The project consisted of a 300,000-square-foot research facility. The building includes a combination of wet and dry research labs on the upper six floors and a penthouse-level mechanical space that houses most of the mechanical and electrical equipment. The Hospital’s West Central Energy Plant feeds steam, chilled water, and normal and standby power. The building is physically connected to the existing Research Building (RB-3) via below-grade and above-grade connectors. HAWA developed the required space, grounding, lighting, power, ventilation, and roof penetration for the ERRS equipment room. We provided rated exits from rated ERRS building risers for antenna pathways and coordinated with the architectural and engineering design team the requirements of the ERRS riser to meet the stringent fire rating requirements.
HAWA provided mechanical, electrical and IT infrastructure design services. At the completion of construction.
