Mills-Peninsula Health Services New Hospital
Located just two miles from California’s San Andreas fault, the new, 450,000 square foot Sutter Health medical facility uses Triple PendulumTM seismic isolation to withstand a potentially strong, magnitude 8 earthquake.
 
The 176 bearings are installed between the foundation and the columns of the building and allow the decoupled structure to move 30 inches in any direction during an earthquake. The compact Triple PendulumTM bearings yield greater maximum displacement and flexible damping properties compared to similar sized single pendulum bearings.
