project at a glance

Spectrum Health, Helen DeVos Children's Hospital is a 14-story, 464,000 square foot, 142-bed hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It features a four-level cast-in-place concrete podium foundation, 11-story structural steel frame, the “Visionwall 4 Element” glazed curtain wall system and connected pedestrian bridge.

 

More than 1,500 pieces of artwork created or inspired by more than 8,000 children, including a large ceramic tile mural, fill the interior space, while the exterior plaza doubles as a vegetated roofing system atop the podium base to reduce urban heat island affects and serve as an interactive park playground with trees and landscaping. Areas for play and entertainment throughout the building also add to the child-friendly environment.
