Entrance Flooring Systems
Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital & Trauma Center
The Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, commonly referred to as ‘The General’, has been serving the city and Northern San Mateo counties for decades. As a top medical training and research facility as well as the area’s only Level 1 Trauma Center, the hospital serves over 100,000 patients annually. Located on the San Andreas fault line, California Building Code mandates the strict seismic standards for new construction to ensure the hospital remains operational should an earthquake occur. Additionally, to achieve its goal of obtaining LEED Gold Certification, environmentally responsible products were selected.
With the most advanced seismic designs available, The General is now one of the largest base isolated hospitals constructed in the United States. CS’ MACC system seamlessly connects the new hospital tower to the existing structure while the exterior moat covers visually unite the landscape and sidewalk with the structure. The architect chose CS Infill Sunshades for the exterior to allow sufficient, yet filtered light. Last, CS Floorometry 301 was chosen as the permanent entrance flooring system for the main entrance to create a positive first impression.See full case study
