Department of Veterans Affairs Acute Psychiatric Facility

Design Partnership
Project Type
Palo Alto, CA
80 Bed; 93,245 Square Feet

SANDIS provided civil engineering design services as well as surveying for the development of a new 80-bed, 76,000 s.f. facility on the VA Palo Alto Campus.  Along with designing the project to OSHPD standards, SANDIS provided design services for an existing storm drain main line that passed through the project site. As part of this project, the main was relocated into the camus loop road and passed around the project perimeter. Site drainage is collected in a piping network and connects into the main. The site was broken up into five main watershed areas which drained into the existing campus main line. Each lateral connection was sized to accommodate the predicted peak flow.
