USC University Hospital Cath Lab

As a component of the Second Floor Imaging Department Master Plan that Morris was hired to complete, the upgrade and remodel of one of the facilities two Cardiovascular Cath Labs involves the replacement of the Cath Lab unit with a state of the art Cath Lab by General Electric.  The remodel includes a revamping of the interior finishes and reconfiguration of the room layout to accommodate the new G.E.

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center - Pediatric Unit

The Fashion Industry Guild donated funds for the upgrade of finishes, redesign of all casework, purchase of new furniture, and to replace headwalls in three patient rooms, toilets, and vestibule/work area for the Peds Acute Care Unit on the 4th floor of the North Tower.  The project scope also included an upgrade of the mechanical systems to correct inadequate conditioning of the patient rooms.  In this initial concept sketch using BIM software, Morris Architects was able to explore various ideas for form and imagery around the painting “Starry Night” by Vincent Van

CT Scanner Suite Remodel

The scope of this project included the remodel of the control room (shared by an adjacent CT Scanner room), the CT Scanner Suite, a patient restroom, and a patient changing room. The design team had to insure all areas remained accessible and operational during the project. This required a phased approach. Design features such as a Sky Factory virtual skylight located in the ceiling of the procedure room, new finishes such as wood plank resilient flooring, and accent paint were all added help promote a calm and healing environment.

Tustin Ranch Medical Office Building

Kaiser Permanente purchased an existing two-story concrete tilt-up industrial-type facility to expand its rapidly growing membership in Orange County. Morris, a Huitt-Zollars company, provided architectural and engineering services for the first phase tenant improvements which encompassed 71,000 SF for 42 medical providers and staff. Design challenges addressed multiple building deficiencies. A point-cloud model (3-D scan of existing conditions) was created and compared to the BIM model in order to distinguish discrepancies.

Rancho Santa Margarita

Huitt-Zollars' noteworthy land development history created this lead civil engineering consultant project opportunity. Huitt-Zollars provided extensive infrastructure work for this 5,000-acre community. For example, the widening of two parkways required bridge improvements, survey, planning, and utility improvements. This multiphase project blended residential, commercial, industrial, and recreational milieus.

Oxnard Village

Oxnard Village contains an approximately 62-acre redevelopment located on the westerly entrance to the City of Oxnard. The original site was under-utilized and outdated. The new development will include 1,500 residential units, including wrap-style apartments, garden style apartments, courtyard townhomes, and row house townhomes. The project also features a “main street” retail district, local transit center, regional multi-use trail, parks, and numerous green and recreational spaces. Huitt-Zollars served as Civil Engineer for the master developer and subsequent merchant builders.

Fullerton Transportation Center

In support of the Fullerton Transportation Center Specific Plan and Environmental Impact Report, Huitt-Zollars was retained to complete technical design studies and reports to support the public/private joint venture in the redevelopment of Fullerton’s Transportation Center. The 40-acre redevelopment area includes a number of new structures comprised of mixed-use residential, commercial, and retail businesses, including above and below ground parking garages. The project also includes new landscaping, roadway improvements, park areas, and renovations to the existing station.

Rancho Mission Viejo Planned Development

With the goal to provide families with the opportunity to experience what they refer to as “Ranch Life,” Rancho Mission Viejo set out to create a robust community that would connect homeowners with the natural environment and landscape of California. As the Rancho Mission Viejo Company moves forward in executing their “Ranch Plan” to construct nearly 14,000 homes for future residents, Huitt-Zollars was chosen to assist in the process.

Mapping for Conveyance of Open Space Lands

Huitt-Zollars was retained by The Irvine Company to prepare documents, legal descriptions, and exhibits to support the conversion of more than 20,000 acres of open space land to Orange County Parks. The Irvine Company manages what began in 1899 with the formation of The Irvine Ranch. This Ranch was initially 94,000 acres; now many of Orange County’s cities exist entirely on this land. The 20,000 acres donated to the County was the last of the undeveloped land.

Target Distribution Center and Import Warehouse

Huitt-Zollars was responsible for the preliminary entitlement process and engineering design for the development of a 3.4 million square-foot import warehouse and regional distribution center for Target Corporation. This facility will serve the major portion of Target southern California. The design involves street, sewer, water, storm drain, traffic signals, street lighting and striping plans, grading, landscape architecture, and preparation of the master plan of drainage and all of the on-site and off-site topographic surveys, mapping, and construction staking.
