Sibley Memorial Hospital

SK&A is the structural engineer-of-record for a number of expansion projects at the Sibley Memorial Hospital.  The projects consisted of a number of new building additions to the existing Hospital campus.

Additions and alterations to the existing hospital consisted of the construction of new intensive care units; surgeon emergency; materials handling; pharmacy; MRI; linear accelerator; and heart catheterization laboratory, totaling approximately 40,000 sf.
