Lakeland Regional Health’s new behavioral health hospital aims to provide comprehensive behavioral healthcare for both adults and children through inpatient and outpatient services.
Designed to accommodate up to 72 beds, the initial phase of the building contains 60 beds and is seeking LEED for Healthcare v4 Gold certification.
The key components serving this building consist of natural gas boilers, a domestic hot water heat exchanger, rooftop air handling units, and an exterior generator with 96 hours of fuel storage. The facility has two 300-ton air-cooled chillers that provide N+1 redundancy. The benefit of having a N+1 redundant system is that if a chiller goes down the other chiller is able to provide cooling for the building.
Sustainable design features include premium efficiency equipment, demand controlled ventilation, low-flow plumbing fixtures, LED lighting, environmentally friendly refrigerants, adhesives, and sealants.
