Dove House Façade Repair – Provided an investigative study and designed foundation repairs for structural concerns to the façade of the Dove House, an Inpatient Hospice Care building. Various cracks were occurring in the building façade due to thermal and differential movements.
Energy Audit – Performed an energy audit to determine potential energy and water reduction opportunities. Systems included were the central heating and cooling plants, air handling systems, domestic cold and hot water systems, wastewater, and lighting systems.
Chilled Water Plant Study – Chilled water plant study that included documentation of the existing equipment and distribution system, master planning for replacement of aging equipment and expansion of capacity, and modifications to system arrangement to improve distribution and reduce energy use. The electric service was also evaluated to determine required upgrades to support the chilled water plant expansion.
Chilled Water System Upgrade, Phase I – Provided mechanical and electrical design for Phase I of the chilled water plant upgrade including the installation of a 620-ton chiller, cooling tower, primary and secondary pumps, and associated structural and electrical work. It was designed to accommodate a future change from a primary system to a primary/secondary distribution system. This project represented the first phase of a three-phase master plan that, when completed over the next three years, will completely improve the operation and efficiency of the facility’s chilled water system, as well as provide redundancy and additional capacity for future building expansion.
Chilled Water Plant, Phase II – Provided mechanical and electrical design for Phase II of the chilled water plant upgrades including the installation of a second 620-ton chiller, cooling tower, primary and secondary pumps, and associated structural and electrical work. Once Phase II is complete, the new chilled water plant will serve all current hospitals loads.
AHU-1 Replacement – Provided mechanical and electrical engineering to replace AHU-1 that serves the sterilization lab area at Carroll Hospital Center. The existing unit provides 100% outdoor air, and the capacity of the replacement air handling unit will be designed to meet the current demand, plus an allowance for future capacity
Emergency Generator – Provided engineering services to replace the hospital’s existing 620 kW emergency generator and emergency power distribution switchboard with a new 800 kW generator and emergency power distribution switchboard to provide additional capacity for the hospital’s emergency distribution system.
HVAC System Upgrade – Provided design associated with upgrading HVAC systems that serve the sterilization lab and the family birthplace operating rooms, exam rooms, and rehab rooms.
Exhaust System Study – Performed a study of the exhaust system that serves the Critical Care Unit.
Chilled Water System Study – Performed a study of the chilled water system that serves the main operating room air handling unit.
