Since its initial construction in 1950, Stanford University’s School of Medicine (SoM) has experienced significant growth. Following development of a master plan, the SoM centralized campus services and constructed a central loading dock. Kleinfelder worked with the SoM to integrate its new dock into the existing service infrastructure, while mitigating conflicts between pedestrians and vehicle traffic.
Kleinfelder helped the SoM achieve its vision of serving a campus expected to add more than one million square feet of space over the next decade. Our detailed evaluation and analysis resulted in designs that improved efficiency of service operations, while increasing safety for pedestrians, vehicles, and bicycles.
