“This directory is not just for patients, it’s for doctors and nurses, administrators and vendors. It simply has to be accurate and complete. This isn’t a shopping mall, this is a serious place.”

-Facilities Manager

Zuckerberg San Francisco General is the bedrock of healthcare on the peninsula. This is the place where the rubber meets the road in caring for underserved segments of the community, for Mental Health Services, for education. It is also a patchwork of buildings dating back to the 19th century and a veritable maze of destinations.

Using the latest architectural diagrams combined with measurements taken during numerous site surveys, I was able to accurately reproduce the two main structures of the campus. Seventeen levels with over 200 destinations and the routes that guide travelers between them.

This effort will also provide mapping for printed materials, specialized instructions to patients and vendors visiting the campus, and eventually, a mobile directory guiding people throughout the campus using BlueTooth enabled tracking modules guiding people on their cell phones.
