

Ranked as one of the nation’s “Best Hospitals” in cancer by U.S. News & World Report for more than a decade, City of Hope delivers scientific miracles that make lives whole again.

CSI Electrical Contractors, Inc. partnered with DPR Construction to deliver design build tenant improvements to this 140,000 SF project beginning with a 10,000 SF dry lab tenant improvement to help researchers begin work in the facility quickly. The project also included the renovation of an existing 2-story commercial office building to a state-of-the-art cancer research facility which included a new ground-up central utility plan to support the new lab space.
