Legacy Emanuel Hospital
Geocon has completed several phases of work at this hospital campus. Projects have included geotechnical engineering investigations and site-specific seismic hazard evaluations for construction of a new 8-story children’s hospital building, a 6-story parking garage, 3-story central utility plant, service tunnel, hospital building addition, and a 5-story medical office building. Other facilities for which geotechnical engineering services were provided include a 3-story parking garage, a burn unit, the north emergency entrance, loading dock, and expanded ground-level parking.
Geocon Northwest also completed an expedited environmental assessment and decommissioning of drywells that were encountered during the excavation at the 5-story parking garage. One of these drywells was found to contain hazardous concentrations of lead within its contents. Our efforts prevented construction delays, and the drywells received regulatory closure from the Oregon DEQ.
Geocon has been working with Legacy Health Systems for over a decade. We have provided our services for several other hospital campuses, including Legacy Meridian, Legacy Mt. Hood, Legacy Good Samaritan, Legacy Swan Island, and Legacy Vancouver (WA).
