The 77,000 square foot South San Francisco Wellness Center is a new health center and office building which will expand the San Mateo County Health System’s ability to deliver primary patient care for residents of North San Mateo County, a traditionally underserved population. The Wellness Center will house the Medical Clinic, the Adult & Aging Services and other County departments.
The building will be built with Mass Timber and Cross Laminated Timber construction and will be designed per the County Green Building Policy to be all-electric, and LEED Certified. A solar photovoltaic array over the parking lot and on the rooftop, and a battery backup system to allow standby power capacity will be provided to offset building consumption, reducing Carbon footprint. Additional sustainability features include sustainable building materials such as green infrastructure, EV chargers, and bicycle parking stalls. The new South San Francisco Wellness Center contributes to the County of San Mateo’s dedication to advancing equity by providing accessible public space through the implementation of gender-neutral restrooms, ADA parking stalls, etc.
