Liaison: Dave Peden
The Kootenai Medical Center (KMC) is a 246‐bed community‐owned hospital in Northern Idaho. It employs over 1,700 people, making it the largest employer in Kootenai County. KMC will expand by creating a separate facility to serve women and children. This building will provide a more comfortable stay for women that are pregnant and in labor as well as newborns and young children by supplying high quality medical facilities and equipment. The KMC design team has the responsibility of performing all necessary design calculations to allow the building to withstand all service and environmental loads. The deliverables will be a set of detailed drawings that show the size and location of all structural members. This project gives the Senior Design Team an opportunity to acquire a deeper understanding of the design process and the requirements enforced by the codes and local jurisdictions.
