F.F. Thompson Hospital - Addition and Renovation

Project

Project entails the renovation and expansion of the FF Thompson Hospital in Canandaigua NY.  The combined area equates to approximately 128,000 SF; 76,000 SF for the new addition and 52,000 SF in renovation. The new addition includes a Surgical Suite, Endoscopy Suite, Rehabilitation and Sport Medicine Department and a Dining and Servery Area. The renovation consists of a new Kitchen, Administration Services Area, ICU, Cardio Pulmonary, Central Sterile and Lab and Nurse & Hospital Administration Areas.  

M/E Role

Design of a new HVAC system including a new 500 ton centrifugal chiller and cooling tower with primary/secondary pumping, three (3) new air handling units ranging from 24,000 to 47,000 cfm - all with indirect clean steam humidifiers, new DDC (direct digital control) system, new medical vacuum and medical air source equipment,  three (3) new kitchen make up air units totaling 17,000 cfm, and a new 6" wet pipe sprinkler system,  Electrically we reworked the existing medium voltage feeders, provided new normal power switchboards and distribution panels, utilized the existing two (2) 500kW diesel generators, and added new automatic transfer switches to all the essential loads.   

Challenges

The addition and renovation occurred in many locations in a functioning hospital, a high priority was placed on minimizing construction impacts in the areas still in use.  This included relocating the hospital emergency 480V ductbank, and providing a temporary central sterile area while the new OR suite was being constructed. The design accounted for multiple phases of construction, in multiple areas of the hospital over two years.
