The new central plant at Halifax Medical Center is designed to serve the current and future needs of the hospital’s main campus. The 17,500 square foot plant supports the entire medical center, including the new 10-story, 180-bed patient tower and emergency department.
The central energy plant has a cast-in-place reinforced concrete beam-and-slab system. TLC engineered two new boilers that included three 1200-ton chillers; circulating pumps; three 1500-kw generators and left space for expansion. Fuel oil tanks provide backup power for the entire hospital campus during emergencies.
