The two-story expansion with one-story connecting link was comprised of a composite steel beam and concrete floor and an open web steel joist roof.  The lateral system utilized a combination of masonry shear walls, steel braced frames, and steel moment frames.  In addition to design of the new structure, structural design assistance was also provided for two new and one modified operable partition inside the existing hospital facility.


Civil design for the project consisted of grading, drainage, erosion control, utility and paving designs for the multi-story addition to the existing Hudson Hospital.  Design challenges included re-routing existing water and sanitary services to the existing hospital and maintenance building, relocating the existing main entry from a four lane roadway to a two lane roadway, and assisting the contractor in phasing the construction to allow continued access to the hospital. 


Additionally, work was taking place near an existing helipad; the civil design had to limit/restrict changes that could affect flight paths or sight lines. The new intersection/entry was designed using the latest Wisconsin DOT roundabout criteria.
