Location: San Diego, CA
Total Floor Area: 279,000 SF
Date Completed: 2011
LEED™ Certification: Certified

Project highlights include a surgical center, neonatal intensive care unit, cancer center, conference centers, and 84 beds.

The new 280,000-square-foot Acute Care Pavilion includes the latest design and technology. The finished product is providing the best medical care in a less stressful, healing environment for children and their families, while reducing the chances of infections and medical errors. This is the only hospital in Southern California to offer private glass-walled rooms, for critically ill newborns, in the intensive care unit.

The building provides outstanding indoor air quality, maximizes natural light, and utilizes high-efficiency air conditioning and mechanical equipment. This provides lower life-cycle operating costs for the hospital.

E Cube provided LEED fundamental and enhanced commissioning. This included commissioning at the design phase through occupancy. We commissioned the central plant additions, generator/emergency power plant, fire alarm, fire protection, smoke mode, electrical, lighting controls, medical gas and nurse call. We also assisted with the Office of Statewide Hospital Planning and Development (OSHPD) certification.

E-Cube was the commissioning authority on our recent hospital addition of approximately 280,000 S.F. E-Cube was a terrific partner and leader throughout this challenging construction. E-Cube’s management tools included easy to read tracking that allowed timely accountability of all trades. I recommend E-Cube as a Commissioning Authority on any healthcare construction projects.”

I would like to take this opportunity to say how professional your firm was during the commissioning portion of the Rady Children’s Hospital Acute Care Pavilion new tower project. I was the PM with McCarthy. It was such a pleasure working with your guys. Commissioning is a tough job, your company was great. So thank you for that! If I’m ever working on large projects requiring E-Cube type services, I will hope to work with your company!”
