Palo Alto Medical Foundation – Medical Office Building

Allana Buick & Bers, Inc. (ABB), was retained by the architect to provide waterproofing consulting services for below-grade and podium deck of a parking garage and Medical Office Building (MOB) owned by the Palo Alto Medical Foundation.

The Sunnyvale MOB will be a 120,000 SF building with below-grade parking, two levels of above-grade parking and a two-story building to contain offices, exam rooms and support space for comprehensive primary care and oncology.

ABB provided consulting services to the architect for all of the below-grade and podium deck waterproofing. This scope of work includes review of the plans in all phases and geotechnical reports to gain a full understanding of the project. Based on the information, we recommended a waterproofing system and provided system specifications. We met with the design team during the DD and CD phases to review details and building envelope integration.

ABB was subsequently retained by the owner (Sutter Health FPD) to provide construction phase services, including monitoring and administration. Our scope of work during this phase includes monitoring of the slab-on-grade waterproofing and, perimeter foundation wall waterproofing assembly.
