PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend
PeaceHealth worked with Otak CPM to create a vision that reflected their mission and incorporated environmentally friendly design throughout the 160-acre site. Sacred Heart was Oregon’s largest construction project in 2006. The 1.8-million-square-foot, 432-bed hospital complex includes a 1.2-million-square-foot acute care tower; the Oregon Heart & Vascular Institute; a central utility plant; two 120,000-square-foot medical office buildings, including Northwest Specialty Clinic and the RiverBend Pavillion connected to the main building via skybridges; and two parking structures with more than 1,000 spaces.
With sustainability and environmentally friendly design a large focus, the facility featured seven rooftop gardens to provide greenscapes and reduce the amount of runoff entering the city stormwater system. The project also included an innovative, chemical-free cooling water treatment system; natural daylight throughout the facility; and eco-friendly materials. Otak CPM worked across the project disciplines to implement sustainability measures like protecting salmon-safe streams throughout construction, preserving 86% of the Douglas Fir groves, and creating a sustainable stormwater facility to protect the groundwater supply.
“Otak CPM was invaluable during this entire process. Their attention to detail and experience in the construction arena provided the additional resources to ensure a timely completion and a superior product. The project finished under budget and nine weeks ahead of schedule.”
