Administrative Support Building

A multiyear modernization project for UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland is starting as work begins for a new Administrative Support Building (ASB).

The ASB will provide updated, modern administrative office space for physicians and hospital staff. It will not have any clinical functions. The three-story, 31,300 square-foot office building will be built on the corner of 52nd and Dover streets.

Construction of the ASB is an important piece of the BCH Oakland Campus Modernization, as it will allow for staff who are currently in buildings south of 52nd Street to relocate to a seismically updated building. It also will enable the future construction of the New Hospital Building (NHB) project.

Following the ASB construction, BCH Oakland will construct the NHB project, a reimagined, state-of-the-art hospital that will be designed to better meet the needs of patients, families, providers and staff.

The ASB project started in September 2023 with the demolition of four older buildings: 

•    A two-story building on Dover Street used for storage
•    Two detached sheds adjacent to the existing building
•    A single-story modular building used as hospital administrative space on 53rd Street
Two structures on the site also will be relocated to 53rd Street.

Construction Hours

8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday

Expected Project Completion Date

Construction of the building started in 2024. The project's expected opening is in 2026.
