Santa Clara Valley Medical Center
Location: Santa Clara County, California

SB 1953 Seismic Assessment of Valley Medical Center, Old Main Hospital Building. This seven-story concrete building was constructed in 1958. The County hired C+D Structural Engineers to provide the seismic assessment, retrofit strategies with different occupancy, license, and Earthquake Performance Level. The building is a seven-story reinforced concrete Main Hospital Building. This building included the patient beds, labs, surgery and support functions in the early years of the Hospital.

C+D used FEMA 273 and 274 Guidelines for the seismic vulnerability assessment, using push-over techniques. Similar technology was used with different earthquake intensity for design of retrofits for Collapse Prevention and Life Safety "Basic Safety Objective". The County intends to retrofit the building as part of the Long Range Campus Master Plan. Alternative projects retrofit and rehabilitation costs range from $42 to $82 million.
