Tower C was master planned to connect to the adjacent Tower D through a connector HUB. The expansion provides 18 additional labor and delivery beds, 24 medical/surgical beds, two new operating rooms and four floors of shell space for future growth. Renovations to the existing hospital consisted of a new sterile processing department, an expanded radiology department, a main lab and cystology expansion, a prep recovery/PACU expansion and relocation/expansion of the administration/support services departments.
To support the expansion, the existing central energy plant was expanded to add a new 1,200-ton chiller and a 2,000-kw generator. TLC’s MEP design involved the extensive phasing required to keep an already busy hospital functional throughout construction. Each of the over 20 sub-phases of work required close coordination with existing MEP system to assure pressures and airflow were maintained in critical spaces.
