Structural & Geotechnical Design of a General Hospital and Multilevel Car Parking in the Area of Half Moon Bay

Project Overview

Recently, the Half Moon Bay area is undergoing some remarkable developments. Many construction projects were launched in the area, notably around Al-Khaldiyah main road (e.g. PMU University, PMU accommodations, the new City, etc.). The construction of a hospital in the area (notably for emergency cases) becomes a necessity. Larger cities may have several hospitals of varying sizes and facilities. The best-known type of hospital is the general hospital, which is set up to deal with many kinds of disease and injury, and normally has an emergency to deal with immediate and urgent threats to health.
The main objectives of this project are to select the appropriate emplacement of the general hospital, to design the hospital structure (structure of three/four stories), and to design a multilevel car parking to be constructed in the Half Moon area. In this project, appropriate foundation systems are proposed and analyzed. The project includes a structural and a geotechnical design of the hospital structure and the car parking in addition to some access roads.

Project Objectives

The main objectives of this project are to select the appropriate emplacement of the general hospital, to design the hospital structure (structure of nine/twelve stories), and to design a multilevel car parking to be constructed in the Half Moon Bay area.
In this project, appropriate foundation systems are proposed and analyzed. The project includes a structural and a geotechnical design of the hospital structure and the car parking in addition to some access roads.
The project is composed by the following stages or parts:
  1. Development of the different architectural plans of the hospital and the car parking (including plans & faces views).
  2. Emplacement of the hospital and its multilevel parking in the area of Half Moon Bay.
  3. Structural design of a thirteen story general hospital and a multilevel car parking.
  4. Geotechnical and foundation design of the different foundation system.
  5. Pavement design of the access roads to the hospital and parking (prototype sections).
  6. Development of the hospital prototype.
  7. Final project report.
