Ronald McDonald House at Stanford

About This Project

Location: Palo Alto, CA

Architect: Kenneth Rodrigues + Partners and Hoover Associates

Contractor: Vance Brown Inc.

Project Description: The Ronald McDonald House at Stanford is an expansion of the existing House of 47 rooms with a new ground-up building for 69 new rooms in a structure that is 3-stories with a one-level below grade garage. The House provides a place for families of patients receiving treatment at the Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital to stay during the treatment period. The demands for affordable temporary lodging for families with children being treated for life threatening illnesses at LPCH have increased and this project will help meet this demand.

Nova provided its services pro-bono to contribute to our local community and to help this important project to get built.

Nova Partners’ Role: Nova developed the budget, established appropriate project controls and procedures, assisted to negotiated an Amended and Restated Ground Lease with Stanford, provided the management and coordination between the House offices and committees to the contractor and design team.
