Design of HVAC, temperature controls, plumbing, fire protection, and medical gas systems for the new 120,000-square-foot, six-story patient care addition. The $80 million facility has 120 beds.
The new patient care addition has four patient floors with all private rooms, designed to provide state-of-the-art inpatient care in a family-friendly environment. Patient floors include a 30-bed Intensive Care Unit, two 30-bed Medical/Surgical Units, and 30 Comprehensive Rehabilitation beds. The first floor houses a state-of-the-art cardiodiagnostics center, including nuclear medicine.
Air-handling systems include four AHUs with associated return fans; two isolation room exhaust fans; toilet exhaust systems; miscellaneous ventilation and exhaust systems for mechanical, electrical, and generator equipment spaces; and building automation system temperature and pressurization controls.
Cooling systems include a new central chilled water plant with three electric centrifugal chillers, three induced draft cooling towers, associated chilled water and condenser water pumping systems and controls.
Heating systems include a new heating plant consisting of four new modular boilers, primary and secondary hot water pumping systems, backup steam to hot water heat exchanger system, and all associated controls.
Clean steam systems include two new clean steam generators and distribution systems to provide steam for humidification within the AHUs.
Plumbing systems include a domestic water tri-plex booster pump system, potable cold water system, non-potable water system, two new domestic hot water heaters, two hot water storage tanks, and a Liquitech hot water treatment system.
The mechanical design includes a new fuel oil system for a newly installed emergency generator. Special sound attenuation was required due to the generator's proximity to the hospital’s front door.
