For nearly 10 years, Kleinfelder has provided geotechnical, materials testing, and environmental services on the four Scripps Health campuses in San Diego County. One of the top 15 health systems in the U.S., Scripps relies on Kleinfelder’s multi-faceted expertise to provide foundational engineering solutions for its award-winning healthcare platform.
With four hospitals on five campuses, dozens of outpatient clinics, and thousands of affiliated physicians, Scripps Health needed a reliable partner to provide engineering solutions for its network of care and research centers. Located in one of California’s largest coastal counties, Scripps deals with at-risk seismic terrain in project planning and construction. Scripps sought to address these hazards up front with solid, safe facilities for delivering consistent care to its community of patients.
Kleinfelder’s local team of earthquake experts, familiar with the San Diego coast’s fickle foundations, provided a range of services on more than 14 Scripps projects. Our work has included site investigations and excavation, geohazard evaluations, fault and soil analysis, slope stability, risk-based analysis, foundation engineering, ground improvement, and more. Kleinfelder’s equally proficient environmental team provides continuing environmental site assessments, environmental impact studies, and hazardous materials monitoring on more than nine Scripps campuses.
Kleinfelder’s complete package of engineering services enables Scripps to maintain its legacy as a nationally ranked healthcare provider, without stretching its limits or its budget. By meeting several of its needs through one trusted partnership, Scripps can continue providing San Diego County with the most current, effective care available.
