Children’s Hospital of New Orleans Expansion and Renovation
Driven by the need to better serve an increasing number of patients, the Children’s Hospital of New Orleans (CHNOLA) has embarked on a major expansion and renovation to expand and renovate its Henry Clay campus, as well as develop a new State Street campus. The multiphased expansion includes renovating several historic buildings, building a new outpatient pavilion and critical care and surgery tower and expanding the pediatric cardiac intensive care unit.
The expansion is part of CHNOLA’s master plan, for which TLC provided engineering services. We designed an energy-efficient active chilled beam system that provides better thermal comfort than a conventional HVAC system. The expansion of the central energy plant serving the Henry Campus adds 3,000 tons of cooling. Technology highlights include a new campus-wide integrated security system for access control and CCTV and new infrastructure to support the recent changeover to EPIC.
