Provided mechanical, electrical and structural design and construction phase services for the removal three existing hospital imaging equipment and installation of a new CT Scan, Digital X-Ray, and Fluoroscopy. The rooms housing the imaging equipment were fully renovated. The CT Scan and Fluoroscopy rooms were expanded to accommodate the new imaging equipment and related clearances. A summary of our scope of work is described below:
- Review of the drawings provided by the medical equipment supplier, Siemens. Coordinated the electrical, mechanical and plumbing requirements of the imaging equipment with the equipment manufacturer.
- Studied the existing electrical distribution system in order to determine the availability of spare power for the new imaging equipment and new HVAC units serving the imaging rooms. Provided two new electrical panelboards that serve the Digital X-Ray and Fluoroscopy.
- The existing panelboard serving the CT Scan equipment remained and a new circuit breaker, shunt trip and surge protector were provided serving the new CT Scan.
- Provided new lighting which was coordinated with the new structural uni-strut support, ceiling rails and ductwork. New receptacles, telephone & data outlets were provided.
- Existing air distribution system consisting of supply, return ductwork, related diffusers & registers were modified to serve the CT Scan, X-Ray, Fluoroscopy rooms and related control rooms. Heat output data provided by Seimens was used to perform the cooling load calculations and determine the required supply air quantities. The location and size of the ductwork were coordinated with the uni-struts support system and recessed light fixtures. Existing ductwork routed through the X-Ray room was relocated to accommodate the higher ceiling height requirement of the X-Ray equipment.
- A roof mounted air cooled chiller was utilized to serve the new CT Scan provided by Siemens. A heat exchanger located in the CT Scan storage room served as a heat exchange media between the Gantry of the CT Scan and the remote air cooled chiller. The heat exchanger was also piped to the exiting building chilled water supply & return piping for auxiliary cooling. Manual shut off valves were provided in the piping leading to the new chiller and existing building chilled water system for switch over purposes.
- A supplemental air conditioner was provided for the Fluoroscopy room consisting of a ceiling mounted Liberet air conditioning unit with a roof mounted condenser.
