New Specialty Care Clinic, Seismic Upgrades to VA Medical Center in Portland to be Phased over Next Decade

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has selected the joint-venture team of ZGF Architects and Leo A Daly to design major expansions and upgrades to the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Portland, Oregon.

The complex project, to be built in phases over the next decade, includes a new specialty care clinic; seismic and functional upgrades of the 672,370-square-foot hospital, including potential replacement of the ceramic tile exterior; seismic upgrade of a 137,714-square-foot administration/research lab building; central utility plant upgrades or replacement and structured parking.

The medical center, designed over 30 years ago by ZGF and SOM, sits atop Marquam Hill adjacent to Oregon Health & Science University, and will pose challenging topographical, geotechnical and constructability challenges.
