Healthcare Design - September 2016 - 53


Water, which is a central
theme throughout the
building, is symbolic of
purity, fertility, healing,
and adaptability. A reflecting pool and fountain
sit at the most prominent
edge of the site.

Overall, there's a sense of harmony between
the new and the old, says Carl Beers, senior vice
president and Florida health practice group
leader at HKS (Orlando).
"There's a very distinct softness that's playfully juxtaposed against the campus' more solemn buildings," adds Teresa Campbell, the HKS
design principal who oversaw the project. "The
building becomes a symbol for campus unity and
connectivity, much like women's roles within our
lives." Positioned at the terminus of a looped entry drive, the women's tower maintains a physical
connection to the main hospital, the campus, the
city, and beyond. "A multistory concourse flows
from the existing hospital and transitions upward to a glass pedestrian bridge as it floats above
a reflecting pool, whose life-giving water was the
inspiration for the project," Campbell says. An
outside fountain near the building's chapel supports that inspiration, as well.
Beyond aesthetics, the site required special
considerations to drown out noise and vibrations from a nearby major railroad line serving
both freight and commuter trains. Designers
wanted to shield adult patients and newborns
from these distractions and also recognized the
heightened sensitivities of premature babies in
the neonatal intensive care unit.
To minimize vibration, engineers relied on a
cast-in-place concrete structural system. Its inherent mass and stiffness met vibration criteria
suitable for sensitive sleep areas and typical operating rooms. On the second floor, which houses
13 operating rooms for minimally invasive surgery and robotic surgery, engineers added framing to meet more stringent criteria and to further
reduce vibrations, says Kevin G. Casey, a structural engineer with Paul J. Ford and Co. (Orlando).
 "The high magnification required for these
surgical techniques is sensitive to vibrations
that are beyond human perception," Casey explains. By loading the structural model of the
building with the measured ground response of
train-induced vibrations, engineers were able to
determine if the structure's design was conducive to patient comfort and surgical procedures.
Adding an extra pane of glass to create triplepane windows was another effort used to block
noise on the side of the building facing the railroad, he says.

Hospital leadership wanted to make an impression on patients and visitors right from the beginning, taking them from the parking garage
to a pedestrian bridge and escalator down to the
