U of California-Davis starts demolition for $3B tower

Construction crews began demolishing temporary offices to build a nearly $3.8 billion tower at Sacramento-based University of California Davis Medical Center, the Sacramento Bee reported May 10.

The 14-story tower will replace parts of the hospital that don't meet earthquake-resistance standards that will go into effect in 2030. It will also have a five-story pavilion connecting to the medical center and will triple its intensive care unit abilities.

The 1 million-square-foot project includes operating rooms, an imaging center, an expanded pharmacy, more burn care units and about 400 single-patient rooms. With the expansion, the facility will have 675 to 700 inpatient beds, compared to 646 now.

The tower will open in 2030, according to the report.
