Children’s Hospital Tower

About:

This 24,000 sq. ft. project is a prime contract that included the demolition of an existing four engine cogeneration system, jacket water heat exchangers, absorption and electric chillers, cooling towers and associated auxiliary equipment.  The existing 2-story Clinical laboratory building was structurally upgraded for installation for four new cooling towers and condenser water pumps, and to meet current seismic codes.  The roof of the adjacent cogeneration building was removed for installation of a new 3.5 turbine engine generator system and the structure modified to support a new high temperature hot water heat recovery boiler, two stand-by boilers, auxiliary equipment, and to meet current seismic codes.  The project also included installation of 2 new 700 ton absorption chillers, new medical air compressors, vacuum pumps and medical gas systems.  New electrical switchgear was installed to accommodate the increased system capacity.  The cogeneration system was installed for parallel operation and “island mode” operation.  All work had to be accomplished while the hospital facilities were occupied and in full operation.
