Presentation: St. Paul's Hospital – Seismic Upgrade

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 | 7pm to 9pm
Tickets: Admission is FREE but registration is required via Eventbrite
Location: St Paul's Hospital—Hurlburt Auditorium on the main level of the Providence Building; 1081 Burrard Street (enter by Burrard Street Entrance)

Heritage Vancouver and St. Paul's Hospital invite you to an evening of conversation about "St Paul's Hospital – Seismic Upgrade." In June of this year, the BC Government committed to the redevelopment of St Paul's Hospital in its current location. This means St. Paul's will see significant expansion and renovation over the coming years. The hospital is on our Top Ten Endangered Sites for 2012. Hopefully the recent funding news will turn St. Paul's into one of our "Heritage Success Stories."

One of the many challenges of redeveloping the hospital while maintaining operations will be the seismic upgrade of the existing structures. Bonnie Maples of Providence Health Care will provide a brief overview of the redevelopment context and John Sherstobitoff of Ausenco Sandwell, will outline the structural engineering options being considered.

For the historic Burrard buildings a "conventional" solution of concrete shear walls will be assessed against an "innovative" base isolation option. For the Providence buildings "internal" and "external" upgrade options which may incorporate viscous dampers will be compared. Animations of building performance, fundamentals of base isolation and dampening systems, constructability of solutions, and examples of similar applications will be presented.
