The Chinatown Health Center is one of 12 public health clinics operated by the Department of Public Health. Builti in the 1970’s, the building is a three -tory concrete/steel frame structure built over the Robert C. Levy (Broadway) Tunnel. It is situated along the Mason Street Cable Car Line in the Nob Hill/Chinatown District of San Francisco and serves the many residents in the neighborhood.
The project included planning, design, and phased construction for barrier removal, accessibility improvements to the main reception area on the second floor, the men and women restrooms, exam rooms, interview rooms, elevator controls, paths of travel, and other related work. The phased construction allowed the facility to remain open to the public during the completion of the project.
