Awards: 2021 CCPPP - National Awards for Innovation and Excellence in Public-Private Partnerships - Silver Project Finance Award
This project, targeting LEED Silver, consists of a hospital to support medical outpatient clinics, clinical and administrative support, education and research space, and outpatient mental health programs. The hospital provides urgent care, a new dialysis unit, chronic disease prevention, seniors and comprehensive care for women, children, and teens.
The project features a geothermal field, along with heat recovery chillers, condensing boilers and very low pressure drop air handling systems (using oversized air handlers and oversized ductwork). The chiller plant consist of magnetic bearing chillers and geo-thermal heat pump chillers, the latter of which can be used to generate heating water for the building, or to store heat in the ground through the geo-thermal loop to be used at an appropriate time as determined by the building automation system. The heating plant consists of condensing hydronic boilers and heat from the geo-thermal heat pump chillers to feed low water temperature heating loops.
A dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS) serves the administrative spaces (non-CSA spaces) with dual duct variable air volume (VAV) boxes. Spaces with high occupancies have CO2 monitoring to regulate the volume of ventilation air supplied to the space. Enthalpy recovery wheels are used to pre-treat the ventilation air from the energy recovered from the breathable exhaust.
