Concrete Pan Joists
The new 6-story hospital tower expanded the Banner Estrella Medical Center by 280,000 square feet. The tower offers 178 additional private patient beds to serve the growing West Valley, bringing the total number of beds to 392. The expansion includes a 6,000 square foot addition to the existing central plant, a tie into the existing mechanical tunnel, and two additional parking structures. The new parking structures accommodate a total of 837 vehicles – a 171,619 SF 420-stall staff parking structure and a 167,614 SF 417-stall guest parking structure. Both structures are 5-levels. The tower was built using a cast-in-place concrete pan joist system.
