Sharp Medical Center Chula Vista Ocean View Tower

The $244 million Ocean View Tower at Sharp Medical Center in Chula Vista, California opened on January 14, 2020, and is the South Bay’s first new hospital in the area in 40 years. The hospital tower includes 106-beds, six operating rooms with pre and post-op support, sterile processing, dietary services, materials management, and support services. The hospital tower ensures that world-class care is available to serve the needs of San Diego’s fastest growing region.

In this project, Coffman provided smoke control special inspection services for the 197,000 sf tower which included both active and passive smoke control systems, pressurized stairwells, and smoke compartments throughout to achieve a defend-in-place life safety strategy.
