Healthcare Facility Structural Engineering Services

Achieving Healthcare Facilities Architectural Excellence Starts with Structural Engineering

Lawson-Burke Structural Engineers (LBSE) provides structural engineering services for Healthcare Facilities projects that are under the jurisdiction of the California Office of Statewide Health Planning & Development (OSHPD). LBSE structural engineers deal with the structural analysis and design of health care elements that support or resist loads, working to create complex systems through the use of simple components.

California Building Code and OSHPD Regulation Compliant
ALL LBSE structural calculations, drawings, and equipment anchorage for elements installed in medical centers, hospitals, and skilled nursing facilities comply with the applicable California Building Codes and OSHPD regulations. Equipment includes–but is not limited to–roof mounted, overhead mounted, wall mounted and floor mounted systems.

Structural Analysis When Equipment or Facility Changes
Because of the ever-changing complexities of CA building codes and OSHPD regulations, movement or addition of new equipment requires up-to-date expertise in healthcare facility structural engineering. Lawson-Burke Structural Engineers provides CA Healthcare Facilities structural analysis of existing framing systems and, if necessary, details upgrades for support due to modified loads from new/larger equipment.

 Recent Healthcare Facilities Structural Engineering Services Projects include:
1. Garfield Medical - RF Laboratory
2. Keck Medical Center of USC - Sterile Processing Department upgrade
3. Alhambra Hospital - Sterile Processing equipment upgrades
4. USC Norman Topping Tower – Laboratory Remodel
5. Northridge Hospital Medical Center – Equipment anchorage
6. A number of skilled nursing facilities – Facility remodels/upgrades, equipment anchorage as well as ADA accessibility upgrades.

When providing structural engineering services in medical centers, hospitals, laboratories, or skilled nursing facilities, Lawson Burke works closely with Architects, Contractors, and Owners to provide the best solutions to complex design issues—while maintaining design integrity.
