UC Davis Medical Center Hospital Seismic Demolition and Office Replacement Project
In 2015 Impact Sciences was retained by UC Davis to prepare a Focused Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the UC Davis Medical Center Hospital Seismic Demolition and Office Replacement Project on the UC Davis Sacramento Campus. The purpose of the proposed project is to improve seismic safety and provide replacement office space. Components of the project include construction of the North Addition 130,000 square feet office building, demolition of the 235,000 square feet North/South Hospital Wing, and demolition of the 20,000 square feet Housestaff building. In total, the project would reduce building area on the campus by approximately 125,000 square feet. Key environmental issues included impacts on historic period structures, and construction-phase air quality, noise, and traffic impacts. The EIR was prepared on a highly expedited schedule and was completed to the full satisfaction of UC Davis.
