    LRH - Cardiology Department

    Provided mechanical and electrical engineering design and construction phase services for renovation of various interior medical space and a shell space into a new cardiology department at an existing hospital. The new cardiology department included rooms for the following usage: Pulmonary function test (PFT), electrocardiogram (EKG), stress test, electroencephalogram (EEG), Echocardiogram (ECHO) and pulmonary rehabilitation. Other areas included physicians reading rooms, tech area setup, reception and other office space. A summary of our scope of work is described below:

    • The existing ductwork and air distribution devices in the renovation area were removed. The new mechanical system consisted of the Variable Air Volume (VAV) terminal boxes with hot water reheat coils. The existing supply and return ductwork which were capped previously and designed for future expansion were extended to various VAV boxes throughout the renovation area. The renovation area was divided into various zones and each zone was served by a VAV box which was controlled by its dedicated wall mounted thermostat.

    • Medical gas piping, including air, oxygen and vacuum, were extended from the existing main piping to various wall mounted zone valve box and outlets throughout the renovation area. Domestic Water, sanitary and vent piping were extended to the plumbing fixtures located in the two new toilet rooms and counter mounted sinks in various rooms.

    • Studied the existing normal power and emergency power distribution system and added a normal & emergency power panelbaord and a 45kva transformer. Spare capacity was provided to serve a future emergency department.

    • Provided illumination from normal power circuits as well as the emergency power circuits.

    • Provided normal and emergency power receptacles for exam rooms and various areas throughout the cardiology department some of which served equipment such as treadmills, stationary bikes, and other cardiology equipment.

    • New speakers, data, telephone, nurse call and fire alarm devices were provided and connected to the existing respective communication, nurse call and fire alarm system of the hospital.
