Rutherford + Chekene has a long history of involvement as the structural engineer on the Vallejo site. The major expansion included a new five-story, 457,000 sf, 188-bed hospital tower and 60,000 sf of new construction and renovation to the existing tower. The project also included a four-story, 50,000 sf medical office building and a 45,000 sf non-OSHPD-reviewed multipurpose building. We completed more than 30,000 sf of new construction to the central utility plant to service the facility expansion.


Leavening peerless structural engineering skill with humor, philosophy, people skills and, above all, a consummate understanding of San Francisco's permitting process, [Alan] saw this project through.
