Design of a West Campus Central Energy Plant and utility distribution. The central plant includes electrical distribution switchgear, standby generators and the associated distribution switchgear, high-pressure steam boilers, and electric chillers and the associated cooling towers. New underground tunnels and separate electrical duct banks facilitated the utility distribution. The chiller plant is in a prominent location on the hospital’s West Campus, which is currently in development. In addition to the building adapting to a “wedge” site, the building was designed to have architectural features that will coordinate with existing and future buildings on the West campus.
HAWA Inc. provided design services for the MEP systems, including low-voltage structured cabling.
