This project involved a major renovation to a portion of the existing hospital in addition to an expansion to house the emergency department, surgical suites and auxilliary units and the construction of a new power plant. As a LEED® project, RSR is actively involved in design and shop drawing reviews and verification processes. The integration of the old and new mechanical, electrical and fire protection systems was a significant component in the scope of work. This involved assessing the central heating water and chilled water plants as well as emergency power and UPS systems in both the new and old facilities. We will be involved in confirming the energy model and verifying the energy use in future reviews.
