Project list


Designed for a rapidly growing area on Florida’s east coast, Phase 1 of Cleveland Clinic Tradition Hospital opened in 2013 with 90 beds. To enhance the patient experience and shorten wait times, Martin Health System made the decision to begin the second phase expansion in 2015. Phase 2 consisted of a two-story horizontal expansion and a three-story vertical expansion, bringing the center to nine stories and adding 90 new patient rooms.


The single-story central energy plant includes three 600-ton water-cooled chillers and three 600-ton cooling towers to meet the 1,800 cooling load. Energy-efficient design and commissioning contributed to Phase 1 of Cleveland Clinic Tradition Hospital achieving LEED NC 2009 Gold certification. Phase 2 is on track to achieving LEED certification as well.
