Replacing an Aging State Hospital with a Modern, Home‑Like Facility That Is Welcoming and Secure

Oregon State Hospital Replacement

Hoffman built this modern facility that is welcoming as well as secure, while preserving the historic architecture of the existing hospital. The 620-bed facility reflects new ideas in evidence-based treatment of psychiatric disorders. Teamwork and collaboration brought the project in 3% under budget. Hoffman’s multi-discipline value engineering study identified $43.7 million in cost saving ideas.

Hoffman was tasked with replacing the aging State Hospital with a modern, home-like facility that is welcoming as well as secure, while preserving the historic architecture of the existing hospital. The design incorporates the historic Kirkbride (including the cupola), a portion of which dates to 1883. The new facility houses a wide variety of psychiatric patients, including some who require a secure environment. The 620-bed facility reflects new ideas in evidence-based treatment of psychiatric disorders. It includes multiple units designed in a modern “treatment mall” style; patients from each area go to their “mall” for medical services each day, and a central “downtown” features a gym, cafe, store, large public spaces, and other shared facilities. The 100-acre site encompasses 750,000 SF of buildings. Hoffman also built a $25 million, 90,000 SF support building as part of the development of the new State Hospital campus. The building includes a kitchen, gymnasium and vocational center, as well as the campus’s Central Utility Plant. Scope also included a 1,624 SF server room. The cooling is achieved by two Liebert self-contained air conditioning units with ducted supply above the ceiling and a return plenum in the ceiling.

Challenge

Relocating all staff and patients, respectfully modernizing iconic buildings, fulfilling unique safety requirements, and demonstrating to the taxpayer value for every dollar spent.

Solution

In a highly collaborative preconstruction process, Hoffman pulled in key subcontractors, reached out to community partners, and established a dialogue with building users and other stakeholders. The team came together around a common goal: capture best value for Oregon’s taxpayers, in a facility that reflects the State’s commitment to a compassionate treatment model. Hoffman helped leverage the IPD approach to meet the State’s goals of maximizing inclusion and investing in local companies. Over 14% of the project’s total cost of $303 million was contracted to MWESB firms.
