Orlando Health Emergency Department and Medical Office Building at Horizon West
The two-story facility includes a freestanding emergency department and medical pavilion, spanning 78,000 square feet across a 74-acre campus. It features 16 patient rooms, outpatient diagnostics, telemedicine technology, labs, nurses stations and physician office space. Also housed in the facility is a human performance and wellness center as well as shell space for future expansion. A grade-level helipad is provided for emergency patient transfers.
Scalable and flexible building systems were key design goals to accommodate the planned future growth. TLC designed a new central energy plant with a 300-ton cooling capacity, which can be expanded to handle an additional 1,600 tons of cooling, plus a future steam boiler and more generators. Sustainable design features include premium efficiency motors, heat recovery and frictionless options for chillers and LED lighting. Premium glass reduces solar heat gain, contributing to the facility’s energy efficiency.
