Pomerado Hospital Expansion, Poway, CA

Architect: PBSJ, San Diego, CA

During the expansion of this hospital, Charles M. Salter Associates provided acoustical monitoring and computer modeling of the helicopter flight path at the existing hospital. The new hospital will double the size of Pomerado, expanding from 107 to 201 beds. The expansion is scheduled to be finished in July 2011. Our consulting efforts included recommendations for room acoustics, sound isolation, and HVAC noise and vibration reduction for the renovation and design of the new medical facility.
