UCI Medical Center

As a member of the design/build team, LCI participated in the design of the landscape and environmental components associated with the UCI Irvine Douglas Hospital. Extensive collaboration and coordination were required to meet UCI, Division of the State Architect, Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development, and County of Orange requirements. Envisioned as a series of rooms along a meandering pathway, the campus garden speaks to a quiet ambience, allowing for private conversations or contemplation by patients, hospital staff, and visitors.

This facility in Huntington Beach is an innovative training center that develops the learning and technical skills of both cadets and students by providing an environment that best balance quality enhancements of both building design and landscape.

LCI achieved this goal by creating a park scenario for passive recreation, biddle and grinder courses for physical training activities and memorial as a focal point next to the building’s main entry. A number of prominent trees were protected through strict construction and management procedures while applicable stormwater techniques such as Modular Wetland Biofiltration systems were considered for the project.
