Lakeland Regional Health’s new behavioral health hospital aims to provide comprehensive behavioral healthcare for both adults and children through inpatient and outpatient services.
The building contains a total of 96 beds split between private and semi-private configurations and is seeking LEED for healthcare 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.
